How to Say “To Play a Game” “To Play a Musical Instrument” in Russian

April 10, 2018 | Tags: Prepositional case in Russian

Did you know that we use two different cases to say “to play a game” and “to play  a musical instrument”?  In the first case, we use the Accusative case with the preposition “в” and in the second, the Prepositional case with the preposition “на”.

For example,

  1. Я играю в компьютерную игру. I play a computer game.
  2. Мы играем в футбол. We play football.
  3. Она учится играть на скрипке. She is learning to play violin.
