This is my motor. I'm sick of you and dad always confusing it with my motor.
should н be similar to ñ in Spanish? In this case it sounds like "Ni-e".
It sounds like that in this case because of the е, but it wouldn't sound like that in the word на, for example.
that would be нье - as ending for some french terms and names such as Fournier
More like oignon. :) The sounds are very close, but not exactly the same though.
It's because е sometimes sounds like "ye". Mostly in the beginning of words, if I'm not mistaken.
Can I ask (and maybe this is covered later), if the verb "to be" is not usually used, what is это ? Or is this just one of the rare times it is used? I am confused by that in the tips and tricks and then all of our sentences end up being "this is" and "that is" and they all use это instead of the em-dash. Can anyone help?
Nevermind. I found the answer in a different comment section but am leaving it in case anyone else has trouble, too.
это is this.
I ask a lot of stupid questions but I do learn from my mistakes in that way! :)
Is "eto ne radio, mama" really an error? Why put an accent? EDIT: Now I understood - é is for Э. And e is for russian Е.
They want you to put some é or è (I'm horrible at accents), because э sounds more like one of these accentted E's.---------Anyway, at least in windows: È=ALT+0200 É=ALT+0201 è=ALT+0232 é=ALT+0233 (You press ALT, not getting your finger off of it, and then you write the numbers. And then you get the accented letter (: ).--------And I also think it should be acceptable. It's acceptable in the Italian Duo course, and probably in many other Duo courses.
There is no way of knowing if you should put the "a" or not. Marking it without the "a" wrong, is not correct.
Can someone tell me where i can learn what these letters and sounds are?
I put "this is not radio, mom" and it didn't accept it because I put "not" instead of "no"? I'm a bit confused, help?
Should be " this is no radio mom" or "this is not a radio mom" How many ways should i tell you so you understand that THIS IS NOT A RADIO MOMMMM
If you're talking about a specific object and stating that it is not a radio, then "This is not radio" is not correct English; you need an article. So "This is not a radio" would be correct.
I don't understand these types of questions. Are you supposed to say the translation into the microphone?
