Would this be completely wrong? "читай это когда у тебя время"

September 16, 2016


First of all, "читай это, когда у тебя будет время", you forgot to translate "have".

No, it is not wrong. But your choice is different.

The choice from the task has a meaning "to read something from the beginning to the end" (because of the perfective "прочитай").

Your choice has a meaning (some kind of) "to read for a while". Your choice implies that the book is realy huge, that it has a lot of information, so your interlocutor has to spend a lot of time to read it. Or, another meaning is that the conversation is about regular mass media, for example "here is a newspaper, it is published once a week, I want you to read this".

So in Russian there is a difference but, as in English is not, both should be accepted

Do you have to use будет here to match the future implied by the perfective прочитай?

March 29, 2016


No. This choice has the word "будет" because of the word "when" ("когда") that implies that the interlocutor currently doesn't have the time.

Why, прочитайте это когда у Вас будет время, is not accepted?

November 19, 2016


Is this also possible: Прочитайте это, когда у вас будет время.

what's wrong with "прочитай это когда у вас будет время" ?

July 6, 2017


If you use the polite/plural form "вас" in the second part of this sentence, you should also use this form in the first part:

Прочитайте это, когда у вас будет время.

Почему нельзя:"Читай это, когда у тебя есть время"??? http://images.vfl.ru/ii/1519757509/cb115f7d/20758969.jpg

Уважаемые модераторы, во всплывающей подсказке ошибка в слове "когда", исправьте, пожалуйста.
