Hi,

How would you express the phrase "to take something seriously" in Russian? For example, "I can't take you seriously" or "He doesn't take his job seriously". Would it be something along the lines of "принимать серёзно"?

Thanks!

    In this context the verb "относиться" means "to treat". Please see the links below.

    I can't take you seriously - Я не могу к тебе серьёзно относиться.
    He doesn't take his job seriously - Он несерьёзно относится к своей работе.
