Introduction to Russian: 18

Russian for he is он.

Should you want to make it into she, you just add the letter that is pertaining to the feminine gender in Russian to the end: а. Thus:

she is она

Both words он and она have the same form which is:

To make you do into he/she does, you change шь to т. For example, говоришь would change into говорит.

So, for example, хочешь. You change шь into т and you get:

Russian for wants is хочет.

Try this yourself with changing говоришь (you speak) and понимаешь (you understand):

  1. Mind the fact that "speaks" takes on "т" in the ending.
  2. The adjective "Russian" describes language, thus it should be "русский".
  3. Use the word "может" for "can".
  4. Use the word "можно".
  5. Skip the words "is it", they are subsumed by "нужно".
  6. Remember that "тут" is positioned in the middle.
  7. Remember that "не" is separate from the verb.
  8. Skip the word "are". Remember that this is to a female.
  9. The word "физика" changes to "физики", which means "of Physics".
  10. Just transliterate it.
  11. Skip the word "is". Moreover, remember that Russian does not have articles, thus there is no "the" either.
  12. The word order will be "station not here".
  13. The word order for this is "what you want?"
  14. Use "извините" for sorry.
  15. The sentences are just two words long each.
  16. Use the contrasting "О" in the second sentence.
  17. Remember that "you understand" is "понимаешь".
  18. Use the pronoun "я" in both sentences. Remember that "yes" is "да". Also remember that "хорошо" will come right after the subject ("Я") in sentence.
  19. Remember the position of "тут" - it comes right after "Я". Also don't forget to use the contrasting and (which is "О") in the right place
  20. Remember that "Maths" is "математика". Apply the transformation of the last letter to "и" in order to get "of Maths".
  21. Use "можно" for "can I have?". This sentence is just two words long.
