Lesson Transcript

Hello and welcome to Russian Survival Phrases. This course is designed to equip you with the language skills and knowledge to enable you to get the most out of your visit to Russia. So join us for Russian Survival phrases. You will be surprised at how far a little Russian will go.
This lesson is very straight forward as we are going to cover counting zero through ten. Let`s jump right in.
“One”, masculine - adin , feminine - adna, neutral - adno
“Two”, masculine - dva , feminine - dve,
“Three” - tri
“Four” - chetyre
“Five” - pyat`
“Six” - shest`
“Seven” - sem`
“Eight” - vosem`
“Nine” - devyat`
“Ten” - desyat`
“Zero” - nol`
Counting things in Russian is very straight forward as the number precedes the thing. For example: one person is “adin chelavek”. The number comes first followed by the thing – in this case “people”. In Russian nouns have singular and plural forms. Therefore, if there are two people, we say “dva chelaveka”. In Russian nouns also have gender: masculine, feminine and neutral. Some of the numbers change according to gender, as you may have noticed. The ends of nouns also change depending of number it is used with. For example:
“adin mushchina” – one man – is masculine.
“adna zhenshchina” – one woman – is feminine.
“adno akno” – one window – is neutral.
“dva mushchiny” – two men
“dve zhenshchiny” – two women
“dva akna” – two windows
Basically, you can use the same number starting from three in Russian regardless of gender. So you can say.
“tri mushchiny”
“tri zhenshchiny”
“tri akna”
You’ll notice that in romanization the apostrophe is used to indicate the soft sign. This sign is used after the consonants to soften them. It does not exist in English. But it resembles to a very short “e” sound in the English word “easy?”. This sign can be found from number five to number ten.
Ok, to close out today`s lesson we'd like for you to practice what we`d just learnt. I will provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you are responsible for saying it aloud. You'll have a few seconds before I`ll give you the answer. Udachi! That means “good luck”! Ok, here we go!
“One” - adin
“Two” - dva
“Three” - tri
“Four” - chetyre
“Five” - pyat`
“Six” - shest`
“Seven” - sem`
“Eight” - vosem`
“Nine” - devyat`
“Ten” - desyat`
“Zero” - nol`
“One” feminine - adna
“Two” feminine - dve
“One” neutral - adno
Alright, that's going to do for today. See you tomorrow, which in Russian is da zaftra!
