"Bears eat everything."
Translation:Медведи едят всё.
Is the difference between едят and ест just that one refers to a plural subject and the other is singular?
Yes, go here and expand the section that says 'conjugations': https://en.wiktionary.org/w/index.php?title=есть&oldid=36585563
Would "Медведи всё едят" be wrong? I thought the sentence order didn't make much of a difference.
In general, Duolingo wants neutral word order. But in Russian, you will often find the pronoun before the verb if the pronoun is in some way the object of the verb (ie. Медведи всё едят is definitely fine)
всё=everything; все = plurals for the pronoun "весь" (all, the whole of), it uses with the nouns as adjective( все медведи) or все=everyone, it depends on context
So i can easily read what the sentence is saying but I cant understand when i listen to it. Does anyone have good tips???!!!
For Russian->English exercises try listening to the sentences before you ever read them and pick out as many words as you can. Do this for every sentence, but probably not more than once or twice per sentence otherwise you'll be in Duolingo all day. I end up having to squint a bit so I can find the play button, but won't be tempted to read the sentence.
Mouse over individual words to have the computer repeat them slowly
Attempt English->Russian exercises either in your head, or out loud, before you even start to type, select words, or pick the appropriate sentence (depending on the exact exercise).
While typing is important, try using the speech-to-text feature of your phone/computer for SOME English->Russian exercises
There are several Russian language learning youtube channels which are entirely in Russian with English or Russian subs, Natasha Speaks comes to mind
Here are 11 short stories with very slow accompanying audio http://www.russianforfree.com/texts.php
Watch more media... Masha and the Bear, and Silver Spoon (мажор?), are both on Netflix. Moskflim and Film.ua both have full length movies and TV shows on youtube. There are also a number of science shows: агрессивная среда, большой скачок, and эксперименты.
I got it wrong because I typed кушают instead of едят. Different words, same meaning. Is there a rule about this?
