Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Elena: You can use these phrases to ask when someone is leaving for somewhere, even when they’re leaving a country or a city. But be aware that you can use this phrase to talk about leaving by car, bus or train. If you leave by foot or plane, the verb will be different.

Outro

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Elena: Пока.

Hello Тарык,


I corrected your sentences a bit.


"Я уезжаю через 5 минут!) Я уже устал учить... Мне пора отдыхать..."👍

Hello Fernando,


Your sentence is correct 👍


The word [уезжаю] is pronounced without [з].

Я уезжаю в Россию в августе.

Difficult word! I don´t notice the pronunciation of "з".

Hello (Жолт) Zsolt,


You have a great sentence, just small mistakes - "Я уезжаю… Не знаю когда и куда… Но точно когда-нибудь и куда-нибудь!"
