    Verbs

    Can someone help with these verbs, with the imperfective and perfective tenses of each verb infinitive.

    to collect, to visit, to listen to, to hear, to draw, to do crafts, to swim, to dance, to hike, to walk, to do

    How do you say, I'm doing my homework.

    What about these...
    In the spring, summer, autumn, winter...
    В весне, в лете, в осене, в зиме

    After school...
    После школы

    I play football.
    Я играю в карты.

    I don't know these translations...
    I am going to my friend's house.
    I am at my friend's house.

    Adjectives...
    Short (height), Long (height), hard (durability), soft, fat, thin/skinny, big (size), light (weight), heavy

    Thanks
    В эту ночь все огни погасли в Джорджии
    В эту ночь невиновного человека повесили
    Не доверяй тайну никакому деревенщине-адвокату
    Ведь руки городского судьи в крови

    to collect - собирать, собрать (imperfective, perfective)
    to visit - идти, ходить к кому-нибудь
    to listen to - слушать, послушать
    to hear - слышать, услышать
    to draw - to draw...a card? a picture? a bucket of water?
    to do crafts

    to dance - танцевать, потанцевать
    to hike - идти, ходить в поход
    to walk - as in strolling or just going by foot?
    to do - делать, сделать

    Sounds to me like someone needs to get a dictionary or a 501 Russian Verbs or something....

    I'm doing my homework.
    Я делаю домашнее задание.
    Я занимаюсь уроками.

    in the spring - весной
    in the summer - летом
    in the autumn - осеню

    I play football.
    Я играю в футболь.

    I am going to my friend's house.
    Я иду к другу.

    I am at my friend's house.
    Я у друга.

    I think....wait for confirmation on those last two, they sound funny (or maybe just wrong).

    Adjectives...look in a dictionary.
    Yay! I broke 200 posts!

    They are absolutely correct and natural. You can say as well:
    Я иду к другу домой. or
    Я иду к другу в гости.

    Я дома у друга. or
    Я в гостях у друга.

    But in most cases it's unnecessary to add "домой", "в гости" etc.
    "Happy new year, happy new year
    May we all have a vision now and then
    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend"
