      Hello Hyeongil,

      Thanks for your feedback. I agree that for some words the number of examples is very limited.

      The way it works for the moment is that the examples for every word in this table are taken from the sentences for our series “Russian Word of the Day”. If the noun is often used, you can see many examples, if not, you will at least see two examples (given for the Word of the Day).

      I like the idea of adding more independant examples very much and already thought about it myself, but at the moment, unfortunately, we simply do not have enough time resources for that, so will have to postpone.

      A more consistant support of our readers could change that, by the way, but for now it is what it is.

      Having said that, I think we already can improve the user experience by displaying all the available examples right here on this page so you don’t have to click anywhere else to see them. I will add this to the TO-DO list and you can expect this in the nearest future.

      As for Everyday Russian, we are not planning to develop this site anymore and gradually moving the content from there to other websites of the network.

      In any case, thank you for the suggestion. If you have others, you are always welcome. 🙂

        Dear “Learn Russian Words”,
        Thank you for your kind reply on my comment.
        I have studied the Russian language by myself around 6 months. It means that I am still beginner (CECR A1 Level) for the Russian.
        I faced one problem of cases endings first, it is very hard for me to memorize them properly. Please refer to the web, https://mykeytorussian.com/russian-cases/.
        It is a kind of freaky and hectic. I’d like to solve this problems with the repeated drills of case declension with examples. I know that it will take time.
        One more thing, the pronunciations of case ending are not familiar with me, for example, declension of семья, with the stress changes.
        That’s the reason, I asked you to provide more examples and audios.
        Thanks again.

          It’s an interesting method, makes total sense. Thanks for sharing.

          Hopefully with time we will be able to add more examples for each word. 🙂

          Thank you for your feedback 🙂
