That's something really hard to say out loud. I have to practice many times in order to get it right xD
I know what you mean, some of the longer words I look at and get a little sad
It took me a while to say 'фильм для взрослых'. I was like 'feelm dlyavzrjxsgjjbjbbb'..
Thank you! I thought I would never be able to pronounce "фильм для взрослых" without sounding like I hat peanut butter in my mouth. lol :-)
Can считать be used like, on the line of: "You can always COUNT on me"?
Both would require a noun (accusative) as an object, not a verb (cчитать). Moreover, "учит + verb (infinitive)" means "teaches ...", not "learns ...".
And finally, "изучает"="studies" is a more formal word (in both languages), not sure I would ever use it for a five-year old.
No. You study something (a noun). You can also study to become a pilot, but in such a use "to + verb" describe the goal of you study (для того, чтобы ...), not the action you are learning.
Vanya stadies to become the person who knows how to count to five. So good?
As a sentence - almost OK (the person → a person, there is more than one person possessing such skills; who know → who knows), as a translation of the original - not really.
И вдобавок, "So good?"="Так хорошо?" в значении "Настолько хорошо?", а вовсе не в том значении, в котором вы это использовали. В этом значении это будет "Is this/that good?"
