Introduction to Russian:
Lesson 5

Let’s learn a Russian word for you. I say 'a' because it is the informal word for you (a bit like thou in English):

The Russian word for informal you is ты.

This letter ы is quite interesting, isn't it?

If you need to ask a question, you just say it as a statement and raise your intonation. People informally do that in English too, for example, in sentences you hungry?. Russians always do that.

How would you say:

You are from England.

Answer: Ты из Англии.
