    Asking a russian girl for a date

    Hi,

    New to speaking Russian, I know Hi (Pree-vee-et) and Goodbye (Pah-kah)
    I'm so advanced! hehe

    I want to ask this girl to go out with me. She is Russian, I am not sure quite how to ask. I figured in her native language would be a cool way to ask her for a date.

    One guy I know suggested (typed) to me, "poidom posmotrim kino?"
    He said this translates to: "We go see movies?" is that correct?

    Do I pronounce like this: poy-dumb poze-mow trimm keenoh? Which words do I emphasize? Please excuse my ignorance!

    If someone could record this for me (say it slow once, and then normal speed please!), so I get the pronunciation right, that would be greatly appreciated!

    Also, does anyone know of another good way to ask her out in Russian dialect? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    Here's my attempt but I'm not a native speaker so wait for one of them to post a better one.

    It was very good!
    Nice voice, Basurero

    The only slip is "posmotrim". "posmotrim"

    you can say: "Хочешь пойти в кино?" - "hochesh poiti v kino?
    Не плюй в колодец, пригодится водицы, напиться.

    Wouldn't the correct way to say this phrase be "поидём посмотреть кино"?

    пойдём посмотрим кино...
    пойдём (по)смотреть кино...
    идём/пойдём в кино?
    even пойдём сходим в кино!
    в кино хочешь?
    в кино не хочешь ли?
    хочешь фильм посмотреть?
    как насчёт кинА? (sleng)

    there is lots of ways.

    Hoe-kesh Poy-toe Vuh Keeno?

    What is the difference between the two terms? Thanks, I'm very bad at this! :/

    ho-chesh pay-tee fkee-no

    ho = like in horde
    pay = to rhyme with Guy, Pie, Try

    Stress falls on the bolded vowel.

    Можете ли вы записать эти фразы? Я не уверен в том, как сказать их в качестве вопросов.

    Don't overload him with information, he'll just get confused. basuerro's post answered his question perfectly and is sufficient for his needs!

    Since what you want to learn of the Russian language is just one phrase, you needn't sound as a native speaker - it'd be a little strange.

    Спасибо, красота-то какая. Это здорово помогает, потому что мне еще довольно трудно отличать интонацию вопроса от интонации нормального предложения.
