  5. "Good evening."

"Good evening."

Translation:Добрый вечер.

November 11, 2015



why is вечер is добрый and утро is доброе? why aren't they the same word? or what is the rule?


вечер is a masculine noun and утро is neutral. добрыи and доброе are the masculine and neutral versions of the adjective good.


Thanks for the clarification.


Is there also a female version of доброе ? If yes where would it be used


Yes, добрая. For example, good woman-добрая женщина.


Spelling a russia words in latin letters is bad in this game by my opinion


Download the Россия keyboard then bub!


Yes i use russia letter


It's especially hard because different languages can modify the latin script while the Cyrillic Script forces a language to be phonetic. Most languages that use latin script aren't entirely phonetic. This means you have more give as opposed to my language Bulgarian.


Спокойной means good too, because спокойной ночи means good night. But спокойной вечер is wrong? Why?


Спокойной actually means "calm" rather than "good". But in English, we do not routinely wish one another a "calm night" - we would only say such a thing if we anticipate a serious risk of the night NOT being calm e.g. during a war. So "Calm night" would not be a suitable translation for what is simply a routine phrase on parting. It is used in the same way that we say "Good night" in English. So that is the appropriate translation.


Okay, but the question is why "спокойней вечер" isn't correct. Do you happen to know why?


Because this app is trying to have you make sense when you speak russian not what makes sense when you are translating from english


I can not find the way to use the Russian alphabet that's why I can't write the answer


On Anroid, you can easily download a russian keyboard. Maybe that works


On Android, you can set it up in the keyboard section of settings on your phone/tablet. On a Windows PC, control panel > region > keyboard settings or something like that. No need to download anything. Further, on PC, on-screen keyboard helps learn the key placement.


Yes, it's easy. Add русский in your keyboard settings.


me as well, I guess as Russian is still in Beta, we have to expect these problems


I get the same problem to


Добрый and доброе sounds the same to me is there any difference in pronunciation for you native russians here? Im having lots of trouble with the sound of ы which doesnt exist in french( my native language)


For some reason in this word I can not write the second last letter of the first word (which looks like an I) it does not exsist on my Key board


ь and ы are actually different letters. So ы is a single letter, which is why you can't find the I part. It doesn't exist


I had the same confusion, but it's just ы, home row, second from the left.


What time of the day will one start saying добрый вечер? What about ночи? At what time can I say доброй ночи? Can it be used for saying hello in arrival late at night or is it for saying goodbye at night when leaving?


Hello could you put Russian letters to click on, into quests where you have to write in azbuka. I dont have Russian keyboard so I cant do these quests. Sorry for my English.


Hey there! If you are using an Android smartphone, just keep pressing your space bar. You should see a list of the keyboards you are using, pkus the keybord button for your keyboards settings; I am not sure if for iOS is different. I hope I was helpful


When is considered evening in Russia?


I haven't russian key board to write it


Download one, its pretty easy on most phones. Took me literally two minutes.


If anyone doesnt have a Russian keyboard android. Simplt click the top lwft button on your keyboard. Open settings and then languages and choose russian.


Learning russian is slightly easier now because i am serbian


I have a keyboard that only types English characters.


I have not the russian letters


I suggest downloading SwiftKey keyboard to use Russian keyboard. It has better predictions and better custumized


I not find the "I" in russian


"I" in Russian is "и", you are looking for a single letter, "ы", home row, second from the left.
