How can I say, "As you know" and "By the way"?
For example, I'd like to say:
- As you know, my name is __.
- By the way, what city do you live in?
1.1. As you know, my name is___. Kak ty znAesh, mAyo EEmya ___.
We don't have to use the verb 'to be' in this sentence.
1.2. As you know, my name is___. Kak ty znAesh, menYA zavUt ___.
The pronoun 'you' in Russian has two meanings 'ty' or 'vy'. 'Ty' is used when children, friends and people of the same age (who know each other quite well) talk to each other. You can use 'ty' if you talk to your parents or grandparents.
But for people who are older than you are or of the same age but you don't know them very well, you should say 'vy'.
2. By the way, what city do you live in? - Da, a v kAkom gOrode ty zhivYOsh?
