Something is the forty-ninth (assuming read left to right) skill in the language tree for Russian. It teaches the words for "something", "someone", and the like. It has three lessons.

Grammar Notes[]

There are two ways of indicating "someone", for example; кто-нибудь and кто-то. The difference is that кто-нибудь is used if the situation is hypothetical and кто-то is used if the subject is known to exist but is not known. That is, if the subject could be, use the -нибудь variant; if the subject is known, but it is "something" still, then use the -то variant.
