    The difference's minuscule, so you probably won't even be able to hear it. As for the recording, I'll make it in 20 mins, ok?

    EDIT: I've lost my mic! I can't find it anywhere in my room! Sorry....

    ReDSanchous is right, no need to make a recording, they sound the same. That's why Russians make mistakes in that kind of words -ться/-тся. I mean in written language.

    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    May be I'm missing something but theres no such word as завершатся....
    or is it just a matter of accent you guys discuss here?

    In my Russian class, there's a guy who immigrated after Kindergarten, so he his knowledge is limited to speaking. He speaks with his parents and in class quite fluently, but he writing, hah! Anyway, the teacher (a rather old man) gets somewhat frustrated because this student repeatedly writes "мне нравица" and the like.

    You can often stumble on words like нравицца on the web. Some like to write this way.

    жжошь = жжёшь
    пашёл = пошёл
    автор = афтар

    ...and more.

    BTW, in English, you often spell incorrectly too...
    For example, gotcha, wanna, gotta, gonna, kinda, and more.

    It's considered informal but some people think that it's incorrect

    I had learned Russian words with foreign derivative, sound nearly the same as they would in the foreign language. This seems to hold true for many words I have learned so far.

    For example....

    пицца
    Нью-Йорк
    телефон
    туалет
    Такси
    меню
    виза
    студент

    It's меню.
