    The pronunciation of "щ"

    Привет всем! I've been listening to some Russian CD's in which a word is given in Russian followed by the English translation (or vice versa). To me, it sounds like this speaker is pronouncing her щ's strangely. They sound almost like a "стч" combination. Does it sound odd to native speakers?

    BTW, the words are:

    почтовый ящик - mailbox
    в помещении - indoors
    в общем - altogether
    спящий - asleep
    защищённый - protected

    Thanks,

    Grogs

    Произношение хорошее, но слышен акцент.

    Yes. There is an accent. The щ's are strange.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.
