This is great, riddles are a really fun thing to learn. I'm glad to see this included.

I find that music and riddles etc. are really great for learning vocabulary, because I can remember them SUPER easy.

For example, I know a song that one of my Russian friends sent me that's in Russian, and I remember almost the entire thing.

А может быт забудем всё, и сбежим

У нас одна любов и одна только жизнь

А может быт забудем всё, и сбежим - навсегда

Here's the song, if anybody is interested. It's not everybody's cup of tea, but I think it's really, really, really addicting haha. The band is actually Ukrainian though.

Forgive the weird music video haha.

А может быть забудем всё и сбежим
У нас одна любовь и одна только жизнь
А может быть забудем всё и сбежим - навсегда

Живёт у нас (русских) только "кто", а не "что". "Что", то есть неодушевленный объект (по-русски) жить не может. Поэтому перевел вопрос "КТО живет без языка, но разговаривает?" Однако этот вариант с "КТО" посчитали ошибочным. Но именно он, на самом деле, единственно правильный. Даже если в ответе на него будет потом неодушевленный предмет (радио, в данном случае). Поэтому и послал report
