Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody! It’s me Katya from RussianPod101.com. Привет! (Privet!) Our topic is 10 words for connecting thoughts. I’m getting connected with you. Can you feel it? Well, let’s begin!
1. потом (patom) “then”
“First, we went to a coffee shop, and then we went to the supermarket.” Сначала мы пошли в кафетерий, а потом в супермаркет. (Snachala my pashli f kafeteriy, a patom f supermarket.)
2. но (no) “however, but”
“You can do whatever you want; however, don't forget I'm the boss.” Вы можете делать всё, что вам захочется, но не забывайте, что я босс. (Vy mozhete delat' fsyo, shto vam zakhochetsa, no ne zabyvayte, shto ya boss.)
3. тем временем (tem vremenem) “meanwhile”
“Meanwhile, I'm having my tea.” Тем временем я попиваю чай. (Tem vremenem ya papivayu chay.)
4. с другой стороны (s drugoy starany) “on the other hand”
“It's a difficult task, but on the other hand, it's a good experience for you.” Это тяжёлое задание, но, с другой стороны, это хороший опыт для тебя. (Eta tyazholaye zadaniye, no, s drugoy starany, eta kharoshyy opyt dlya tebya.)
5. более того (boleye tavo) “moreover”
“Cycling is good for your health. Moreover, it doesn't pollute the air.” Катание на велосипеде очень полезно для вашего здоровья. Более того, оно не загрязняет окружающую среду. (Kataniye na velasipede ochen' palezna dlya vasheva zdarov'ya. Boleye tavo, ano ne zagryaznyayet akruzhayushchuyu sredu.)
6. а также (a takzhe) “and, also”
“As a hobby, I do dancing, skiing… also I do flower arrangements.” Из хобби я занимаюсь танцами, катанием на лыжах... а также флористикой. (Is hobbi ya zanimayus' tantsami, kataniyem na lyzhakh... a takzhe flaristikay.)
Do you like flower arrangement? Well, when I did, I really feel like this flower in my hands, it has another life because it’s already cut, and you know it will fade by the time so you are giving it like a fresh life to look as beautiful as possible for its last minutes and last days so that’s why I love flower arrangement.
7. вместо (vmesta) “instead”
“Instead of doing my homework, I decided to browse the internet.” Вместо того, чтобы делать домашнее задание, я решила посидеть в интернете. (Vmesta tavo, shtoby delat' damashneye zadaniye, ya reshyla pasidet' v internete.)
Bad example, very bad example from bad Katya. Don’t do that!
8. следовательно (sledavatel'na) “therefore”
The next word is следовательно (sledavatel'na) “therefore”.
“There was a traffic jam; therefore, I was late for work.” На дорогах были пробки, следовательно, я опоздала на работу. (Na darogakh byli propki, sledavatel'na, ya apazdala na rabotu.)
9. в конце концов (f kantse kantsof) “finally”
“Finally, I could remember a few words in Russian.” В конце концов, я смог запомнить пару слов по-русски. (F kantse kantsof, ya smok zapomnit' paru slof pa-russki.)
10. кроме того (krome tavo) “besides”
Кроме оплаты за обучение, вам нужно ещё посетить лекции, чтобы получить диплом. (Krome aplaty za abucheniye, vam nuzhna eshcho pasetit' lektsyi, shtoby paluchit' diplom.) “Besides paying school fees, you also need to attend classes in order to get your diploma.”
So we just learned 10 words for connecting thoughts; следовательно (sledavatel'na), your Russian should be more natural and sound great! So feel free to make new sentences with these words and leave it in the comments. I’ll be looking forward for it. Stay tuned to the RussianPod101.com and don’t forget to subscribe. Пока-пока!
