Сегодня в лингафонном кабинете ELEMENTARY RUSSIAN (21 февраля, Урок 6, неделя 2 Unit 6 Week 1 Elementary Russian)

Сегодня 21-ое февраля. 

Привет! Как дела? У меня все хорошо! Или нет...


1. Запишитесь! Did you sign in?
2. Напишите тест по новым словам. Did you take your quiz?
3. Почитаем! After you've taken your quiz... read this article for some cultural insights about the question, How are you?... 

In my experience, it's mostly true, though younger Russians (kids your age) understand that you're not really asking how they're doing when you ask... How do you do?



Как дела? Нормально... 

А теперь... Review quickly counting by tens. Listen to this recording and read along with the numerals from below. Listen a couple times...


А теперь... Послушайте, как я читаю числительные... Listen to a recording of me reading some "thousands"... One thousand, two thousand... NB a couple things: The word for thousand, тысяча, is feminine, so you get однА тысячА; in 2, 3, and 4 thousand, the work тысяча is in the genitive singular form, две тысячи, три тысячи, четыре тысячи. Five thousand and higher, the word тысяча is in the genitive plural form, тысяч. (You don't yet know that form! Все ХОРОШО!)


Make sure you have a lab worksheet, and do упражнение А, writing down the prices of the items. The challenge here is to figure out how many thousands and hundreds each item costs. You'll hear the word тысяча in various forms; the forms aren't as important as the numbers in front. 

Then, come to the tables! We'll work some more on the use and formation of the Genitive Case. 

Don't forget... Сегодня днем, вы должны потусоваться с корешами... You need to get down with your homeboys over some blin...
