Мальчик ест Ben and I are learning Russian so we can communicate in the native tongue of our good friend Suren. Ben has been taking Russian for about 2 years and all he can say is "привет лошади. Вы хотели бы съесть?" which in English means "Hello horse. Would you like to eat?". I have been taking Russian for about 1/2 a month and all I can say is "мальчиков ест бутерброд" or "The boy eats a sandwich".
