«Listening Comprehension for Absolute Beginers» is the best series so far! It really motivates to study.

Are you sure that this lesson is for beginners? I think, It's very hard for us.

Hello Juan,


1. Yes, you can skip these two words, meaning will be understandable, but the sentence will sound too simple and too short.


2. "Можем" means "we can" and "can we?", "is it possible?", "it is possible" etc., but I would recommend you to use pronoun and verb, not to skip "мы", because some native speakers can be confused about what you want to say. It's like to skip in English sentence "He likes cat" the pronoun "he" - "likes cats".


3. "ли" means "if","whether". The meaning is "....or not".

Можем ли мы заказать книги онлайн? (can we order books online OR NOT?)

Hello,


Does this phrase need both the words ли and мы or can they be left out?

Можем ли мы заказать книги онлайн? (can we order books online?)


Можем means both "We can" and "can we?", so мы seems optional to me. What's the purpose of the word ли (whether, if)?


Thanks!

The level one (beginner) Russian listening videos totally overwhelm me, to me they don't seem beginner level at all. the dialogue is very complex, I think they should be made with more of a simple dialogue at this level.
