    A couple of sentences

    Его часы стоят $60.000.

    He trains often. He likes judo.
    Он тренирует часто. Он любит judo.

    He has a black belt.
    Он имеет черный пояс.

    He started judo when he was 13 years old.
    Он начал judo когда он был 13 лет старого.

    Please correct my rotten Russian sentences. I did it with the help of dictionaries, some of my books and online translation support.

    Его часы стоят шестьдесят тысяча доллоров.

    He likes judo.
    Maybe you can say "Ему нравится дзюдо."

    Можно и так, но и вариант "он любит дзюдо" - тоже совершенно нормален.

    What is wrong with the following?

    Tы красивейши.

    In English, you are beautiful but in Russian there is a tacit understanding about the verb 'are'.

    Она красива. [ She is beautiful.]

    Tы очень красивы. [ You are very beautiful.]
