Yeah I can understand that part. Some words don't sound distinct enough. Like the YES marker, in Russian it's DA, it almost gets lost pronouncing.

But then for sit, I like the Russian version better. I'm just more comfortable speaking russian, like I talk to him in Russian and using English for commands and switching back and forth would be confusing for me.
