    The circuit training

    Я должен обучить в гимнастике 3 раза в неделю.

    Я должен сделать кругооборот, обучающий 3 раза в неделю в гимнастике.


    I have translated the following sentences. I have a smattering of Russian. People go to gyms and train. I am doing circuit training.
    Could you correct my Russian sentences?
    [I must do circuit training 3 times a week at the gym.]

    Thanks Friendy for the speedy reply. I am studying Russian; I am just a beginner. My teacher is from Russia. Her name is Tatiana.

    It seems you are an ABBA fan. I like ABBA too. I live in Sweden. They are no longer united. l live in Stockholm. They too live in Stockholm. I know they are in disarray.

    By the way, I have a minor question.

    ....в спортзале

    Why can't it be '' HA спортзале'' ?

    because it's inside the gym, HA спортзале would mean on the roof of the gym

    You have written incorrect Swedish. What did you want to write?

    Friendy

    So the Russian prepositions are tricky.

    My teacher, Tatiana, told me another word for circuit training. I wrote it down. I just combed my book to find it. I can't find it.

    Oh yes, that's true

    Was it "круговая тренировка"? I think it sounds even more Russian.

    Prepositions are tricky in EVERY language.

    I am comfortable with them in English.


    I am siitting in a chair.

    I am sitting on a bench.

    I know the reason for having two different prepositions here. How do you distinguish it in Russian?

    Usually the bench doesn't have something to rest your body or arms. So it is 'on' the bench. Similary you sit or stand on the floor.

    When it comes to a chair, you usually find something to rest your body and arms. So you use 'in' for a chair.

    Does the Russian have two prepostions for the chair and the bench?

    You can say "I am sitting on a chair".

    But you cannot say "I am sitting in a bench".

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Я сижу на стуле.
    Я сижу на скамье.

    It's because you sit on some surface in Russian.

    Trickiness is also here, when we comapre two languages:

    Я сижу на дереве.
    I sit in the tree.

    You could say I am sitting in a bench provided that the bench has some parts to rest your body. Today such benches are common in parks. So you could say I am sitting in a bench.

    i wouldn't say that I am sitting on a chair.

    Now I am writing here. I am sitting in a chair and writing. I have an armed-chair. I find it is very difficult to say that I am sitting on a chair. I am sure there are people to say that I am sitting on a chair.

    In Russian it's the same:
    Я сижу в(на) кресле
    Я сижу на скамейке (you can't say в here)

    на=on the surface of smth
    в= inside smth
    of course in some cases you just have to memorise

    So Russian is like Swedish. Swedish uses the preposition ' p

    Well, "am" is not a prepositon, Gorky. It's the first person singular of the present tense of the verb "to be".

    It's not necessarily "cooked in", as you say. Я сижу can be non-continous too.

    But wasn't Gorky talking about an armchair? Hmm...is the preposition for sitting in an armchair - кресло - the same as for стул in Russian? I don't think so, but I can't remember.
    P.S. - Исправление ошибок в моих текстах на русском всегда приветствуется

    I almost always would say "I am sitting on a chair". I do hear "in a chair" often. I just don't say it.

    "Sitting in a bench". I haven't heard this, I don't think. I don't like it. Remember it's difficult to apply rigid rules to languages.
