да это я еще давно, кажись, до Нового Года еще на каком то сайте нарыл, все забывал запостить. Там еще брошюра о "Замечательном отдыхе в Турции" была, но только там Турция везде почему-то как Индюк фигурировала :? Щя не могу найти картинку- у меня на компе бардак. :roll:

ok, the new exercise (ahem... 12 exercises)

http://fireyez.unilang.org/russian_foru ... tening.exe

it works like those mini exercises posted on the first page of this thread, anyways there are instructions in that application so you can read them if you need them.

native speakers are also welcome to test the thing, it will improve your horrible pronunciation :wink:

oh, and please do enjoy the opening music - that's sort of a russian folk song from the stone age disco, sounded funny to me.

It's been tested by Abavagada, and it works. hope it works for everyone here too.

good luck!

У меня тоже эти мульты в голове смешались, поэтому я точно не помню из какой именно части я брал эту мелодию, кажись из последней «Илья Муромец и Змей Горыныч».

Could? you make it sound like your not going to work at all. :lol:

No, ukrainian г sounds like our h. χ sounds more like russian х, only a little bit further to the back of your mouth.

Well, I probably will work, but just not in all these places at the same time. Or I might find a job still somewhere else...

Who cares if it was practical, it was fun ;) And no, I didn't smuggle, but I did learn a great deal about where to hide cigarettes if you want to smuggle them across the Ukrainian-Polish border. :lol:

Обкатала нормально - за полтора месяца уже 1200 намотала :D Гараж по московским меркам я бы сказала, что близко. Найти его можно если захотеть, мне так кажется, что половина народу свои тачки ставит под окнами, или на открытых стоянках, но никак не в гаражах. Раньше у всех были ракушки, а потом их просто начали сносить, как у нас обычно бывает без спросу, без суда и следствия, нормальных гаражей не так уж и много, большие проблемы с парковкой. в центре ввели паркоматы - хрень такая - пихаешь в нее денюжку и можешь ставить машину, а рядом дядьки злые ходят и наблюдают... Да и без этих ---матов за два часа 400 руб. сдирают, т.е. все парковки в центре под чьими-то крышами, я в центре только катаюсь поэтому...Даже страшно машину оставить, на штраф стоянку мигом отгонят :pissed:

Oh geez I didn’t know that could be age specific. All I know is a couple of words like dank je wel, hoe gaat het n a bunch of dirty words just in case I ever happen to go to Holland. :ohwell:
En met jou?

Alles goed Image dankje *knufz*
No, ukrainian г sounds like our h. χ sounds more like russian х, only a little bit further to the back of your mouth.

Ever thought of adding your voiceclip to the Dutch page of Sounds of the World. There are some recordings but ppl read waaaaaay too fast and the sound quality is real bad, so I couldn’t even follow the words they were reading. You still have your mike, right? Now go record something, ya hear? :twisted:
Well, I probably will work, but just not in all these places at the same time. Or I might find a job still somewhere else...

Yeah right :roll: , and then start slaving from nine to five the whole year doing the same dull work, well may be not that dull in your case, I mean you’ll be processing kids, so that might be a bit more entertaining, but still same thing… lol kinda nice life perspective, eh? :lol: Nevermind me, it’s just been raining here for like four days in a row, and I tend to get depressed without sun rays. :(
Who cares if it was practical, it was fun

How come we never heard about it? Guess you could write a story about your experience in Ukraine and post it on one of the forums. You could write it in Russian or Ukrainian if you want to practice them or just in English. Ive been to Ukraine many times and I don’t think it differs a lot from Russia (well at least I never felt myself being in a foreign country when I was there), that’s why that would be interesting to know things that were totally weird for you, like ppl’s behavior, weird habits traditions, well everything. Well writing an article like that will take quite a time, but we’re not in haste. So what do you think? :wink:

Ага, в километрах пятидесяти от границы Владимирской области наверное :lol: .

У нас нормальные гаражи в основном на окраинах города, ракушки тоже сносят, хотя в некоторых местах их можно еще встретить, под окнами кажись самый распространенный вариант. Стоянки вообще что-то несуразное, деньги платить надо, но ответственности за угон они как правило не несут, бред… :evil: Мне повезло, у меня частный дом и гараж во дворе, не нужно ни на какую окраину ехать, на работе тоже стоянка нормальная, так как у нас население с нелегалами составляет около полтора миллиона особых проблем с местом на дорогах пока не наблюдается, пробки конечно встречаются каждый день, но самая большая в которой мне довелось стоять – 20 минут.
я в центре только катаюсь поэтому...

За город не пыталась выезжать? Как там кст за МСК дороги? Мляяяя у нас ужасть, хоть вертолет покупай. :roll: :evil:

Well, it's like you called me Вы, but in Dutch you would use that less often than in Russian and many people feel old when they are called "u". :)

The first recording is fast and of bad quality, but the second is better and slower. I don't think I'd manage to do it still slower. ;) Just listen to it a couple more times, and you'll get used to the speed.

I've had a link to my blog about what I was doing in Kiev in my signature for quite some time. But it's in Dutch, of course.

Oh, ik snap het now. I guess I'd also feel offended if I was called “Вы”. :roll: That reminded me about Indians. We had sort of an Indian delegation at work and they are a real polite bunch, them Indians. Polite is a wrong word actually. They are sooooo polite that it starts to annoy you as soon as you start talking to them. Like they kept calling me “Sir”, “yes, sir,” “no, sir”, “may I ask you sir” :x , geez, that was annoying, I told them to stop, but they never did. :roll:
The first recording is fast and of bad quality, but the second is better and slower. I don't think I'd manage to do it still slower. Just listen to it a couple more times, and you'll get used to the speed.

Yeah the second one’s a lot better. I listened to it about five times and finally could make out the words, but my problem is well i dunno why but i always thought the Dutch language had to sound sort of like German, and it doesn’t… that’s why it’s a bit shocking for me. Erm... besides i still can’t understand how “ui” is pronounced like in “uit”
So what do you suggest, if not working or studying?

Well, not working or studying sounds like paradise regained for me :ohwell:, but if that doesn’t appeal to you much, you could try having a bunch of kids. Triplets for a start. Should be fun 8)
I've had a link to my blog about what I was doing in Kiev in my signature for quite some time. But it's in Dutch, of course.

Hey i just checked your blog :D and yeah you were right it’s in Dutch :( . I speak german a little, that’s why I could get general idea like things about your Odessa trip, glorious plazkart journey :lol: , problems with the shower and good thing that you were staying in that apartment only two days. :lol: But still I couldn’t understand lots of things.
Heeey nice pix btw, and loooots of them. And yeah, you’re typical Dutch girl, blond n pale, but daaaaamn what are you trying to keep that model diet? :shock: YOU MUST EAT!!! :evil: :lol: jk :wink:
Well, maybe one day, if I have a lot of time and don't know what to do... but that day will probably not come very soon.

No problem, take you time. Meantime I’ll be trying to decipher your Dutch blog, but I guess I gotta learn some basic grammar first.

It's more the grammar and the words that are like German, but not so much the pronunciation.
And for ui, well, it's a diphtongue and the sound you start with is something like a in (British) English 'man' (although I'm not sure it's exactly that sound) and the sound you end with is like the ü in German.

If only eating more would help... but it doesn't. :( ;)

Daaaamn I wrote a long msg explaining how hard that ui sound for me was but ik pressed the wrong button en ik heb het gedeleted. Dammmn ImageImageImage

Well the problem is I could never pronounce that german ü right. Oh and I could never pronounce british ae either. That being said, I stand no chance of learning how to pronounce that ui sound. :( Well I tried, but I can’t pronounce it like a diphthong, I can’t help inserting the glottal stop between those sounds. :?

Thanks a bunch :wink: I’ve been reading it for quite a time, but most of the posting people there seem to be doing pretty well with the dutch language, so I thought if I start posting there too, I might develop inferiority complex :para: :lol: but thanks :wink:

Неа, во Владимирской области, в пяти километрах от Московской :D

пробки конечно встречаются каждый день, но самая большая в которой мне довелось стоять – 20 минут.

у нас с пробками просто беда, они постоянны и бесконечны, как объяснить пробку в 10 вечера в пятницу в сторону центра? Либо весь народ поехал тусить по клубам, либо? Но ведь тусить без алкоголя в пятницу вечером совсем неприкольно...в общем я отказываюсь понимать нашу московскую реальность, ну ее на фиг :lol:

я в центре только катаюсь поэтому...

За город не пыталась выезжать? Как там кст за МСК дороги? Мляяяя у нас ужасть, хоть вертолет покупай. :roll: :evil:
[/quote]
в центре я катаюсь, но стараюсь не парковаться, т.к. всегда выскакивает чел откуда ни возьмись и требует за час стоянки 200 руб. минимум. Поэтому я так сказать в центр особо не суюсь, больше по окраинам, по магазинам большим.
За город я выезжаю регулярно - до гаража и обратно :lol:
Трассы у нас кстати очень разные. По Рублевке ехать одно удовольствие - пробок нет, асфальт чудо, новенький такой, блестит, смотришь по сторонам, прям как будто по французской провинции едешь...
Новая Рига - тоже трасса хорошая, ей пророчат стать новой Рублевкой, может и переименуют :lol:
Все остальное - не взглянешь без слез. Под тяжестью фур асфальт деформируется, и получаются такие "волны", ехать мягко скажем, неудобно. Вечные выбоины, т.е. вроде дорогу чинят, но дочинить постоянно забывают и эти ямы приходится объезжать, а когда из заделывают, то все равно будешь объезжать, вместо ям появляются колдобины :(
Если честно, то я даже готова платить, только дайте хорошую дорогу! :twisted:

To pronounce that ü, just say и and then round your lips like when you say (Russian) у (don't move anything else, only your lips). That should be ü.
Instead of æ you could say Dutch/German long a or a schwa (or something in between), that will do too.
The only thing you have to do to get from ü to æ/long a/schwa, is rounding your lips and closing your jaws a bit more, and don't stop making a sound.
Good luck! :lol:

@Lada
Мдя, значит у вас там такой же головняк. Эт радует :lol:
Друган в Белоруссию года два назад на машине мотался, говорит там дороги платные, качество дорог на порядок выше, но мусоров на каждом километре понатыкано, так что особо не погоняешь, или может это они только к российским номерам неравнодушны были – страховки там всякие, он так и не понял что от него хотели.
Если честно, то я даже готова платить, только дайте хорошую дорогу!

Да только должен быть коэффициент, например если “ехаешь па Маскве” то дорожная пошлина должна быть в каком-то соотношении привязана к стоимости квадратного метра жилья в белокаменной. А вообще вашей кожаной кепке давно пора тарифы и на пешие прогулки установить, неча даром асфальт вытаптывать.

Кстати, чё эт у вас там за повелительное наклонение такое «Ехай!»? :lol: Че это выражение у вас действительно можно часто услышать? Колхозники. :tomato: :lol:

Good luck!

Yeah, easier said than done. :(
Done some grammar basics like personal pronouns and verb conjugation thingies and I’d been doing alright until I realized that despite the fact that I understand how grammar works I still can’t read anything at all. downloaded some mp3’s and that was the moment of frustration – I can’t make out about 50 percent of the sounds, much less imitate them. :( You guys are even worse than Danes. :evil: :evil: :evil: Guess I gotta download acouple of Dutch podcasts or audiobooks and listen to them non-stop for acouple of months before I finally start getting used to your sounds. Good thing though is that I haven’t started thinking of giving up yet. :lol:
They also once didn't know any Dutch at all.

Yeah but that’s still no reason why I should stop hating on them. :roll:

@Oleksij
you Russians eat way too much raw onions as for my taste. And eating salo with it, yuk... use some mustard instead.


We actually eat differently cooked food depending on what a person prefers. Some Russians prefer fried food, it can be more or less fried also depending on the taste. Other Russians may prefer stewed or steam cooked food to fried one. Otherwise somebody may like boiled! Everything depends on the taste. So you can't generalized the taste of Russian people in food. Simply not possible coz we are all different. Look , some Russian even prefer international cuisines like Italian, German, Hungarian, Czeque, Japanese, CHinese etc to RUssian one while others keep loving only Russian food.

By the way, once you are interested in such matters, here is a nice article about Russian food.
