"Are you an actor?"
True lol but when you directly translate it, you sound like Frankenstein xD
Русские говорят Вы более старшим по возрасту и положению. Друзья говорят друг другу Ты.
Exactly :) our course is what you would call ё-compliant, which means it uses ё in sentences. In some countries, ё is not considered a separate letter. For example, in Russia ё can be replaced with e, while in Belarus ё is separate from e. Even so, both countries use ё.
Е sounds like je when stressed and like i when not, ë is jo and it is always stressed... usually you write the two points only when writing pronouns
This is not always true by the way. I have gotten one or two "wrongs" (still, after hundreds of exercises), where the "mistake" was 'еще' instead of 'ещё'.
I'm still wary of omitting the dots, as having to repeat the task only because of that is a kspitfa.
Technically, it isn't an umlaut (or a diaeresis). Just imagine it like if the dot in "i" was optional, with the dot changing the pronunciation of the letter.
My little brother runs up to the screen and sticks his face to look and says "Why does the e have eyes?" XD
As someone already mentioned, Ты is usually reserved for friends or people you are on informal terms with, and Вы is formal and how you should greet strangers. In addition, вы is the plural form of "you" so even if you are addressing a group of friends, you use вы because there are multiple people. Hope this helps!
Help, I am not sure if I have thd correct keyboard. Is it the correct one? ( љњертѕуиопшѓасдфгхјклчќзџцвбнмж) If so, why can't I find the correct (I) in it?
There is no Russian keyboard on Duolingo, you'll have to find one yourself. You can find some good ones in the Discussion section, if you search it.
Android offers the Russian keyboard, just click the button to the left of the space bar (settings) and select the languages.
Go to the Russian Discussions and there will be one discussion at the top that will explain how to find a Russian keyboard.
If you are on a Mac computer, go into keyboard setting and under "input sources" you can add different languages and then under "keyboard" you can click the setting "show keyboard and emoji viewers in menu bar" and you can switch back and forth between the two keyboards, it just takes a minute to learn the different keys.
how do i type the dots above the e? Duolingo accepted "ты актер" but I'd still like to do it correctly, and the e with the dots does not appear to be on my virtual Russian keyboard.
Some times the o letter is pronounced "a" like in это and many other words how do we know when to pronounce it a?
Example: молоко (milk) is pronouced "малако". Only the last "o" is pronounced as "o", because "-ко" i's the stressed syllable in this word. In unstressed syllables "o" is reduced to "a".
Is the only difference between a statement and a question a rise in intonation?
i have a russian keyboard on my phone,but theres no "I" looking thing on it.
Tbl is not accepted, even though I have an english keyboard. I can't hit the B as it is in the answer.
it needs more explanation on how to write sentences, if you dont need to put are you, please explain that
Does anyone have any tips on learning the phonetic sounds of the Russian letters? It is really slowing my learning down.
How do you pronounce this word? BOT I heard two syllables with this word, so I typed Tbl because I thought it woudl be the correct answer, but my answer was wrong.
Question, wouldn't it be proper to learn Вы first instead of Ты? I remember that the informal form is for intimate people. If we practiced russian with ты with actual russians it may feel very uncomfortable, no?
Why is it ты and then Ты? Whats the difference or is it the same thing. Just capital letter?
