Speak Russian Words and Sentences like you are Russian

In this post I would like to teach you some of the most commonly used Russian words and phrases in our everyday life. It is very important to understand these easy sentences. Let's say you want to hear a voice of a woman you are corresponding with, then this little guide will help you. Of course, it is better to use a Russian translation service, but you can avoid this by using my notes below.
By the way, Russian reading is very easy to learn. I will talk about it in my next post, so check back later. If you have any comments, please tell me your opinion.


A word in brackets is a pronunciation.

A little apostrophe in a word in brackets after a vowel tells you to put a stress at that syllable.

An apostrophe after the consonant means that it should be soft.

Let's go, let's learn some Russian.

The most common Russian salutation is: Hi - Привет -Privet - [preeve't];

You want to explain that it's you who are calling her: This is Peter - Это Петер - Eto Peter - [e'to Peter];

After that you want to ask a person how is she doing: Как Дела - Kak Dela - [kak Dela'];

To answer this question: Fine - Хорошо - Horosho - [kharasho'] or Excellent - Отлично - Otlichno - [atlee'chna] or Normal - Нормально - Normalno - [Narma'l'na] or Not so good - Не очень - Ne ochen - [nee o'chen'];

Then you would probably like to say Thank you - Спасибо - Spasibo - [spasee'ba];

To make your phone conversation flow you would ask: What did you do today - Чем занималась сегодня - Chem zanimalas segodnja - [chem zaneema'las' sego'dnja];

After this question, you most likely won't understand her answer, but it's OK, it is your first time. And all you wanted to do is to hear and enjoy a lady's voice, remember?

To say Bye-Bye use До свидания - Do svidanija - [da sveeda'neeja] which is more official, or you can say Пока - Poka - [paka'] people usually say this to their friends, relatives and other close people.

If you want to speak on some serious topics, then contact Russian translator.

Have a good one...
