Introduction to Russian: 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:

  1. The word order will be "station not here".
  2. The word order for this is "what you want?"
  3. Use "извините" for sorry.
  4. The sentences are just two words long each.
  5. Use the contrasting "О" in the second sentence.
  6. Remember that "you understand" is "понимаешь".
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Remember that "Maths" is "математика". Apply the transformation of the last letter to "и" in order to get "of Maths".
  10. Use "можно" for "can I have?". This sentence is just two words long.
