Trying to learn

Recommended Posts

Hey all, 
I was a long time player of PR and have recently restarted playing squad. 

However rather than using it simply for the gaming experience (which I've always enjoyed), I'm also using it as a way to practice speaking Russian out of class. For the most part, the Russian players on their servers have been very welcoming and patient. Just from one Saturday of playing and (albeit, not extremely well) communicating with them I was able to pick up a decent amount. 

What I was wondering is, could any of you Russian speakers set me up with a list of useful military phrases and commands that will ease this learning process?


This is in English because I can better explain it this way. If it needs to be in Russian I'll see what I can do :P


Thanks guys.

Do you need phrases in Russian for playing on Russian servers? English transcription is needed?

How well do you know Russian?


For example:

- Возьми кит медика - Voz'mi kit medika - Take the kit of the medic

- Противник на мне - Protivnik na mne - The enemy is at my coordinates

Hi, most of russian players use transliteration of original english Squad designations, like names of flags, certain kits and vehicles. One of the key elements of communication in Squad is accurate and quick intimation of directions and locations, so you need to learn numbers in russian to work with map grids and compass.

Stuff along the lines of what Zaicheg was saying. Phrases that could be memorized.


So my level is I can make very basic conversation. I know numbers, and changing the cases based on prepositions, etc. I'm mostly lacking vocabulary, and if you can think of any useful phrases to learn/memorize, like Zaicheg said, I'd appreciate it greatly. 
ZiGreen, you mentioned that directions are used a lot, and I agree. I cannot tell you how many times I wish I knew how to say "He ran around the corner" or something like that! I'm still working on learning those prepositions haha. 

Thanks for the replies guys.
