You can see that I have a series of translations from earlier tutorials which are listed here. The reason you might want to set a favorite translation is that you are on a banking business with someone, or you are trying to be cute with the hotel clerk or the person in the coffee shop; or in my case, attract the attentions and affections of an attractive young Russian lady - in which case knowing how to say something like, "How are you today?" is very important. Also, knowing how to understand that she said like, "How are you today?" is equally important.
She is a beautiful girl. I will paste in a message to Kara Buell right now and I ask her "How are you today?", and she will probably quickly send me a text message back so that I know how she is today. Let's do that.
You see that her message popped up. I can say this message in American but no one is going to understand that and anyone reading this should not be required to understand that either. Under normal circumstances, had I not been trying to win the affections of this Russian girl for so long, I would not know what that said so I am going to tap this message and hold it and then I am going to copy it.
Well, how are you?"; or kind of, "Hi, Mr. Boring Guy. Well, here you are again bothering me while I am trying to work - you keep disturbing me. Well, how are you?"; or is she saying "Well, I am well it's so wonderful to hear from you. I am well because you are here and you are amazing.", not that anyone ever says that to a man. So let's try to find out what these words mean.
Actually none of the translations listed say "Well" but in the context of that sentence the version of "well" used means "good" - I am well
It is actually a very pleasant thing that she said to me. It makes me feel wonderful and sparkling. Those of you who speak Russian might say that it was actually a pretty normal thing for her to say but to a love-struck American guy, why not? Sounds fantastic.
This is how you set Favorites and how you use them to help you translate things to make things work better for you
In the case of these words here, save your own favorites. Then you are on Google Translate. You can quickly tap on your favorite and you can scroll down what is important. As you learn to communicate with another person in a different language, you can cross off the words you have learned. Russian is an interesting language. It's a lot of fun to be having this translation tool, your Favorites, your Home button and everything else you can do with it.
