    Past and Instrumental

    I was wondering if when you were using был(а) you would always use the instrumental case because I learned that you would use it when you were discussing a past profession, but I've seen times where it hasn't been used and has been used in various contexts. Could someone please help me out with this? Спасибо Большое

    The same rule is valid also for a future profession, isn't it?

    For a future works only instrumental case imho.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.
