Lesson Transcript

Yura: Top 25 Russian Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 10: How is the Russian food? (In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Russian learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.)
In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question ""How is it? (food)"" In Russian this is
Svetlana: как тебе?
The first word in the question is
Svetlana: как
Yura: ""meaning how"" in English.
Svetlana: (Slow, by syllable) как
Yura: Listen again and repeat.
Svetlana: как
{Pause}
Yura: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Svetlana: тебе
Yura: meaning you.
Svetlana: (Slow, by syllable) тебе
Yura: Now repeat.
Svetlana: тебе
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.

{pause}

{pause}
Yura: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:

{pause}
Yura: To use a different phrase, replace delicious with not delicious .
Svetlana: невскусно
Yura: not delicious
Svetlana: (slow) невскусно (regular) невскусно
Yura: Listen to the phrase again, this time with not delicious
Svetlana: невскусно
Yura: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace delicious. Say It's not delicious
{pause}
Svetlana: невскусно
Yura: To expand on the pattern, replace not delicious with sour.
Svetlana: кисло
Yura: sour
Svetlana: (slow) кисло (regular) кисло
Yura: Listen to the phrase again, this time with sour
Svetlana: кисло
Yura: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the {lang} for not delicious . Say It's sour

Yura: To expand on the pattern, replace sour with tasteless.
Svetlana: безвкуснo
Yura: tasteless
Svetlana: (slow) безвкуснo (regular) безвкуснo
Yura: Listen to the phrase again, this time with tasteless
Svetlana: безвкуснo
Yura: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace the {lang} for sour. Say It's tasteless

Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Russia and someone asks you your opinion on the food you're eating. You want to say it's delicious. Respond to the question.
