    Доктор - одушевленный. Телефон - неодушевленный предмет.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Телефон is a masculine inanimate noun, therefore doesn't change in the accusative case.

    Доктор is a masculine animate noun, therefore ends in an А in the accusative.

    That's why I included a link for the accusative case lesson. So someone who doesn't know about animate vs. inanimate, male vs. female in the accusative can study that lesson.

    Thank you,

    Hello,
    Please help me to fix my many mistakes. Also there are quite a few places that I'm not sure of the case. I think they are g.c. but this lesson threw me for a loop.

    Thank you,

    Scott


    Level 2 – Lesson 25


    Сейчас я работаю в компании (p.c. of компания) Кодак, и я живу у своего (what case????) знакомого (what case????). and why the change to «знакомого»??????
    Now I'm working at the Kodak company, and I live at my friend's (acquaintances) place. (refering to a male).
    У моего (what case????) знакомого (what case????) большой дом. - My friend (male)(acquaintance) has a big house.
    Этот доктор один из моих (g.c.) знакомых. - This doctor is one of my acquaintances (friends).
    Сейчас я живу у него. - Now I live at his place.
    From lesson 19 - Сейчас я живу у своей (what case????) знакомой (why not знакомая? because it's not nominative). - (Referring to a female) Now I live at my friend's (acquaintance's) place.
    Но я должен был работать с девяти (g.c.) утро до шести (g.c.) вечера. - But I had to work from nine in the morning until six at night.

    Я могла (fem.). - I was able to.
    обменять – to exchange.
    Я хотел обменять немного денег (g.c. of деньги). - I wanted to exchange some money.
    Lesson practice:
    We have a doctor in the hotel.
    We don't have a doctor here.
    I already know of a doctor in the city.
    Then I could give you his telephone number.
    That was a good job. (referring to work).
    Excuse me, do you still need to call the doctor?
    I need to call him but I can wait.
    They wanted to have dinner with me at 7.
    My friend has only a little time.
    Earlier I was able to drive to there by car.
