Do you speak Russian?

If no, why not?
>>
>>558837
I'm not Russian, i don't need to learn russian.

What a stupid thread is that?
>>
>>558837
I'm learning Ukrainian
>>
I speak a slavic language, and I've been thinking about attempting it. But it's honestly annoying, bunch of same words with different meanings.
>>
No, I have literally no reason to learn it.

I am learning Japanese though.
>>
>>558845
If you're a native Slavophone doesn't it mean you can learn Russian in like 10 minutes?
>>
>>558837
>why not?
Cause i don't watch child pornography
>>
>>558849
Not really. Croatian is related to it but it's not like Slovenian where you can understand half of it naturally.
>>
>>558837
>If no, why not?
I'm too poor to sustain a Russian gf, And my occasional visits with Ukraine prostitutes does not justify the effort of learning a Slavic language

Ukrainian is extremely similar to Russian. I don't get what you're surprised about?

Because I speak a superior Slavic language.

I did take a one-year class in high school but it's too hard to learn tbqh.
>>
I started to, but wasn't able to find a solid explanation for the difference between ETO and ETOT, so I went back to focusing on my French.
>>
So do Slavic languages have heavy influence from Greek?
>>
>>559620
Only the alphabet, which is trivial.
>>
>>559620
No, except maybe the Macedonian spoken in Greece.
>>
>>559620
Maybe some of the very southern ones like Bulgarian.

How did I do? Pole here who never learnt it.

something is wrong with your cases

care to translate it properly then?

I keep hearing from some slavic friends of mine here in the States that Ukrainian speakers can speak and understand Russian, but Russian speakers can't speak/understand Ukrainian. Is there any truth to that?
>>
>>559764
Or, even better:
Этo = it is
этoт = it

This will explain most uses of этo.
>>
>>560096
It probably happens like with portuguese and spaniards. The inhabitants of the bigger country with a bigger past are more arrogant and prideful of their language and put less effort in understanding a foreign language.

Educated and intelligent spaniards can understand portuguese like the portuguese understand spanish, and I'm sure the same happens with russians and ukranian.
>>
>>559871
Could use work, but you look like a functional reader of Russian. I don't speak it myself though so I can"t know for sure.
>>
>>558837

I'm learning Chinese and Russian. Because once the China and Russia collapse and their economies crash I want to establish my business there and shill the Chinese and Russians out of their Rubles and Yuans

If I wanted to spend time learning a language, I'd go for Lithuanian. Probably the closest I'll get to PIE

Yes. Born in ex-soviet country , don't really speak it unless it's with my parents. I like to avoid Russians , especially the ones here because they always use you.

Is there some sort of English ALT program for Russia like there is for asian countries? I like the idea of doing that, meeting a qt tartar girl, then getting cucked violently by her gopnick bf.

All you have to do is spout random words with a lot of "y" and "ch" sounds

I'd say yes, most of Russians can't understand pure Ukrainian language. In fact, many Ukrainians speak on a mix of Russian and Ukraininan, called Surzhik. And most of Ukrainians can understand Russian just because they all watched movies on Russian, read books on Russian and so on.

A) Sort of. B) because my native language is Polish and its false friends and interfere like motherfuckers in learning it wholly. Also Slavic languages exist on a continuum, just as Northern Germanic languages. You're not learning a new language so much as unlearning the one you work in. Frustrating. Ukrainian and Slovak are obviously much cozier.
>>

Why do Slavic women look so beautiful with high cheek bones but the men look retarded?

Polish and Ukrainian share 70% lexical similarity vs Russian and Ukrainian at ~62% only. The whole question of Ukrainian identity should be seen as kinda bullshitty. They were called Rusini: Ruthenians until after WW2. Also who are Ukrainians, Lemko, Boyko, Hucul, Górale, Slovaks etc if not just border Slavs?
>>
>>564673
It looks chiseled and classically Arya... I mean European Get fucked, untermensch.

No, because I am unable to learn any language at all. Started a lot, dropped all. Can't retain a single word.

It's a wonder I can speak english (although not so good). Probably there is also a lack of motivation, but overall found myself unable to learn any language.
