Russian for beginners

Hello, Duolingo Citizens! Did you just start learning Russian language, and do you need help? If you want, you can ask me for some advice (not answers, unless you keep making mistakes). I am really fluent in Russian language! I hope I am helping! TheAmericanOwl (I can only help beginners, unfortunately.)

You need to move this post to the Russian forum. Don't delete it and create a new one, just click edit, and change the topic from Duolingo to Russian.

Your English is good, but I hope to help with a few basic errors. :)

Also, I wouldn't say "I am really fluent in the Russian Language". You are either fluent or you aren't, therefor I would use "I am fluent in the Russian Language."

Hello, VickyB582329! Pronounce what? Letters ж or й or other letters? TheAmericanOwl

https://www.duolingo.com/VickyB582329

also with ы ш щ.

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/TDyachenko

Hello, VickyB582329!

ж - Kind of like 'sh' sound, only 'zh'.

й - When reading Russian words, the letter Й sounds similar to "y" in "yellow" if it's the first letter in a word (йога, йод). If the letter Й is in the end of a word it sounds like "y" in "may" (мой, другой).

ы - Try to invest some time in learning it and differentiating from other sounds. To get Russian sound ы, you should place your tongue in the position right between the positions of English sounds i in kit and u in sugar. Then make a new sound of ы. Note that this sound is different form the English i in bit.

ш/щ - Russian Ш is almost the same as english SH. There are no sound as Щ in English. But you can stretch out english СH ( Ch-h-h-h-h... ) So, beginning of this stretched sound will sound like standard CH, but the ending will sound like russian Щ. Note the position of you tongue while making these sounds. In case of SH your tongue is above, but in case of CH your tongue is at the bottom. Then repeat sound SH but hold your tongue in position of CH and then practice, practice and more and more and more... I think the position of the tongue is the main difference of these sounds. I think so, but I am not sure.

I hope I helped! TheAmericanOwl
