    Оля,
    Thank you so much for the help! I'm going to record myself trying to say what is on the tape for:

    знакомить – acquaintances. - Is this right????
    несколько знакомить - some acquaintances????

    and post it to the "Audio Lounge". Will post here when it's up.

    Thank you,

    Scott

    Это неправильно.

    acquaintance (if you mean a friend) = "знакомый"
    acquaintances = "знакомые"

    несколько знакомых

    знакомить (verb) = introduce (to); acquaint (with)

    On the tape it sounds like:

    acquaintance (if you mean a friend) = "знакомый" - they do say friend also.
    несколько знакомых - they use this.

    Thank you,

    Nothing to be embarassed about - I phrased the sentence poorly.

    In the "Audio Lounge" section of this forum is a message "Pimsleur - Why is this necessary". I tried to repeat what is on the Pimsleur tape. I cannot find how to spell what is being said.

    Thank you,

    In the "audio lounge" is a message "Pimsleur - And we ate..."
