The audio sounds distorted for me; like it's sped up awkwardly. I'm assuming it is just buggy, so I'm reporting it.
Everything is correct. It's just the way russians speak. When they ask a question russians speed up the end of the question like in the example
I understand that, but the audio file seems to be a bit off. The pitch is distorted in such a way that seems more akin to the audio file being sped up, not as is with the inflection of normal speech. I could be wrong, though.
So everybody knows, ты is used informally ex. a friend you already know while вы is used to speak with strangers/acquaintances.
This is impossible to pronounce or the audio just makes it impossible lmao
Imagine you're being stabbed in the stomach and make a deep throaty sound. (Sorry that it's graphic but it should work)
try to say it like if you are playing with a little baby and you say: ťi ťi ťi ťi ťi who is this little guy! or try to say it while you have a lot of saliva in your mouth... I really want to explain to you how to use your tounge properly ( i know your problem because I speak Hungarian and Slovak and we use a lot of words like this one ) but my English is not really good. Sorry if i did not help you anything... :(
Hmmm, I really appreciate your effort and your time but I'm afraid the only result is that I feel like a fool spitting all over my computer! ahahahah!! Besides the joke, really, I don't get it, as there are many ways to say t'i t'i depending exactly on where you put your tongue... Thanks anyway, I will give you a lingot for you kind help!
The way my Russian friend pronounced it (as much as I remember) was similar to a mix between the ti in "tip" and a teh sound in temporary. Online, the speakers I heard sounded more like a tee sound.
take some water in your mouth and try to say “t'i”, also you need to move a little bit your tongue out from teeth, deeper inside (just a bit) and most important - “т”sound must be hard, not soft. hope you will make it :)
Tried this. Choked and spat water all over myself in a coughing fit. Am i russian now?
In our keyboard 'ы' is 'õ'. Try to pronounce estonian words with 'õ', like 'õun' which means 'apple' or 'õlg' which means 'shoulder'. Maybe it helps
Say the vowel [u] now do not move your lips or your tongue and try to say [i] like that
I think that when you say "where are you?", you say it in a more formal way, like "где вы?"
You wouldn't really say that if you are talking to a close friend or family member though. Otherwise it'd be kinda weird
Im using the app on my phone and finding it quite poor at teaching the alphabet . Might need to get some alpgabet nemnory apps or something .
Agreed, I never have to think for the first word as its always obvious. Not actually learning the word that way, just the app.
The audio file for this needs to be assiste adjusted. I can't make out the pronunciation.
Selecting the words individually I hear "Vi-di-ya" & "Teh" but together I hear "Gidyateh"...
Also can we can we get some 320kbps audio files instead of 128kbps? -_-
I love the app, but getting pronunciation from it gets really difficult when the audio is fuzzy.
As far as I've understood this far, it might be 'you', 'you are' and 'are you', since Russian seems to lack the verb 'to be' (which I find mind-blowing).
That is right :) and yep as a person who grew up speaking Russian and English, I still find that really weird
Gdeh (the "eh" is pronounced like the "ai" part in "air") tih (the "t" sound is kind of a throaty sound, a mix of the english letters t and d). This may seem complicated right now, but you'll get the hang of it :)
