The current "solution" of "she reads faster than me" is incorrect English.
We're describing an action, not a noun, so we need an adverbial construction in the English (more quickly), not an adjective (faster, quicker).
Presently, the actual correct answer is not yet accepted. It needs adding, and ideally, the incorrect answer removing from the database.
Additionally, since we're describing an action that's more active than merely "being", English strictly speaking requires "...than I", not "...than me" in this context (exactly the same as the Russian) - although probably best to accept both, as "...than me" is in very common usage despite being grammatically questionable at best.
Well, it's certainly widely used as such in the US, not so much here (UK). Makes sense that it has made its way into even our dictionaries by now, something that had hitherto escaped my notice.
That said, the other forms (such as "more quickly") still need adding, of course, or else a lot of British learners of Russian are going to be quite frustrated trying to remember the preferred modern/American way of saying things.
"[...] a lot of British learners of Russian are going to be quite frustrated trying to remember the preferred modern/American way of saying things."
Simply look at it as an opportunity to learn two languages at the same time!
I mean, you're already learning 16, what's one more?
I am from the UK and I would say that faster is fine, I have always used it as such.
Also there are arguments that 'than' can act as a preposition as well as a conjunction, making 'than me' also correct. Given that this is not really a closed case I don't think English 'strictly' requires 'than I'.
Americans speak the worst English of all English-speaking countries in the world. I am one, and very fortunate to have received an education elsewhere.
"Than I..." is the correct response here. Also, it should be "more quickly" as opposed to "faster". Since the administrator of the site wishes to be so biased with the correct responses at times, and other times less so, then there is a need to be as accurate as possible.
