Вы всё по́няли? 2.2 То́ни е́дет в Яросла́вль

Упражне́ние 1. Бра́тья и сёстры.

There is no single word equivalent for “siblings” in Russian, so you will need to use the plural phrase бра́тья и сёстры. A sibling can be older (ста́рший) or younger (мла́дший). The words for “cousin” also use the terms брат / сестра́:

двою́родный брат

двою́родная сестра́

It may help to think of these as “second-related”--listen for the дво- (два) at the start.

One, or more? Mouse over "Singular" if the speaker mentions one relative, and "Plural" if she mentions more than one.
