First off I just picked up Russian so have barely gotten into the course plus the language book I got (Living Language Russian)
I have two questions just for clarity.
The first regards HELLO
The phonetic spelling looks like the word ends in TE I have also seen it as TI depending on the source?!? But from the LL CD when the speaker is saying this it sounds like he is actually saying CHI at the end instead or TE or TI.
Being this is an English phonetics I would assume it should should like TI or TE but is the sound like he seems to be saying CHI
Second question is in this same basic expressions list i the word WELCOME
I am assuming based on other lessons that this is welcome as in Welcome to our home type setting or welcome to Russia type thing not welcome as in YOUR WELCOME in response to Thank You that I assume is different form of the word welcome. Correct?
