Indicating possession

 

Hi,
I have learned how to make statements about family members, so I can say for instance 'my brother lives in England' - Братът ми живее в Англия. But suppose I wanted to talk about someone else's brother? How could I say 'Ivan's brother lives in England'?

Много благодаря!

    Just as ninkich has said already - most common is to say:
    Братът на Иван живее....
    Just for reference I would add that you can use possessive pronouns also, in their long and short forms:

    Неговият брат живее в Лондон. (long poss.pr.) / Брат му живее в London. (short poss.pr)

    Sometime you can hear also a combination of both:

    На Иван брат му живее в Лондон.
