Можете, пожалуйста, меня сказать (сказать для мена?) какая разница между словом здесь а словом тут? И извините мой русский.

"Можете, пожалуйста, мне сказать какая разница между словом здесь и словом тут?" is the correct way to say it :)

"Тут" and "здесь" are interchangeable and they both mean 'here'. "Тут" is just slightly more colloquial.

In this case, does the letter Х sound like К?

I hear the X as it is supposed to be, that throat clearing, very ugly sound.

The word for good "хорошо" is written as "Khorosho" is latin script, which shows us learners that the "X" sound in Russian sounds similar to a "K".

Could it be translated as "No architect lives here"?

i just spent 5 minutes trying to spell "Architect-or" in english. facepalm

A lot of duo courses teach this word and I can no longer spell it in English without thinking about it.

Are there any other word orders that would be more normal? I was under the impression that здесь doesn't usually go at the end.

Architecture doesn't live here why not

it is very difficult and sometimes impossible to hear the 'не' in these sentences

Would Architector be acceptable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BenYoung84

No, that word is incorrect in modern English.

I wrote the architect is not living here but it was not accepted. Isn't it the exact same thing???
