When a person don’t like something very much, she says this is disgusting.

2. Моя страна лучше. (Moya strana luchshe.) “My country is better.”
Each country is unique and magnificent in its own way. Therefore, it will be ugly and not correct to say that someone’s country is better.”

Next phrase...
4. Мне не особенно интересна ваша культура. (Mne ne osobenno interesna vasha kul'tura.) “I'm not very interested in your culture.”
Culture is different anywhere so you should not say that some were better and some were worst.

Next phrase...
5. Я не люблю знакомиться с новыми людьми. (Ya ne lyublyu znakomit’sya s novymi lud'mi.) “I don't like meeting new people.”
People are different. Someone likes to meet new people and some do not, but there’s nothing wrong. Just be a good person and people will be kind to you.
К примеру, я интроверт, и я не люблю знакомиться с новыми людьми. (K primeru, ya introvert, i ya ne lyublyu znakomit’sya s novymi lyud'mi.) “For example, I am an introvert, and I do not like meeting new people.”
Next phrase...
6. Давайте просто поедим в Макдональдсе. (Davayte prosto poyedim v Makdonal'dse.) “Let's just eat at McDonald's.”
Everyone knows what fast food is. By the way, we discussed this word in one of the previous lessons. Something you need to eat quickly and continue to run and do your things. In such cases, you can help out one of the fast food restaurants, for example, McDonalds. By the way in Russia, it is something called short - Макдак (Makdak).
У меня совсем нет времени. Может, давай просто поедим в Макдональдсе? (U menya sovsem net vremeni. Mozhet, davay prosto poyedim v Makdonal'dse?)
Давай. (Davay.)
“I don’t have time. Maybe, let’s just eat at McDonald’s?”
“Okay.”
Next phrase…
7. Скучно! (Skuchno!) “Boring!”
When you have nothing to do or bad weather outside the window, you get bored.

Next phrase…

If you decide to travel, be prepared for the fact that the cuisine of other countries may differ from your countries, very much differ. Therefore, maybe this tastes awful for you, but for other people, it can be the most favorite dish.
