Yura: Top 25 Russian Questions You Need to Know - Lesson 21: Are you hungry? in Russian (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 "Are you hungry?" In Russian this is
Svetlana: ты голоден?
The first word in the question is
Svetlana: ты
Yura: "meaning you" in English.
Svetlana: (Slow, by syllable) ты
Yura: Listen again and repeat.
Svetlana: ты
{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: голоден
Yura: meaning hungry .
Svetlana: (Slow, by syllable) голоден
Yura: Now repeat.
Svetlana: голоден
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Svetlana: ты голоден
{pause}
Yura: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Are you hungry??
Svetlana: да, немного голоден
Yura: "Yes, I'm a little hungry.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Svetlana: (Slow) да, немного голоден
{pause}
Yura: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Svetlana: да
Yura: meaning yes.
Svetlana: (Slow, by syllable) да
Yura: Now repeat
Svetlana: да
{Pause}
Yura: And next
Svetlana: немного
meaning a little .
Svetlana: (Slow, by syllable) немного
Yura: Now repeat.
Svetlana: немного
{Pause}
Yura: And after that
Svetlana: голоден
meaning hungry .
Svetlana: (Slow, by syllable) голоден
Yura: Now repeat.
Svetlana: голоден
{Pause}
Yura: Listen to the speaker say, Yes, I'm a little hungry., and then repeat.
Svetlana: да, немного голоден
{pause}
Yura: To make another phrase, replace a little with very.
Svetlana: очень
Yura: very
Svetlana: (slow) очень (regular) очень
Yura: Listen to the phrase again, this time with very
Svetlana: да, очень голоден
Yura: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace a little. Say Yes, I'm very hungry.
{pause}
Svetlana: да, очень голоден
Yura: To expand on the pattern, replace very with not really.
Svetlana: не очень
Yura: not really
Svetlana: (slow) не очень (regular) не очень
Yura: Listen to the phrase again, this time with not really
Svetlana: нет, не очень голоден
Yura: It mostly stays the same. Change yes to no, and replace the word for very. Say No, I'm not really hungry.
{pause}
Svetlana: нет, не очень голоден
Yura: To expand on the pattern, replace not really with not at all .
Svetlana: совсем не
Yura: not at all
Svetlana: (slow) совсем не (regular) совсем не
Yura: Listen to the phrase again, this time with not at all
Svetlana: нет, совсем не голоден
Yura: Replace the word for not really. Say No, I'm not hungry at all.
{pause}
Svetlana: нет, совсем не голоден
Now it's time for a quiz. Imagine you are visiting Russia and a someone asks you if you're hungry. You want to answer Yes, I'm a little hungry.. Respond to the question.
Svetlana: ты голоден? (five seconds) да, немного голоден
Yura: Now you want to say Yes, I'm very hungry. Respond to the question.
Svetlana: ты голоден? (five seconds) да, очень голоден
Yura: You want to say No, I'm not really hungry.. . Answer the speaker's question.
Svetlana: ты голоден? (five seconds) нет, не очень голоден
Yura: You want to say No, I'm not hungry at all. Respond to the question.
Svetlana: ты голоден? (five seconds) нет, совсем не голоден
Yura: You want to ask someone if they are hungry. Ask the question
(5 seconds)
Svetlana: ты голоден?
{pause}
Yura: Now it's time to answer the question with actual information about yourself.
Svetlana: ты голоден?

Perhaps it should be stated here that a female is голодна - not голоден ?


Speaking to a female: Ты голодна?


Female answers: Да, голодна.


Всем удачи!
