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.
In this lesson, we'll learn about a place crucial to travelers in this modern age, the Internet Café. In Russian, Internet café is "internet cafe". Let`s break it down by syllable: in-ter-net ca-fe, internet cafe.
There are many Internet cafes located throughout the cities. So finding one shouldn't be a problem. However, so that things go smoothly once inside, I will guide you through the Internet cafe experience.
In Russia, when you walk into the store, approach the reception desk and tell them what you are here for. For example, you can just say: "Internet", which in Russian would be very easy - "Internet". Or, "Internet, pazhalusta", which is "Internet, please". Usually at the entrance you should just say how long you plan to work on the Internet. So, for example, you can say "10 minutes, 20 minutes" or whatever time you want. I'll give you an example for "10 minutes": "desyat' minut, pazhalusta" - "10 minutes, please", "dvatsat' minut, pazhalusta" - "20 minutes, please". So, usually you pay at the end of the Internet session.
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!
Internet, please……..Internet, pazhalusta
10 minutes……..desyat' minut
20 minutes……….dvatsat' minut
Alright, that's going to do for today. See you tomorrow, which in Russian is da zaftra!
