Declension is given in the "Grammatik" section, not as a table, but in a shorter form. If you want to see the table, follow the canoo.net link from BeoLingus context menu and from there click on "Wortformen" -- you'll the declension in table form.

comment Speaking German with accent: a status symbol or a sign of being a foreigner?
This is very important point. I am myself not a Russlandsdeutscher (I am even not Russian, after all :) ), but my wife is and it is really a tragedy for many of those people, who were courageous enough to remain Germans in the country where people generally hated this nation after the WWII, to face discrimination almost everywhere, finally manage the way to your Vaterland just to become "Russians" here and again face discrimination, prejustice etc. But still there is a good point in your answer!

Thank you for your compliment, but there was something more in it than just "valuing my opinion", especially because I am still a student, not a full-time developer. But this is still a very interesting point!

Thank you for your sincere answer. From my side I must confess that the tolerance towards foreign accents in Russian is much worse, this is probably the result of nation being mono-cultural for long time.

Hmm, I have never thought of it but he has a very strong dialect so that it takes people for quite some time to get accustomed to his normal speech. Thanks a lot!
