Hi,

I would like to know how to say "since" or "for..amount of time."

For example,

I have been studying Russian for 1 month. / since March.

My attempt: я изучаю русски язык со один ме́сяце/ мартe

спасибо! Thanks!

    Я изучаю русский один месяц, с марта.
    Since is "С", but in case of product lables "since 1945" you should use "founded" instead (in russian - основано).

    Я изучаю русский язык один месяц, с марта. <Don't forget to start a new phrase with a capital letter.>

    wrmit1989, you can also translate your example as "Я изучаю русский язык в течение одного месяца, с марта" (in order to understand that the preposition "for" can be translated as "в течение")
    Usually we drop "в течение" as redundant, but I recommend you to consider my version as correct "school" translation.
