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.
Today we're going to continue on with counting as we cover 11-100.
Let`s just quickly review 1-10.
adin
dva
tri
chetyre
pyat`
shest`
sem`
vosem`
devyat`
desyat`
In Russian counting from 11-20 is also very straightforward so let's jump right in:
11 - adinatsat'
12 - dvenatsat'
13 - trinatsat'
14 - chetyrnatsat'
15 - pyatnatsat'
16 - shestnatsat'
17 - semnatsat'
18 - vasemnatsat'
19 - devyatnatsat'
20 - dvatsat'
Numbers from 21-99 are formed by combining numbers we have already covered.
For example, if you want to say 21 just add one which is “adin” to twenty which is “dvatsat'”, altogether we have “dvatsat' adin”.
So, now we will count from 30-90 by tens:
30 - tritsat'
40 - sorak
50 - pyat'desyat
60 - shest'desyat
70 - sem'desyat
80 - vosem'desyat
90 - devyanosta
Finally we have the number for 100 which is sto. Of course, while you are in Russia, you might want to do some shopping. The currency in Russia is ruble. “One ruble” in Russian is “adin rybl`”. From 2-4 is “rublya”. For example: “dva rublya” (two rubles), “tri rublya” (three rubles), “chetyre rublya” (four rubles). From 5-21 is “rubley”. For example: “pyat` rubley” (five rubles), “shest` rubley” (six rubles) etc. Then just apply the same pattern we gave for 1, then 2-4. And so you have “dvatsat' dva rublya”, which is “22 rubles”, “dvatsat' pyat` rubley” which is “25 rubles”. Don`t forget to check the PDF for detailed explanations.
Alright, that's going to do for today. See you tomorrow, which in Russian is da zaftra!

The POD is a little too fast for my taste. I don't find the time to repeat the numbers and listen to the correct pronunciation.

Hey Michael,

Thank you for your comment.

I totally agree that it takes awhile before you can easily use numbers and calculations in foreign language.

We will take your comment in consideration and try to suggest other lessons and excercises to practise new material. However we don't want to limit you choise. We let you choose the topic you'd like to comprehend according to your language level. Meanwhile we can suggest you to refer to Absolute beginner series Season 1, Lesson 22 "telling the time in Russian" and Survival phrase Series, Lesson 20 "Currency". Please, go ahead and check other lessons that might be interesting for you.

Hope it was helpfull.

Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

Numbers in any foreign language are 'easy' but they require huge amounts of practice before you can use them fluently. More practice is helpful. Just mention at the end of the pod or in the lesson notes which other lessons give you numbers practice (at the train, shopping, getting directions, opening a bank account, getting caught speeding in Russia, or whatever).
