If 'a' is a contrasting 'and' it should accept using 'while' as well here
Can "и" be used here instead of "а" as well?
No.'а' is used here for contrast places
...and и is used for similarity between the two, e.g. ‘Мама здесь и папа тоже.’
This is my German Shepherd Dog's frustration every day...
So typical for the modern family...
Dad is over there not accepted?
Why is 'а' used instead of 'и'? And are they interchangeable? Thanks!
«а» is used to show contrast: «Я танцую, а ты, не»; on the other hand, «и» is used to show similarity: «Ты ешь и пьёшь».
Mum is also mom in real English.
Mom is hereeee father is thereee, can I make it any more obvious? Lalala
For some reason I got an Avril Lavigne flashback
Are they teaching Russian, or American (why isn't "Mum" fully accepted, but only as a typo)?
It's accepted other places, but since the course developers are usually American, it helps to report it.
should the voice say "там" like it's saying "тамУ" ?
The pronunciation sounds fine to me, I don't hear тамУ, just там.
Can this not be translated as "but"? Mom is here but dad is there? If it's "contrasting," why would it necessarily translate as "and"?
I would say yes? I really don't know tho..?
It's accepted now 2020/02/23.
Sorry, but Dad is used as a proper noun here and should be capitalised !
you CANNOT say "mom" and "dad" which is American SLANG!
You should say "Mother" and "Father" or al least "Mummy" and "Daddy"
"Mom" and "Dad" is really vulgar! Educated people do not say that!!!
Please do something about the zdes' and then a space, and then say it is not right. And then do not say stop the clutter. You make the mistakes!
It sounds like she is saying "mama is this, a papadom" XD
