Introduction to Russian:
Lesson 7

Finally let's learn how to deny and negate things. You have two words in English: no and not. In Russian you have it backwards because:

The word for no is нет and the word for not is не.

So in English you add a t to make no into not, in Russian you remove that т instead.

Just remember the Russian word for no which is нет to remember both words.

When you use the word for not, you have to say it before the verb. Unlike in English, you say I not am from England or I not see, I not understand and so on.

How would you say:

It is not from England.
