Difficult...to speak...in native language.....
Me(or I): "Sveta has a girl."
Mom: "What does 'has a girl' mean?"
Me: "I don't know how else to say that Sveta has a girl. Knows a girl (but that doesn't imply any relationship to the situation)? Has a friend (But that would require further information to clarify that the friend is female and not male)?
Mom: "Ah. Your English is getting rusty perhaps."
