Basic russian words and phrases pdf

Basic words in russian language. Russian Audio: To help you learn Russian this lesson has sound. Click the green icon to listen. (Help) Now that you understand the Russian letters and numbers, we will begin to learn some basic Russian phrases that you will commonly use as part of everyday communication. We will not attempt to introduce any grammar in this lesson. It is more important to learn some basic communication skills in Russian. Once you have a 'feel' for the language, you will find it easier to understand how the grammar works. When you were young, you learnt to speak before you learnt the grammar. We feel it is easier to learn Russian the same way, however don’t worry, we will cover grammar in later lessons. In this lesson you will learn the Russian language basics. When you are in Russia it is important to realise that Russians have two manners of speaking, formal or friendly. It would be considered slightly rude to use the wrong form in the wrong situation. Use the friendly (or familiar) form when you are speaking to someone you consider a friend. In situations where you have never met the person before you would use the formal form, for example in shops or with taxi drivers. You would also use the formal form as a sign of respect to teachers, or in places like business meetings. Keep this in mind as you work through these Russian lessons. This is much easier than it sounds, as there are only a couple of words that change. (Mainly the Russian word for “you”.) Please and Thank-You. The two most important words you will learn in Russian are please and thank-you. You can just add these to any sentence to make it more polite. Спасибо ("spa-see-ba") - Thank-You Пожалуйста ("pa-zhal-sta") - Please (and You're Welcome) The word Пожалуйста is also used to mean "You're Welcome", after somebody says thank-you. You should always say this after someone thanks you. Пожалуйста is pronounced a little different than it is written, you can basically forget the "уй". Yes and No. Two other very important Russian words are "Yes" and "No". Да ("da") - Yes Нет ("nyet") - No Saying Hello. When you are in Russia and you meet somebody, the first thing you will want to do is to say "hello". There are two forms of this word. Здравствуйте ("zdra-stvooy-tye") - Hello (Formal) Привет ("pree-vyet") - Hi (Informal) Здравствуйте may be a little difficult for you to pronounce at first, but it is the most common Russian greeting so you should try to practice it. Привет is also commonly used with friends. However, keep in mind that Привет is informal (much like "hi" in English), and should only be used with friends. If somebody says Привет to you, then it is normally safe to proceed in the friendly tone. Introducing Yourself. In order to introduce yourself, you may need the following phrases. Меня зовут . ("men-ya za-voot") - My name is . Как вас зовут? ("kak vas za-voot") - What is your name? Очень приятно ("och-en pree-yat-na") - Pleased to meet you. Note: The above 3 phrases are gramatically unusual. You should just learn the whole phrase, not the individual words. How are you? The most natural way to ask someone how they are in Russian is to ask: "how are things?" Как дела? - How are things? Хорошо спасибо - Good/Well thank-you Плохо - Bad Saying Good-Bye. There are also two words for saying good-bye. До свидания ("da-svee-da-nee-ye") - Good-bye. (The до is pronounced as if it is part of the next word) Пока ("pa-ka") - Bye (Informal, slang) You should generally use до свидания, which is appropriate in formal or informal situations. You may also hear people say Пока, but we suggest you only use it with friends. Asking about languages When you are asking a yes/no question in Russian, there is no difference between the question and the statement, except for the question mark. When you are speaking Russian you should ask questions in a different tone. The tone of your voice should rise if you are asking a question. If you are making a statement your tone will naturally fall. You may find that you actually do this in English without meaning to. If all else fails, put a real questioning expression on your face. Вы говорите по-английски? - Do you (formal) speak English? Вы говорите по-русски? - Do you (formal) speak Russian? Я говорю по-английски - I speak English Я говорю по-русски - I speak Russian Я понимаю - I understand Я не понимаю - I don't understand You may have noticed that the ending of the verb говорю (speak) changes depending on who the subject is. Don't worry too much about this yet. It will be covered in another lesson very soon. (lesson 5). Video Use this video to help you learn some Russian greetings. Try saying each phrase after you hear it. Then try reading the words with the sounds off. Take me to YouTube. You have now reached the end of your first lesson that involves useful Russian phrases. After some practice you should be comfortable introducing yourself.

Our lists include everything you need to know to greet people, ask for directions, order at a restaurant, shop, and get around. English Phrase Russian Phrase Pronunciation My name is Меня зовут MiNYA zaVUT What’s your name (formal)? Как тебя зовут? Kak tiBYA zaVUT? What’s your name (informal)? Как тебя зовут? Kak tiBYA zaVUT?

Как дела (informal) / Как у вас дела? (formal) Kak diLAH / Kak u vas diLAH? (*) Note that Простите? can be used if you didn’t quite catch what has been said. Without a question mark, Простите is used as "excuse me" if you need to leave or are trying to get past someone. The most common way to say hello is Здравствуйте, sometimes pronounced as Здрасте (ZDRAStye). While Здравствуйте is much more formal, the shortened version is used in situations when the speaker wants to be less formal, yet not quite informal. You may also hear Здрасте as part of several Russian idioms that all mean that something has arrived in a surprising and not always welcome way. Stick to Здравствуйте to be on the safe side. English Phrase Russian Phrase Pronunciation Hello Здравствуйте ZDRASTvooytye Good morning Доброе утро DOBraye OOTra Good day / good afternoon Добрый день DObry DYEN’ Good evening Добрый вечер DOBry VYEcher Hi, Hello Привет PreeVYET Hey Здорово (very informal) ZdaROva Goodbye До свидания Da sveeDAnya Good night Доброй ночи DOBray NOchi Good night Спокойной ночи SpaKOYnay NOchi Bye Пока PaKAH See you soon До встречи Da VSTRYEchi See you later / bye Счастливо! ShasLEEva! See you later / bye Удачи! OoDAHchi! Счастливо and Удачи are used interchangeably and literally mean "with happiness" (Счастливо) and "good luck" (Удачи). They are used in the same way as you would use the expression "good luck" in English. English Phrase Russian Phrase Pronunciation May I have the menu?
