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 today’s lesson we’ll introduce you to a phrase that will provide you with the tools to learn from the people around you. Now, a dictionary is a great idea, but don’t forget that you can use Russian to learn in a more fun and interactive way. For today's lesson we are going to cover “How do you say "something" in Russian?”. For today's lesson, let's use “milk” for that something.
The phrase “How do you say "milk" in Russian?” in Russian is “Kak budet “milk” pa-ruski?”. Let`s hear it one more time: Kak budet “milk” pa-ruski?. Kak budet “milk” pa-ruski?. Let`s break it down by syllable: Kak bu-det “milk” pa-rus-ki? Now, let`s hear it one more time: Kak budet “milk” pa-ruski? Kak budet “milk” pa-ruski?
The first word “kak” means “how”. Let`s break down this word and hear it one more time: kak and kak. This is followed by “budet”, which in English is “will be”, bu-det and budet. So to recap here, we have “kak budet”. Literally this means “how will be”. The last part of the phrase is “pa-ruski”, which in English is “in Russian”, pa-ruski.
So altogether we have “Kak budet “milk” pa-ruski?”. Literally this means “How will be “milk” in Russian?”.
You can also use this expression without using any English. To accomplish this you can use the expression “How do you say this in Russian?”. In Russian it is “Kak eta budet pa-ruski?”. Let`s break it down by syllable: Kak eta bu-det pa-rus-ki? Now, let`s hear it once again: Kak eta budet pa-rus-ki?
The first word “kak” means “how”. Let`s break down this word and hear it one more time: kak and kak. This is followed by “eta”, which in English is “this”, eta, e-ta.
So to recap here, we have “kak eta”. Literally this means “how this”.
Let's take a look at the next “budet”, which means “will be”: bu-det and budet.
The last phrase is “pa-ruski”, which in English is “in Russian”. So altogether we have “Kak eta budet pa-ruski?”. Literally this means “How this will be in Russian?”.
To ask how to say “How do you say that in Russian?” simply substitute the word “that” – “eta” for “this” – “to”.
There are many words in Russian with difficult pronunciation. And you may not clearly understand the answer to a question. Then, to ask a person to repeat the word or phrase you should use “Paftarite, pazhalusta”, which in English literally means “Repeat it, please”. Paftarite, pazhalusta.
If you talk to your friend you can say “yeshcho ras”, yeshcho ras which means “once again”. Yet in case of the latter phrase don’t forget about friendly intonation and a smile, otherwise it can sound a bit rude.
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!
How do you say "milk" in Russian?……..Kak budet “milk” pa-ruski?
How do you say this in Russian?……..Kak eta budet pa-ruski?
Alright, that's going to do for today. See you tomorrow, which in Russian is da zaftra!

On the PDF, these are in the wrong order. "1" should be "2" and "2" should be "1"..

Hello Гев,


The question " Как сказать по-русски....?" is totally OK.

Greetings!


Is the question Как сказать по-русски? just as acceptable? Which would be more common?


Спасибо!
