Question on Newbie Lesson 15 - 'расстраиватьс

Postby watsong » December 7th, 2009 3:50 am

Hello. I have a question on one of the newbie Russian lessons.

The word for 'Worry' is used during this lesson for the phrase 'Don't worry. All will be good.' . It seems to begin with an 'R' when spoken. But what is the word? How is it spelt?

The dictionary states 'Worry' is 'беспокойство' - which, clearly, doesn't begin with an 'R' or even include an 'R'.

The word for 'Worry' should really have been included in the lesson notes. I worry that I will not be able to properly tell someone to not worry!

Спасибо за ваш помощь )).

According to the dictionaries, 'расстраиваться' means 'to be upset' and not 'to worry'.

It varies from one translator to another. One translator said беспокойство means anxiety. Synonyms include worry among others. So saying to someone "Don't be anxious" or "Don't feel anxiety" would mean the same as "Don't worry." It's one of those nuances that be frustrating!

"...спасибо за Вашу помощь":)

При изучении иностранного языка просто принимать на веру, не спрашивать почему. Так учат дети.
