    Continuing on, adding pertinent sentences suitable for SRS use to Grog's work. FYI, after this lesson, it looks like only 16 and 22 need to be beefed up to have a complete transcript that allows one to avoid typing completely.

    Урок номер четырнадцать – Lesson Number Fourteen

    А: Привет, Сергей. Как дела?
    Б: Спасибо, хорошо. А у тебя?
    А: Неплохо. Когда ты собираешься в Киев?
    Б: Я уезжаю завтра утром.
    А: Ты собираешься поехать один?
    Б: Нет, с подругой. У неё там есть друзья.

    с подругой - with my girlfriend
    друзья - friends
    У неё там есть друзья. - She has friends there.
    бо́льше - more
    Мне больше нравится бэз молоко. - I like it better without milk.
    с сахаром - with sugar
    бэз сахаро - without sugar
    Я хотел с сахаром но бэз молоко. - I wanted it with sugar but without milk.
    Я там буду до субботей. - I'll be there until Saturday.
    Очень жаль. - That's a pity.
    В четверг вечером будет хоро́ший концерт. - On Thursday night there will be a good concert.
    У вас сейчас есть нeсколько минут? - Do you have a few minutes now?
    вы не хотите чашку кофе? - You don't want a cup of coffee?
    Cпасибо за кофе. - Thanks for the coffee.

    Мне больше нравится без молока. - I like it better without milk.
    без сахара - without sugar
    Я хотел с сахаром, но без молока. - I wanted it with sugar but without milk.
    Я там буду до субботы. - I'll be there until Saturday.
    вы не хотите чашку кофе?
    - Don't you want a cup of coffee?
    - Would you like a cup of coffee?
    When in Russian we ask "не хотите ли вы ..." we don't ask this question to clarify that the person really don't want something. It is just a sort of polite form to offer something.
    So "хотите чашку кофе" and "не хотите чашку кофе" are equal.

    Thanks CoffeeCup.
    Lesson 16 didn't need any additions - it just doesn't have much new material, so Grog's original sentences are sufficient. I'll check out lesson 22 in a week or so (I start 18 tomorrow). When I finish 30, I'll combine all the enhanced transcripts I posted with corrections into one post.

    CoffeeCup, I saw a lot of this in your corrections. These sentences are for two-way drilling. I put the (by foot) in there to know whether I should use хожу or езжу when I drill from English to Russian. Are you saying that "Иногда́ я туда езжу." is wrong?

    It can be both. But "Гостиницу" is better.

    "езжу" is used to specify that you visit that place with the use of some kind of transport. You are not walking there by foot.

    "хожу" is ambiguous.

    • It is used to specify that you visit that place without any clarification how do you come there by foot or by any kind of transport.
      • Я хожу туда иногда. - Sometimes I visit that place. (I go there).

    • It is also used to point out that you go there by foot. But for this purpose in most cases we use some additional information in such sentence:
      • Я не езжу, а хожу туда. - Here "хожу" means "go by foot".
      • Я хожу туда пешком. - I go there by foot.



    Actually "ходить" is as ambiguous as English "go" in this sense.

    It’s really great to have the Pimsleur Transcripts here, but as I can see there are many versions of the transcripts as well as many posts with corrections and it’s hard to get through all these posts in order to figure out the corrected ones.

    Is there someplace where we can easily find all the corrected transcripts together?

    Thank you in advance.

    The very first post in all three Pimsleur threads is the corrected version I worked on (with lot's of help). I did NOT use the Pimsleur version that is out now.

    Thanks Scott. However you said that you did the transcripts based on an older Pimsleur version and not on the current version that is out now. Are there any big differences between the two versions?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Hello. I used Russian I 3rd edition and Russian II and III 2nd edition. I did not have any problems or even notice going from the 3rd edition to the 2nd and all the material covered in the lessons I found in these threads. I hope that helps answer your question.

    Also a big thanks to MR, fortheether and everyone who contributed to these very helpful threads.

    Thanks Sala. That's good news. However, which transcripts did you used from the threads here? Grogs' or Fortheether's?
