Lesson Transcript

Katyusha: Hi there, welcome to Russian weekly words. Today me Katyusha will mention some Russian words to you and I hope you can repeat after me or at least try and remember some. Now let’s have a look what topic we will have today. “Post office” - [почта - pochta]. Actually [почта - pochta] can be not only post office but all these letters and parcels like in cars and things you want to send can be called [почта - pochta]. [Ты бы не могла сходить на почту за меня? - Ty by ne magla skhadit' na pochtu za menya?] - “Could you go to post office for me?.”
Oh it’s very important and it’s [адрес - adres] - “address”. [Мне нужно адрес написать на конверте. - Mne nuzhna adres napisat' na kanverte.] - “I need a address to write on the envelope.”
[конверт - kanvert] - “envelope”. [Мне нужно несколько конвертов. - Mne nuzhna neskal'ka kanvertaf.] - “I need to get few envelopes.”
[письмо - pis`mo] - “letter”. Maybe you remember we mentioned about [письменный стол - pis`menyy stol] like “desk”, like “writing table” to write letters. So..[письмо - pis`mo]. [Я бы хотела написать письмо другу в Северную Америку. - Ya by khatela napisat' pis'mo drugu f Severnuyu Ameriku.] - “I would like to write a letter to my friend in North America.” I hope you still write letters. It’s really nice to get like real one, not email but nice card or letter.
[посылка - pasylka] - “parcel”. [Я часто отправляю посылки моим родителям. - Ya chasta atpravlyayu pasylki maim raditelyam.] - “I often send parcels to my parents.” It’s coming from [посылать - pasylat`] - “to send”.
[почтовая марка - pachtovaya marka] - “stamp”. [Я собираю почтовые марки. - Ya sabirayu pachtovyye marki.] - “I collect stamps.” Actually stamp is [марка - marka ] but because it’s something you put on the letter to send, we add adjective [почтовая - pachtovaya].
No! It’s the end again! I think the word you really remember very well is “the end”. Maybe I should also translate it into Russian? [Конец - kanets!] This is the end but not the end, so I hope I`ll see you some other time with Russian weekly words in other sessions. So.. Пока-пока [Paka-paka].
