Why is important to understand these differences? In Russian, we have many verbs that completely change their meaning when we add different prefixes to them. They can have a totally opposite meaning. In comparison with English, it is like a phrasal verb, but in Russian, we add it in front of the verb and we write it together. For example, turn on≠turn off, is включить ≠ выключить. You see, you forget to write just one letter and the verb gets a completely different meaning. On the other hand, there are verbs that in English have a few different meanings, however, in Russian, they are not one verb. For example, the verb “to try”. Do you know that in Russian we use three different words, and which one you will choose depends on context? These verbs are пробовать – попробовать, стараться – постараться and пытаться – попытаться.

Would you like to know more about these verbs? I hope I could explain in a nutshell why they are important and show you why they are interesting :)
