Introduction to Russian:
Lesson 29

Let’s even learn another word. This word is a bit special, because it is the first formal word we will introduce to you:

Russian for sorry is извините.

If you dropped that те, you would have извини, which is the informal word for sorry.

We'll be using the formal one in this course, as it is more useful with strangers. For example, how would you ask:

Sorry, where is the airport?

Answer: Извините, где аэропорт?
