POST
Eric: Listen to Марина (Marina)'s post again.
Elena: Рекомендую!
Eric: "My recommendation!"
Elena: (SLOW) Рекомендую! (Regular) Рекомендую!
Eric: Let’s take a look at the expression meaning "My recommendation!"
Elena: Рекомендую! (Rekamenduyu!)
Eric: Literally this word can be translated as "I recommend," although it only has the conjugated verb meaning “recommend.” Russian verbs are conjugated based on person and number. Therefore, in daily conversation, you can omit pronouns like this one, as it’s clear to Russians who the verb is referring to. Use this pattern when you want to give recommendations to your friends. Listen again. "My recommendation!" is...
Elena: (SLOW) Рекомендую! (Rekamenduyu!) (REGULAR) Рекомендую! (Rekamenduyu!)
