I think it should be acceptable to say Mama, simply because some people do actually call their moms that outside of Russia. so it seems like a perfectly acceptable answer to me
I agree. Lots of people outside of Russia use "mama" instead of "mom". It should certainly be accepted. Especially since it's been accepting "mama" for all the other questions I've received so far. There's no reason for it to randomly stop accepting it now.
Dobryi den is literally good day, however it is not natural to say "good day" in English! Hello should also be considered correct in my opinion....
Imagine "hello" being accepted for "добрый день" - we'll have people asking about the difference between "добрый день" and "здравствуйте" - why are there two words for "hello"?
"Good afternoon" may not be the most common greeting in English, but it exists. I don't think "hello" should be accepted for "добрый день".
yes, but in Russian "Добрый день" means "hello" and it could be used even at evening (or morning) just to say hello. (Belive me - I'm native speaker)
"Good day" is, too, natural English. People might not really use it where you're from, but that doesn't make it unnatural. Lots of people use "good day."
I think ' Mom ' is only an American thing ( not sure about Canada ). British and Australian/New Zealand usage would be ' Mum '. According to Wiktionary, in New England it's also pronounced ' mum ', even if spelt ' mom '.
I got flunked for saying "mama" and not "mom". Is there a difference in russian?
Got marked wrong for "dobre dien" as opposed to "dobryi den'". That seems a little silly.
I typed "good morning" and it says "good afternoon". I don't really consider it as a mistake :|
Good morning = Доброе утро
Good afternoon = Добрый день
Definitely a difference.
Ok, thank you. I was a little confused because of no difference in my native language. Thanks again.
have a good day,mom here?.what is the differences between correct answer,i dont get it?
I put "Good day, is your mother here?" it corrected me "Good day, is my mother here?" but from my point of view it's not clear at all about who's mother are we talking about.
