    Hi Nika! Great video! Very helpful!
    One question: for “she should learn Chinese language”, why the “learn” here is выучить but not учить? What’s the difference between these two words?

  • Stephen Robey

    You should not walk so lately is a meaningless expression in English. I have no idea what it is intended to convey. It appears to be an English sentence but in fact it reads like a piece of nonsense in the manner of the red queen in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Did you fall down a rabbit hole?

  • Stephen Robey
    Stephen Robey 2 years ago

    The correct translation in English is "you should not smoke". Why not assemble a panel of native English speakers to eliminate elementary mistakes, which currently undermine the credibility of the presentations. Such basic errors of the translation give an impression of amateurism. This is a pity because generally the videos offer good quality content and are well presented. Best wishes.

      RU-LAND CLUB  2 years ago +1

      Look, I was filming 10 lessons during one day, and just exidently said lately instead late, I am very sorry about it, but I do believe that you still could understand it. TVclip is not my main work, I have a LOT of work but it. "I'm just a Human, I make mistakes " perfect song of Rag’n’Bone Man :)
      If my English is too awful for you, I do not make you to watch my lessons. I could explain everything just in Russian
      but I am trying to do it in foreign language still.

      Regarding my Spanish, I stopped learning it, because I do not have time for it at all. Hope to resume in future))

    • Stephen Robey

      Qué tal su español? Octubre 2015 nos dijo que vayas empecer con esta idioma, Nika. Me digan que es fácil pero no es verdad perquè il subjentivo es bastante difícil, no te parece? Yo estudié castellano y catalán también. Yo prefiero catalán perquè es muy parecido al Occitan o Provençal. Me gusta mucho el periodo de les trobadors y la reina Elionor d'Aquitaine. Besos d'Inghlaterra.

    • Stephen Robey

      Thanks for your correction. However you have not replied to my second comment about "You should not walk so lately". What on earth is going on there. It's nonsense in English, I must insist you refer to a competent authority in English usage. What about my suggestion of empaneling suitably qualified reviewers. If they fail to respond to your deadline then tant pis. Publish and be damned. Unfortunately you are repeatedly undermining your own credibility with solecisms and howlers that make one cringe. Having said that I still think your videos have much merit and help drag me from the depth of my ignorance of the wonderful Russian language, which I wanted to learn from the days of the Sputnik when no human had escaped earth's bonds. A poor dog was the sacrifice. Love from Sheffield.

      I am afraid that "you should not smoke" is not correct translation for this sentence. Перестать - literally means "to STOP", so even if sounds weird in English it doesn't mean that it is wrong. Russian and English have different sentense structure and different linguistic picture of the word, so if I offer this translation, it is always because of some certain reason.
      You should not smoke in Russian will sound like: тебе не следует курить.

      My pleasure! Btw I meant to say: you said "поговорить" (to have a talk, once off), when you should say "говорить" (to talk in general, to speak).

      Not entirely sure what Nika will have to say, but here's my 2 cents:
      Мне следует пойти в спортзал. This means: I should go the the gym (once only). Мне следует ходить в спортзал. This means: I should go to the gym (habitually).
      Ему не следует так много говорить. Here you should say "поговорить" which means to talk a bit, to have a talk, one time. I changed the word order a little to sound more natural.
      Ей не следует так быстро ездить на машине. - She shouldn't drive so fast. Notice that Russians say "ездить НА машине", not just "ездить машину". I also changed the word order here a bit.
