    Homework help

    Hello,
    Is the Russian correct?



    Английский такой же трудный, так немецкий.
    English is as difficult as German.

    Thank you,


    Scott

    Thank you for the help!

    Please - two more to be sure I get it.


    My composition is not as long as yours.
    Мое сочинение не такое же длинное, как ваше.

    It isn't as warm today as it was yesterday.
    Сегодня не такая же тёплая, как вчера.

    Thank you,


    Scott

    Since you omit "погода" in Russian that makes it connected as "тёплая погода", it is better to say:

    Сегодня не так тепло, как вчера.

    Слово "язык" здесь не обязательно.
    "...как и немецкий" - намного лучше.

    Можно еще сказать "Английский так же труден, как и немецкий".

    I'd say here:
    Мое сочинение не такое _ длинное, как ваше.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Оля - thank you for the prior reply.


    Ok so I am not getting this "же" thing. Some of the comparison sentences use it, sometimes not. I looked through this thread:

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Scott

    Speaking about comparisons, it's used if some other object ( or action ) have the same trait as main object.
    Её брат такой же умный, как его жена
    Ты можешь съесть столько же, сколько и вчера.

    And is not used, if it have not or objects' parameters are not compared.
    Её брат не такой умный, как его жена
    Ты можешь (съ)есть (столько,) сколько (ты) хочешь
    Russian is tough, let’s go shopping!

    же's similar in a certain usage of the English word 'just'.
    "I'm just as good as he is"
