lol yeah I put "Could you tell me again" since it is more polite, but it rejected it...
Not exactly sure, but I think if you wanted to say "Could you tell me again," then you would put "Можете скажите ещё раз."
Можете сказать ещё раз :)
But that sounds also quite rude :) It's better to say "Скажите еще раз, пожалуйста..." or even "не могли бы вы сказать еще раз..." (couldn't you tell me again...)
I tried this one, and it was accepted. "Skazhite eshchte raz, vy Ivan?"
I had problems with letter "Щ". But as I did my small google research, Щ (shcha) can be pronounced as "sh", same as "shch" in some other dialects.
Ещё раз can mean both one more time and again. Ещё by itself can mean more or, in some cases, it means still or yet (as in «He hasn't finished working yet» – «Он ещё не закончил работать»). Раз means once or one and sometimes people count saying «Раз, два, три...» instead of «Один, два, три...». It can also mean since, for example, «Раз уж ты здесь...» – «Since you're here...». So, ещё раз means something like once more, one more time or again.
What am I to do?! I haven't got cirilic alphabet and I cannot type right answers even if I know them. I does not allow me to finish the exercises. Extremely frustrating....
Alicja941535, have you solved your problem with alphabets? If not, tell us what device and what OS you are using, so you can get help
I got the same problem. I use a Dell notebook, with Debian 8 GNU Linux as operating system, and Firefox browser. I tried to start "English-to-Russian" but I do not know how to enter Cyrillic characters. An on-screen keyboard would be great.
If you use Gnome desktop, just install the Russian keyboard mapping. Keyboard mappings can be installed as a Region & Language setting, not a keyboard setting. After that in the upper right corner an icon will appear where you can select your keyboard. This icon has a little menu as well which allows you to display the keyboard mapping. Keyboard layout can also be switched using Super+Space (Super is usually the right Win-key). Transparent Cyrillic keyboard stickers are also great.
i dont know if i can name an app here. but i use iqqi app for cyrillic characters. i recoment it
i wrote "tell me again, are you Ivan?!" it just makes it more dramatic :)
how do you transliterate that i n english ? I tried all possible combinations and it is always wrong ! thanks for your help. and please don't tell me to install the Cyrillic alphabet. I have no idea how to do it even if you give me all the links. I don't understand Technics! I am 80 and was never a technician of any kind.
Why do they use both "ешё" and "раз"? Can't you just use one of the two words? They both mean "again" so why do they use both of the words in the sentence? Is it just me that doesn't understand this?!!!
actually "tell me.." should be translated as "скажите мне" according to what we were tought by our Russian teacher
в переводе английским по белому присутствует слово "me" Tell me again, are you Ivan? Так с какого места той самой сивой кобылы вы его достали если его нет в русском переводе "Скажите ещё раз, вы Иван?". Я за глупую дословность на этом сайте. Она здесь везде и все модераторы ею брызжат.
