I don't understand the string. Is it a mega link?
>>21 >YUhSMGNITTZMeTl0WldkaExtNTZMeU5HSVc0eFpIZEhZVXRUSVcwKERFTEVURV9NRSkwVldScmNuQXdZVk0zZVVsRVFsZHhaMXBUYzNjPQ Is this a link we're meant to put into a bittorrent client? Because it doesn't work there.
>>409 A mega link base64-encoded twice.
>>412 Oh, well I feel dumb. Thank you.
I dont think mega link works anymore or is it me ?

I made 4 variants of the translation of the meme. Which one do you think is more accurate and conveys the essence better?
>>21 I am heavily considering learning Russian, how different/hard would you say it is compared to English and my native tongue if you lucky enough to be able to compare them?
>>630 Oh, flags are off right now? By native tongue I meant Spanish.
>>631 They were removed once BO changed
>>630 I don't have much experience with Spanish, but from the sentence structure, I would assume it is heavily similiar to English. In context of Spanish, you have a slight advangtage with the phonetics and pronounciation compared to an Englishman, though nothing tremendous. Compared to English, the grammar is pretty different and the sentence structure is more complex, more descriptive and in general, has more rules. One also uses punctuation more often and there are more rules and grammar theory behind it as well. The phonetics are hard-ish, even for a slav. You'll have to learn a whole new alphabet; the so called azbuka. The hard/soft signs are cancer and introduce more grammar rules. Overall though, I wouldn't say it's a hard languge, you just have to throw away everything you know and learn like a baby. The initial shock and steep learning curve of adopting a new alphabet, grammar rules, phonetics and with all that a vastly different mindset, I think puts most people off, but if you perservere the language it self isn't that hard and is mostly intuitive once you get in the right mindset. I'm no expert, so take it with a coarse grain of salt, just my two cents.
>>630 >>636 I apologize for double-posting, but I forgot that the accent heavily varies all across Russia. Most people also don't speak entirely gramatically correct Russian, but an easier regional version of Russian. So adjust your learning according to your target goal; a conversational Russian is much more easier to learn than classical Russian.

Ok, so what ressources would you actually recommend to a complete beginner? The mega folder is empty btw. I've never learned a foreign language besides english, but I'm really interested in making up for that. What do you think about pic related? I just downloaded it.

oh, another imageboard as dead as a seacucumber
>>656 fuck plebbit
What isn't dead?
>>630 >how different/hard would you say it is compared to English and my native tongue Pretty much the exact opposite in most aspects. Russian is regarded as one of the hardest languages to learn in the world. In all fairness, it's arguably the only one worth learning out of those other languages due to them being irrelevant gookshit, and Finnish. The main hardship in learning Russian is the complex and intricate system of padeji or grammatical cases, as well as declensions. Imagine that every single object in existence has either a masculine, a feminine or a neutral form and you must know by heart how to instantly declinate it in a sentence. >but I forgot that the accent heavily varies all across Russia What are you talking about? Russian doesn't have accents. At best there's a slight "southern drawl" but even that is a stretch. Russian is specifically regarded as being universal across the entirety of the country, where anyone can fully understand each other, unlike most of Europe where there are insane accents and dialects across regions. >Most people also don't speak entirely gramatically correct Russian The fuck are you talking about? Everyone in Russia speaks grammatically correct Russian.
Russian with ease is a pretty handy resource
