    Some words

    I am translating in Голоса, book 1 lesson 3, Давайти послушаем 3-31. It is an ad by radio from a Language Center and in 1'20'' is said:
    Сорок обученей во месяце. Все [b]д

    Re: Some words

    Сорок обученей во месяце.

    обученей - there is no such word, and the sentence doesn't make sense. It could be "Срок обучения - два(?) месяца", but I'm not sure.

    [i]Все [b]д

    God granted me the serenity to accept the things
    I cannot change
    Courage to change the things I can
    And wisdom to know the difference

    It doesn't matter if it sounds bad, if it is not grammatically wrong.. Beginners are not trying to pass themselves off as native Russian speakers. They need to be encouraged to write and speak.
    Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade where I choose, free to choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to talk, think and act for myself. - Chief Joseph, Nez Perce

    Let every beginner decide himself whether he needs that info or not.

    Beginners don't know enough to decide for themselves.

    1. I am a beginner in French and I do want to get info like that. Don't decide for me what I want and what I need!

    2. This thread is read not only by radomir and not only by beginners.

    3. DDT, are you radomir? If not, what all this stuff for?
