Currently learning Russian. For Russians out there, do you have some cartoons to recommend to ease my learning?

Learn these helpful phrases!
"I am sorry, officer. How much to pay you to let me go?"
"I need krokodil, how much for it?"
"If you touch my vodka, I will sell your kidneys!"
"This is a good kidney. You buy it!"
"Where are the guys squatting today?"
"How much for the tracksuit?"
"Is the dashcam working properly?"
"America is a shithole!"
These will help you fit right in, anon! God bless the Rodina!
Thanks anon! I'll be sure to use these practical Russian idioms when I'll be going to the motherland in a couple of years. Especially the krokodil one, I find heroin is too safe here in Canada.
What the actual fuck. No one recommended Cheburashka?
Cheburashka is a staple of Russian classes everywhere.
Are you taking classes or just trying to teach yourself? I really recommend paying money at a university at least for the first year.
Yeah, when Bulgaria was a powerful country producing literature and culture Russia was a bunch of tribes getting raped by chinks. Even the alphabet is Bulgaria.
Also you're a monkey.

Kin Dza Dza is real fun and funny. You have to enable the subs on this youtube video. Seems to be a good translation.
I was lucky to watch this with a native of an CCP. He explained that "vinegar" is a joke about Georgian wine being sour.
The Georgian character explains that it is not wine, but vinegar.
Also, matches are the cheapest single thing in the Soviet world. In this place, matches are very valuable. It is a bit funnier if you know how cheap matches were in Soviet times.
"o" in unaccented position usually isn's pronounced as "o". For example,
кopoвa - [кapoвa]
мoлoкo - [мaлaкo]
It's just easier to pronounce vowels this way than straight like they are written.
) is just simplified form of :-)
)), ))), ))))))) are intensifed forms of )
What do manuals on Russian language say about it? Isn't there a clear classification of sounds and pronounciations? (I've never read one)
hahaha. I always tell this as a joke when I explain Russian. They promise it is phonetic but there are things like "g is v in 'ogo'", "e is ye and yo", and "o and a are the same when not stressed"
The exceptions are really quite few. It is very easy to acquire correctitude.
Yes, there are sets of soft and hard letters for both consonants and vowels and rules for when they don't apply, and a soft and hard sign that serve to change the stress as well
You should look up a couple videos about it when you start learning but you won't really get the concept until you're farther in
I think I understand what you mean, I know about ы
and ь which can change the stress on syllables, but I legitimately cannot see a pattern to it.
When I went into Russian, it said that it's a phonetic language (each sound has a corresponding letter) so I thought it'd be just like Japanese which is actually phonetic, and I was deeply wrong.
It will randomly click eventually once you're pretty into the language, or at least it did for me after like 6 months
regarding ь , I would explain it differently than as a stress change. It is "myakiy znak" literally "soft sound" and palatalizes the consonant before it, softening it but not changing where the stress occurs in the world. Perhaps you know that and perhaps I am mistaken about some things.
>Perhaps you know that and perhaps I am mistaken about some things.
You don't live in a legalistic or civilized society so I'll forgive you this. See, in the first world we use qualifiers to protect our statements from being construed as an attempt at absolute truth.
You've also got this in the first world
>Can you please tell me how to say these words in russian?
>-Son of a bitch
>-please go away
>-I love to drink
>-You make me nervous
>-Go fuck yourself
Use Google translate to pronounce:
Cyкин cын (But I recommend "мyдилa")
Ухoди (in Russian word "please" don't used real often)
Я люблю пить (but if want say it about alcohol use "бyхaть" instead of "пить")
Tы мeня бecишь
Пoшёл нa хyй.
Thank you so much! I've been meaning to learn more and more about your culture. I've been listening to a podcast about Russian history that's about 10 hours long and I'm so fascinated.
The Russian centre of culture and science in my country is close to my university, so I'll do my best to learn more and more about Russia and hopefully, I'll be able to visi someday t. Ah, that'd be a dream come true.
>do you have some cartoons to recommend to ease my learning?
ctrl+shirt or ctrl+alt switches it
>Also, how do Russians on /int/ type Latin?
All our devices have 2 kinds of letters Russian and English
I use smartphone, see screenshot.
Fuck, you memorize the fucking position of each Latin letter?
I set it up so left alt switches keyboards. But I use Russian phonetic keyboard, meaning that when I press the Latin letter, it makes the Cyrillic equivalent. Of course, not all letters have equivalents, so there are some exception I need to memorize, like ` makes ю, q makes я, [ makes ш, ] makes щ, = makes ч, x makes ь, v makes ж, shift + 3 makes ё. Maybe I am forgetting some.
>Fuck, you memorize the fucking position of each Latin letter?
I'm not sure if you're
>Currently learning Russian.
One day you would come to mirror and would see him, be careful.
What about me, I also always handwrite letters in their type form. But there are really not very much people like me and it looks a bit strange.
It's because in school we are teached to write like on the picture.
That looks really hard. Maybe I should learn it though, it'll probably be worth my time, learning Cyrillic definitely was. But how do you write б to not look like 6, and З to not look like 3? Or do you just let it happen and deal with it?
я бyдy лeтaть в poccиe в этoм лeтoм и мнe нyжнo знaть oднa вeщь. pyccкиe жeнщины лeгкo пoeбaть или нeт.
и пpocтитe я нe гoвopю пo pyccки идeaльнo))))
If I were you, I woudn't learn it, I don't think it's nessesary. This style of writing is supposed to be faster and more neat, but in fact you can write fast and elegantly with type-letters.
About 6 and 3 - a context usually makes it clear what sign it is.

Haiku (俳句, About this sound listen (help·info), haikai verse?) (plural: same or haikus) is a very short form of Japanese poetry. It is typically characterised by three qualities:
The essence of haiku is "cutting" (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji ("cutting word") between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colors the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.
Traditional haiku consist of 17 on (also known as morae), in three phrases of 5, 7 and 5 on respectively.
A kigo (seasonal reference), usually drawn from a saijiki, an extensive but defined list of such words.
