ROPZ SPEAKS RUSSIAN (PROOFS)
 | 
Finland TuureBoelius 
There was a debate about if ropz spoke Russian and could possibly join NaVi in the future on HLTV recently. I've got proof that ropz DOES speak Russian: ropz has learnt Russian in school: twitter.com/ropzicle/status/544454191855.. (Translation: "Our Russian teacher let us off early for the first time") ropz watches Russian stream: twitter.com/ropzicle/status/934009177449.. ropz responds to a question in Russian on Instagram: i.imgur.com/4IacCPB.png Thoughts ? /discuss
2021-02-20 16:28
Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
This means that ropz can join NaVi!

its not that easy i think, especially on t side. i think ropz would be more of a replacment for electronic rolewise, but getting rid of electronic would obviously be braindead

i think ropz would be a good lurker. he very smart player and can cut off rotations and also can be there for the clutch. On CT they also play same roles. i dont think ropz and electronic play same roles on t side.

It's not a downgrade for ropz????? How tf is NaVi a downgrade??? But it wouldn't happen anyway since his Russian level is very poor according to some actual Russians in this thread, his reading and writing seems to be good but the most important part which is speaking is at a poor level.

You can form sentences but when a native speaker speaks to you with their own accent and native speed it can be difficult for a learner to keep up
2021-02-20 17:28
I think usually auditory skills are the hardest thing learning memorized rules and forming sentences at your own pace in a different language can be somewhat easy, but it's hard when you hear native speakers and in your pov they talk extremely fast or in their accent words sound completely different than how you learned even being fluent with English, certain accents people talk in can be difficult to understand especially when people talk very fast because words get pronounced incorrectly according to your own dialect
2021-02-20 18:21

I disagree. You should learn language by getting some basics and then talking with other people. Learning through books is terrible. Active use of language is better and faster and always will be. Its same for kids, they learn first by listeting and repeating after parents. In elementary school I absolutely hated English classes and was one of the worst. After first year of high school I started to watch movies in english and playing online games with voice chat. My english skill level went from one of the worst to top of my class with almost no effort. These days I dont have a problem even with heavier accents.

I guess depends on what your intended use is for the language, if you're doing it for fun reasons then yes, learning for speaking will help a lot. But if your plan is to get fully immersed into a language, then speaking to people on a daily basis in a certain language like English won't always yield the best results. I mean tbh, with all the slang these days, trying to learn English by just speaking to people will make you sound like you lived in a poverty stricken inner city your whole life.
2021-04-15 13:33

You dont have to only learn language by speaking but speaking helps a lot. Obviously if you want to study English you need to learn it properly. Or if you want to do translations, you need to learn terminology and other things. If you learn to understand spoken language, movies are very good start since they use mostly common phrases. Combined with subtitles in your native language at the start. Later you can use English subtitles only and final step is not using anything. Slang is not that heavy in most movies so you wont learn bad things. People who learn language can understand written stuff because its not that hard to learn word or sentences. Main problem comes when you need to listen to people who speak and decode what is actually being said. Translating/understanding is easy part. Thats why speaking and listening is important. After practicing your listening you will no longer think about what somebody is trying to say. You automatically pick it up as you do with your native language. Its like that with everything. No one is born with knowledge, you need to aquire it.

A few months ago, his Instagram Stories featured a photo of KZ mod in 1.6, which he played with electronic. And if we proceed from the fact that Denis does not know English well enough, they could speak Russian

idk i think ur baiting, but we obv have big history with russia, and a lot of the estonian population is russian, so its always been in the school system, but i think in most schools you can choose to learn either russian or german

Thanks for the proof. I was talking about it in a thread months ago and got flamed for not being able to show them links. They didn't believe me when I said I literally watched him talk in Russian lmao

He doesn't speak Russian, I asked LMBT directly
2021-02-21 11:23
As a Russian, I can say, that his Russian lvl is pretty bad, I dont think its enough for communication on Russian.
