Russian - Please, You're Welcome


Remember that to say thank you in Russian, you say Спасибо (Spasibo).

To say please in Russian is пожалуйста (pozhaluysta) - Sounds like pah-zha-lih-stah. - 文A
The "zha" sound is like the sound the "s" makes in the word "vision".

And to say you're welcome, you say the exact same word! пожалуйста (pozhaluysta) - Sounds like pah-zha-lih-stah. - 文A

Russian - Very good thanks, and you?

We just learned to say How are you? in Russian, Как дела? (kak dela)

and Very good thanks is Спасибо Хорошо (Spasibo khorosho)

To be polite you should also ask how the other person is doing.

In Russian sometimes you use different words if the person is a friend or a stranger, or a teacher or someone you are showing respect to.

If you are talking to a friend, you say:

And you? - А вы? (A vy?) - sounds like ah-vee - 文A

If you are talking to a stranger or a teacher you might say:

And you? - А ты? (A ty?) - sounds like ah-tee - 文A

Russian - How are you?


We just learned some greetings in Russian, like Привет (privet), Здравствуй (Zdravstvuy) and Доброе утро (Dobroye utro), Добрый день (Dobryy den), Добрый вечер (Dobryy vecher), Доброй ночи (Dobroy nochi).

If you want to say How are you? in Russian, you would say:

Как дела? (kak dela) - sounds like kah-k dee-lah - 文A

To respond and say Very good thanks, you would say:

Спасибо Хорошо (Spasibo khorosho) - sounds like spah-ee-see-bah kha-dah-shoh. - 文A

The "X" in Russian sounds kind of like the sound a cat makes when hissing.

Russian - Hello and Goodbye


We've now learned a whole year of Norwegian!
Wow!

Let's try another language now, how about Russian?

This is the language of the people of Russia, where over 250 million people speak the language.
A lot of the other countries near Russia also speak it, like Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, and a bunch of other countries.

Russia uses a different alphabet than English, using letters called Cyrillic.

There are some letters that look and sound almost the same, like A and T.
But there are some that are very different like the letter Я which sounds like "ya" or the letter Ш that sounds like "sh"
Let's learn how to say hello and goodbye in Russian!

There are a few ways to say Hello.

Hi - Привет (privet) - Sounds like p-dee-v-yet
This is like saying Hi to your friends.

Hello - Здравствуй (Zdravstvuy) - Sounds like z-d-rah-v-st-voo-ee
This is like saying hello to a grownup, or someone you are meeting for the first time.

There are a few ways to say Goodbye also.

Bye - Пока (poka) - Sounds like pah-kah
This is just like saying bye to your friends.

Good Bye - до свидания (do svidaniya) - Sounds like dah s-vee-dah-n-yah
This is like saying goodbye to people you don't know really well, or to grownups to show respect.
