I am curious how I write correctly that I exercise the sport тхэквондо (russian spelling for: "taekwondo"?)? Which verb is most correct?

I am also curious how Hebrew is spelled correctly (еврейский?).

  • Do you mean Hebrew language or Hebrew people? These are different words in Russian.

Я занимаюсь тхэквондо.

In case of other kinds of sports (like ball games as opposed to wrestling) it is also possible to use the verb "играть" (я играю в футбол, в шахматы). The spelling "тхэквондо" comes from strict rules of Korean-to-Russian practical transcription system, not from English version of the word.

еврейский (adjective)

еврей (noun; nationality)

  • "Hebrew" is not nationality, it's at best "ethnicity". Oct 3 '15 at 17:28
