    help with some translation

    hi! for my russian exam i have to write an essay about the things i see inside my room. can someone please translate this for me?

    I live in residence of UBC. I live with my roomate in my room. I have a study desk. I study there. I have a laptop with big speakers. I listen to music on it. My bed is very nice and comfortable. in the shelf, there are many russian, spanish, science books. i also have many pictures of my school and posters on the wall. i never study in the library. it is very quiet.

    If this is for your exam, shouldn't you be sitting down with the dictionaries and writing this for yourself?

    Besides, someone here could do it, but slip this in as a joke, though you might not find it funny when your essay comes back: Я не написал это. Некто из интернета написал это для меня.

    I'm sure people will help with words that you can't find in the dictionary, they have done so for me ; but since this is for an exam, you should build the sentences yourself.
    Поправляйте меня, пожалуйста!
    Я ещё изучаю русский.

    Yeah, you're really going to get help from us with that attitude. What the hell are you studying Russian for if you don't do any work or learn anything?

    I propose we ignore all of this guy's requests for help in the future.

    Oh, come on, Pravit, everyone can lose his temper. Who knows what circumstances make him ask for help. Besides, if he really didn't work at all he would post here much more often.

    And Ankitj2, I second Jasper's advice.
    But here's the translation:
    Я живу в общежитии университета Британской Колумбии (I assumed that UBC stands for University of British Columbia), в одной комнате с моим товарищем. У меня есть письменный стол, за которым я занимаюсь. У меня есть портативный компьютер с большими колонками. На нём я слушаю музыку. Моя кровать очень красивая и удобная. На полке много русских, испанских и научных книг. (but if you mean that all these books are science books then it should be: "На полке много научных книг на русском и испанском языках") На стене у меня также много фотографий моей школы и постеров. Я никогда не занимаюсь в библиотеке. Здесь (that is if you mean that it is quiet in your room, if you meant that it is quiet in the library then use "там") очень тихо.

    "также" here means "in addition", "besides", "moreover". Here it can be replaced by "ещё". "тоже" doesn't have this meaning. It's only used when a statement is made that something applies to some situation or person and then it is said that the same statement applies to some different situation or person. In this case "тоже" and "также" are usually interchangeable.
    Examples:
    -Сегодня я еду в деревню.
    -Я тоже (еду в деревню).

    Когда идёт дождь, я всегда остаюсь дома. И когда идёт снег тоже.

    Simpel ezelsbruggetje (that's the disadvantage of learning a language from English): Также=bovendien, тоже=ook. Wanneer je ook maar de 'ook' door 'bovendien' kan vervangen, moet je также gebruiken.

    Nowadays, yes. But I agree that "плакат" sounds better here.

    Maybe you should read his posts in this thread, because he details all of his terrible circumstances. Being a lazy cheat and not doing the exam himself, perhaps? But I suppose if he relies on forum members to do the work for him, he won't get much out of classes he's paying money for anyway. I wouldn't mind so much if he at least tried to write his own thing and then had it corrected, but it kind of irks me to think of some lazy guy looking at an exam and scratching his head, then thinking "Oh! I know! I'll just get those nice Russians to do it for me!"

    Let's only hope that whoever checks the exams realizes that it is a little strange for the guy who can't even attempt to do an exercise of this difficulty on his own to submit a perfectly written exam.

    @Friendy: I would urge you not to let this cheat get away with it, but I guess it doesn't really make much difference.

    Oh, come on, Pravit, everyone can lose his temper.
    I would not lose my temper with people I was begging to finish an exam for me. You could have at least made him repent, grovel, and beg before you helped him cheat

    I have an idea! Let's change MasterRussian.com's name to "RussianNotes.com." We'll pay native speakers to write essays on various topics and charge a small monthly price to sign up and get free Russian essays. For an extra fee you can ask Russians to do homework for you and write personalized essays. Soon we'll expand into the mail-order bride service and charge a small fee for writing love letters to your Russian bride-to-be. I mean, if you're going to do lazy people's work for them, you could at least make money off of it. Sound like a winning plan, MasterAdmin?

    EDIT: Sorry for being the 15th post. I hate the 15th post.

    re: (hey moderator ... get into this)

    listen all u chumps .. if u dun wanna help me translate then stay away and dont mess with me .. theres no rules here which says u can get ppl to translate ur exam essays for u. so stop bugging me. i've been a loyal visitor. everyday i look at da verb and da street signs and this is da first time i got a gibberish response. if u ppl got a problem then shut up and sit or go to some other forum. as long as i'm doing everything legal, there's not a damn thing u can do about it.

    p.s - hey pravit "I'll just get those nice Russians to do it for me!"" dont turn this into a racism thingy or anything. i've loved russians i've visited da USSR and one of them wuz kind enuf to lend me his soviet binoculars. sad every country has its own bunch of !@#$%^ and ur one of them.

    Re: re: (hey moderator ... get into this)

    Oh yea, you kept your bad attitude, asshole. Nice way to beg us "chumps" to do your work for you. You are so big, I feel cowardly in your ultra-cool presence. You're so cool you sign up for Russian then you call us "chumps" and tell us to do your work for you. It's too bad I'm a lowly piece of hash and dollar signs who actually does his own work and doesn't burst into rages at people he asks to help him.

    This would be a better way to ask:

    "pls pls pls pls pls help me d00d i dun kno anything i sign up 4 russin cuz its cool but i dun do work cuz its too hard so be c00l y0 and d0 this shite 4 me and also u r vary vary vary great"

    BTW, you are the one thinking this is a "racism thingy." I don't think you're racist, I just think you're lazy. And stupid.

    P.S.
    I love the 15th post.

    P.S.
    Friendy, you're too nice. Why don't you lend Ankitijyjiyj2 here your cypress cross? He has some kissing of Haymarket ground to do
