Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Elena: The typical greeting between men is a firm handshake while saying "Hello". Men can also shake hands with women, but it shouldn’t be strong. Women typically greet each other by just giving the appropriate greeting. Friends can greet each other with a kiss on the cheek. While you’re shaking hands, it is better to remove your gloves.

Outro

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Elena: Пока.

Hello Steve,


The choice depends on a person, but I personally would say "Privet" especialy with friends and relatives. 😄

I have never heard that "Privet" has a Ukrainian origin (Ukrainians say "Pryvit").
