"Yes, see you soon."
Translation:Да, до скорого.
In English you also have more pretty interchangable greetings: "See you x See you soon x See you in a bit x etc."
Here you are beeing tought two of them: Увидимся - literally "We see each other" and до скорого which literally means "until soon". And as well as in English, you can chose which one you want to use and when with no real difference between them.

Yes, "г" sounds like "geh" (also the name of the letter). But in this case no. It sounds like English "v" or Russian "в." It has to do with grammar rules. It is pronounced this way "скорово" in neuter and masculine single adjectives (and pronouns that replace adjectives) in Genitive. It also has historical reasons: pronunciation changed with time, but spelling did not. "его" is another example, it's pronounced "ево." It's best to just accept it and move on.
Why are there NO lessons, explanations, no vocabulary, no definitions, no guidelines on usage? It's just sink or swim based on what you show up with, and if you get something wrong you don't know why or how to correct it. This is not learning, just frustration. Very poor site!
So, I typed "Да, смотрю вы скорого." I realize my grammar is probably a little off. But is this really wrong?
When you watch for something or somebody now, you are "Смотрю". When you will be watch somebody or something, you are "увижу".
No, there's no mistake. It's supposed to be pronounced as "skorova". The "-ого" ending is a historical spelling, but in speech it's "-ova".
That's very nasty. All the lesson we learn dosvidagna and skorovo and all of a sudden we have to use poka?
We haven't learned this specific alternate of "see you soon" up to this point. Shame to get dinged for this
Скоро - soon, means a short period of time and this word is an adverb. The word скорого is never used without до. Only до скорого and it's a short form of the full phrase
до скорого свидания.
