"This boy is eating."
Translation:Этот мальчик ест.
Есть is a regular verb for "to eat".
Кушать is a synonym but it's usually used:
- when you politely invite somebody to eat;
- when you talk to a child or about a child.
In other cases adults don't use кушать very often and some people would call this word too vernacular (but you definitely will be understood).
You navigate to windows settings - language settings. Here you would like to add a new "preferred language", and choose Russian. From here on you will have Russian keyboard as an alternative input in addition to English. If you will, you can change the Russian keyboard to "Russian - Mnemonic", which will make sure most of the letters are placed in a more familiar order.
:) good luck!
Can I skio the writing tasks somehow? It keeps repeating and cannot continue the daily challenge. I dont have Russian keyboard and leson one starts without teaching the alphabet anyway,you need basic knowledgw to be able to read. So I would be fine without writing . Otherwise am enjoyable course, I love testing my knowledge
