Hey listeners! Are there any words you didn't know before getting this list? Write them down here!

I'm a bit confused. Here are two questions and a comment.


First, in the vocabulary expansion the phrase "Мы катаемся на коньках." is translated as "Let's go ice skating tonight!". Wouldn't the translation of that phrase be more correctly "We skate." or "We are skating." or more literally "We ride/are riding on skates."? Wouldn't the English phrase "Let's go ice skating tonight!" be better expressed in Russian as one of the following:


"Давайте катаемся на коньках сегодня вечером!"

"Давай катаемся на коньках сегодня вечером!"

"Давайте коньках сегодня вечером!"

"Давай коньках сегодня вечером!"


or possibly:


"Давайте катаемся на коньках сегодня ночью!"

"Давай катаемся на коньках сегодня ночью!"

"Давайте коньках сегодня ночью!"

"Давай коньках сегодня ночью!"

A second question. The recording includes several words that do not show up in the vocabulary list. Will these be added later, or do we need to add these ourselves somehow, so that they can be reviewed in our "Word Bank" or "Flashcards"?


Third, a comment. The name for the audio/mp3 file that is downloaded is currently "audiolesson_f69e2ec13be56527f37fe7e3d34a4877.mp3". Shouldn't that be "RVB_S1L24_122715_rpod101.mp3" to be consistent with the way files are labelled in your system?


I realize that the dates on these files are only from a couple of days ago (12/27/15), so perhaps in the rush of the season, you just haven't had a chance to tidy up.


BTW, I find your site to be extremely helpful in restoring my Russian language capabilities that many decades of neglect had begun to nearly wipe out. So, please take the above as positive comments to help improve the site not as a negative criticism.


Thanks and С новым годом!
