"I am Jenny."

Translation:Я Дженни.

Sorry, but it is "stupid" (I said sorry) to try to translate names. Anyone can give it different sounds. Maybe for a placement test, o for starters could be better to focuse only on words.

I think they deliberately chose words (including proper nouns) that sound similar to English words so you could learn the alphabet and phonemes faster. Like "J" is " Дж" or "sh" is "ш".

i think that since this lesson is for learning the alphabet and its sounds it's ok

December 17, 2015


I take your point Kev. But this is one of the very few questions on this placement test that I have got right! My Russian is rusty by 50 years :-( More luck than judgement I think!

How do you get the russian symbols?

December 22, 2015


If its mobile, you have to change settings for keyboard displays

Depends on the platform you use. Android? Windows?

Why is the 'J' sound of 'Jenny' translated as 'Дж' instead of just 'Ж'? Дженни instead of Женни Wouldn't that be 'Dzhenni' and not 'Zhenni'? It doesn't make sense to me

June 14, 2016


Yes, 'Дженни' sounds like [Dzhenni], 'Женни' sounds like [Zhenni] - no [D]

When we say the name 'Jenny' (the English name in Russian), we clearly pronounce the sound [D]. That's why 'Дженни'

The sound of 'Ж' doesn't match with the sound of 'J'.

'Ж'[zh][ʒ] ≠ 'J'[dzh][dʒ]. It is necessary to get used to it.

I hope I could be of help. ))

The letter ж is like a French or Turkish "j" - or like the "s" in "measure".

But дж is like an English "j". Sometimes English writes that sound with a "d" in it, like in "nudge".

What is the difference between й and и

December 9, 2015


"Й" is a consonant letter and sounds like the first sound in "yes" or "you".

"И" is a vowel and sounds like the vowel sound in "mean".

Меня зовут дженни?

November 14, 2015


It is not always the same :) It can be the answer to "Who is Jenny here?"

I don't nt have Cyrillic keyboard. And i am forever stuck... can't skip the sentence

August 22, 2018


Why can't you skip this part? My phone doesnt support these symbols...

September 16, 2018


th8s is ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ ridiculous

October 20, 2016


I thougth the first lesson started with the russian (cirilic) alphabet... I need to learn from the beginning because I can not write it in lesson 4. I did first 3 lessons because it's easy relate sounds an images. I think this language learning app has to teach from the begining a non comon simbols like cirilic alphabet and maybe a list of equivalents in english alphabet. This will be a big step to starting learn russian

September 4, 2018


Exactly how do I write a response in Cyrrilic with an English keyboard?!

September 26, 2018


No Russian keyboard

September 29, 2018


Can't get past this damn level without a Russian keyboard smh

September 29, 2018


I think then is not correct way to introduce yourself. "Я Дженни " sounds like "Me Tarzan".. "Меня зовут Дженни" is something else

Better not spell Jenny wrong
