    Numbers.

    Hi.

    I am travelling at the moment so cant really get to the interenet that often, and I only have a really old dictionary (nothing else). Could someone please record a few words for me?

    The russian word for hello would be good as I always struggle with that. Also if someone could count from 11 through to 19? Perhaps a word that emphasises the difference in 'o' and 'a' when stressed - any example you like.

    If these are online somewhere for free then that is fine for a link.

    Thanks
    Andrew

    If anyone could help with translations or audio recording please email me!

    A few simple phrases in Russian that you can read and listen to.

    When I was only a beginner in Russian I had an undue love for the word четырнадцать - such a beautiful composition of consonants... sigh!

    Man, chetyrnadtsat'. I've never come across a harder to pronounce word, that I can think of right now. I'm contemplating making a recording but just the thought of contorting my mouth in such a manner is putting me off my dinner.

    Lol, you don't know how to pronoun an e? Where have you been all these years?

    Look at this post of yours once more and you'll see that you have missed 'c'. I guess you wanted to write 'pronounce' but accidentally missed it and pressed 'space'.

    See no problem pronouncing 14 name. But just because I'm Russian. Make sure you reduce proper sounds and have them articulated in the front part of your mouth.

    We are desperately waiting for your recording. Once your mouth is ready to make proper sounds, let us know by placing a recording showing the readiness of your mouth.

    Should I put the article "a/an" before "Russian" in the sentence "I'm Russian"???

    Doing this recording, I have discovered it's the dtsat' which is the really painful part.

    ну, по крайне мере, это именно та часть, которая повтарается в этих словах! Повторение - мать учения!

    basusero, your last two attempts to say "14" are better than when you're pronouncing the numbers one after another.
