Мой багаж находится в такси is incorrect? Why?
In this case the translation would probably be better "my luggage is located in the taxi"
"Located" also is useless in the Russian version of this.
I think, it should be correct because you can say like that.
It's a bit formal in Russian, "находится" doesn't really serve a point in this sentence.
Yeah that's what I put and I got it wrong
Any good tips on when to use моя or мой?
Mm, I can guess its depend of the noun gender: моя for femenim, мой for masculine.
Don't forget моё fore neuter!
And мои for plurals
Мой (male) and моя (female)!
How come this doesn't start with teaching us the alphabet?
Exactly what I was thinking. It's so hard without knowing all the letters and their pronunciations.
It's strange, this course is called "Alphabet" and doesn't teach it. Maybe all the learners have to learn the Russian Alphabet theirselves?
Very strange! I ised tengu Cyrillic app and it helped me learn, then i just restarted the duo lingo course
How is ж pronounced?
Like "zh." Think of the "si" sound in the middle of the word "vision."
Except, ж is a retroflex consonant in Russian, so "zh" but with your tongue rolled further back. (Know this because my language has this sound)
Perhaps like the american english "beige rug", as the tongue slides back to prepare for the initial r
A Russian YouTuber described ш similarly using the word "shrimp".
Yes, it's basically an 'r-coloured' sh/zh sound.
You'll only get this if you speak a little bit if french. Its like the J in Je, which means I.
Is "у" ever used to say "in" in Russian, or is that only in Ukrainian?
Hi. I don't the difference between в and на. Can somebody explain it?
в=in, whereas на="here (is)," insinuating a transaction (like you would hand someone a pen and say "Here it is").
"в" also means “into”. иди в воду - go into the water.
“на” - "on". на поверхности - on the surface
can I download a russian keyboard on my computer for this program
I thought this sentence would require the Locative case. В таксе and not B такси as there's no movement. The luggage is located in the taxi. Could anyone with more knowledge help please?
Well, it wouldn't require because такси is an exception. Because of that, такси doesn't take all of the cases.
You can't call Метро subway and then get pedantic about the specific type of luggage we name.
this language is cool
sorry can anyone tell me the difference between моя, мой?
Мой is used to describe masculine nouns and моя is used to describe feminine nouns.
