Yes, but I can understand the black dude and he is trying to entertain, and succeeds. Cant say that about most Russian men I have met.

She proposes a fluid way to learn conversational Russian which I feel like makes a lot of sense: focus on phrases and proper pronunciation first. Worry about individual words, the how/wen/ and why of grammar, and other technical details like alphabet and spelling later.

If you think about it, this is how we naturally learn our first language in early development. You hear your parents and people around you talking and you start repeating things that you hear a lot. You understanding and experience with the language grows the more you hear and the more you speak.

She is a nice enough girl and I have used her channel. But she is too westernized and talks too much for my taste. Try Russian plus on youtube. That dude is way more interesting and cool. I have learned faster with him.




Я смотрел многие её видеоклипов, и они очень хорошие. Но боже, это иногда сложно учить для меня из-за огромные сиськи еёtard

That was my recurring through when I was in Ukraine, if I ever wifed a girl I wouldn't worry about teeth so much. I knew some girls who didn't like to smile because of their teeth.

Quite a few Central Asian/ 'Stan girls have gold teeth in front; it can be a little disconcerting when they first smile at you.

Dental health was not one of the Soviet Union's strong points.
Flashcards arrived today, pretty stoked. I know not to do over do them but it is convenient to flip through a few when there is down time.

I listen to Russian in the car and the gym. Plus doing my homework and my three hours a week on skype with my tutor. I am started to hear it better but far away from any sort of fluency.

I notice that I can't recall the word in Russian but know the meaning when I hear it in Russian. Which is logical, because many people say they understand a language better than they can say it.

Just wondering if anyone has come across a technique to help recall the words better?

Thanks!

Something I do, which is basically the tldr of this video, is associating the word with something strange and memorable. Creating a memory around the world.
This could be creating a story around the word.
This may seem time consuming, but it was a big help for me.

For example, Russian word: даст
this means to give in the future perfective tense. but it is also the slang for 'to give consent' (for sex).
This is quite a random connotation that will make it easier to remember.





Let's expand on this with the song Alyona dast:
Take one line for example
Она обожает секс (Let's say here you are learning the word обожать\to adore)
Well you will always remember that Alyona adores/obozhaet sex.
Hope you find it useful.
And remember to write the word down in a notebook and refer back to it occaisionally to keep it in your head.
That is an awesome trick but I guess I am watching a lot of videos then Big Grin

Try and bring the words up your working on remembering for the day in the conversation with your russian speaking friend/girlfriend/skype partner. Once you get used to using the words in the conversation, which is hopefully aided by using the random connotation that you associate the word with, it will stick in your head.

Rinse and repeat and your vocabulary will improve. That's the key, keep getting use to using the words in conversation.
If you forget some word, probably you don't have to use it much in an ordinary conversation anyway and it wasn't that worth knowing.
FYI Guys,

Looks like Duolingo has released the English to Russian language abilities. I think as of right now, the program is not available through their mobile app yet.

Been Really trying to hammer down the language myself.

Could you please give an example sentance or two with ДАСТ?

The song says 'Alona dast' which I presume means 'Alona puts out'.

Could I therefore say to a girl something like 'Ну что Наташа, твоя подруга даст или нет?' or 'Я здесь искать девушка которая даст'.

Is that the correct use of the term?

Hey Linguarian,
I'm not a native speaker so I can't clarify 100% but i would say that this is a slang word from what my friend said, so you should probably not say it really monotonely so that someone would expect you to continue with "to give something else" because it really is just implied that it has another meaning from to give.

I think you should say it jokingly to imply you are using it in a jokey slang sense, unless your being really forward Big Grin
One thing I've noticed, and a lot of the Russian girls I've talked to have been from well to do families, and are воспитанный, is that they don't handle casual swearing that well.

Maybe you've talked to a wider range of girls, can you confirm this? They really look down on using some slang words and swearing, because quite often these words have stronger connotations in Russian.

I got in contact with my Russian friend, who said, first sentence is fine, second second sentence could be: Я здесь ищу девушку которая даёт.

Не переживай, Они поимут тебя в крайнем случае. Это круто что ты на самом деле сказал слов с девушкой Youtheman
the first sentence is grammatically correct but coarse and you have better either have paid Natasha or fucked her silly and are prompting her to get you two a threesome. the 369's version of the second sentence is correct, but also coarse. aaaaaaaand

DAST also mean Hit, so "Schas kak DAM" means approximately "I'm about to dish you some out"
...
For grammar, I am finding this site pretty helpful and straightforward.

Listen and repeat indeed

You can also use that verb when you want another drink: Повторите пожалуйста (repeat please)
what does distitvna mean? sounds like dis-teet-vna

Duolingo kind of jumps right into it. I'd suggest you use some other app to learn the alphabet before you start Duo.
I learned Russian a few years ago during university for a few semesters and recently began to tackle it again. I remember when I learned Eglish and Spanish in school, listening to English/Spanish music and watching movies helped me tremendously (my native language is German) I recently checked out some Russian music and want to get into it to help me learn the language.
For a general overview, you can check out this Wiki page to check out some Russian bands:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Russia

I checked out some "old school" Russian bands from the 1970s and 1980s like Kino, Aquarium, and Machina Vremeni so far.
Maybe somebody can recommend some good Russian-language movies ?

It sounds close enough to "действительно": really, actually.
Checking in to see if others are building “memory palaces” when studying Russian vocab.

I ask, because I’m almost done with the book, "Moonwalking With Einstein." (http://www.amazon.com/Moonwalking-Einste...bc?ie=UTF8

The idea of building memory palaces to store information seems interesting, but also really complicated and laborious when applying it to foreign languages. This is especially true when trying to take on syllabic words like: путешествовать. Right now, I’m thinking of creating a memory palace for each root, and also having standard images for major prefixes. But I've had limited success to date.

Anyone else using these methods? Any positive results to report back?

I am interested in this also. I am really trying to find movies with English subtitles. I am guessing that by hearing the words and getting an idea of what is said will help me hear/recognize it faster and better than without the subtitles. I would be guessing then at what was going on.
