    Pimsleur male/female questions

    Hello,
    I just want to be clear on this before I try to move on. Are these correct?

    The acquaintance (friend) is male:

    Брат моего (g.c.) знакомого (g.c.) должен приехать в Москву (a.c.). - My friends brother is supposed to come to Moscow.

    The acquaintance (friend) is female:

    Брат моей (g.c.) знакомой (g.c.) должен приехать в Москву (a.c.). - My friends brother is supposed to come to Moscow.

    сестра not yet discussed in Pimsleur but:

    The acquaintance (friend) is male:

    Сестра моего (g.c.) знакомого (g.c.) должна приехать в Москву (a.c.). - My friends sister is supposed to come to Moscow.

    The acquaintance (friend) is female:

    Сестра моей (g.c.) знакомой (g.c.) должна приехать в Москву (a.c.). - My friends sister is supposed to come to Moscow.

    Thank you,

    Scott

    Всё правильно.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    You can tell you have made progress in Russian, if they correct your English instead of your Russian!
