    Counting from 1 to 10

    Hi, does anyone mind recording the numbers 1 to 10 in Russian?
    I know how to write them, but I want to know how to say them properly.

    Thanks in advance.

    Большое спасибо. I just have two comments.

    For "четыре", I can barely hear the first "e" -- when I first heard it, it sounded non-existent. Almost like it was pronounced "штыре". Does that sound right?

    Also, the "я" in "девять" and "десять" sounded to me like a very short "ы", rather than the yaah sound that I would expect.

    Though, this is the first time I've heard these numbers spoken, so I'm sure that your pronunciations are correct -- I just want to make sure I heard them correctly.

    To answer your question, in my opinion, no. It is clearly a ч and not a ш. Try listening to ReDSanchous' voice several more times. I haven't been studying Russian very long but I can hear the ч.

    Also, the "я" in "девять" and "десять" sounded to me like a very short "ы", rather than the yaah sound that I would expect.
    Again, I can hear the я. It is definately not a ы sound.

    I think what is difficult for us who are learning the language as we tend to want to hear each an every letter pronounced clearly and strongly. But as you know in English we very rarely do that, sounds blend together and they do so in other languages as well.

    You have to keep in mind that the pronounciation of each syllable or vowel depends on the position of the stress in the word and modify the pronounciation of the unstressed ones.

    Since everybody is recording their voices, I might as well give it a try.
    I suggest you should also try Sleepy.

    Good job, kwatts! I think that you should work a little bit on the pronunciation of the following numbers: 3 and 9. The rest of 'your' numbers are pretty good.

    That was pretty good! I can hear an American accent but who said that there would be no accent?

    Guitari609, your pronuciation's pretty good. Honestly, I very much like the first 6 numbers. I think that your main problem is the sound ь. You should make the endings of 5, 7, 8, 9, 10 much softer.

    tdk2fe, your go is pretty good too. Your main problem is the pronunciation of number 3. Particularly the sound т. It sounds very unnatural to me.

    Red, You made my day, even if I only got the first 6 right. And the ь sound is killing me, that's what I'm working on right now, as far as pronunciation goes. Thanks.

    You're welcome. Once you have had enough practice record your voice once again so that we can evaluate your hard work on the sound ь

    It sounded like you said Dwa instead of Dva.
    Adeen wasn't too bad. Maybe if you had said them a bit quicker it would 'flow' more, it sounded a bit drawn out.
    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.

    I may have the worst pronounciation, but I think my file size is also the smallest. Yahoooooo.
