Looking for a Russian teacher?

Word in focus

чувак  [choo-VAK] (masculine noun) – dude, man, guy

А кто этот чувак? Ты его раньше здесь видел? = Who is that guy? Have you seen him here before?

У тебя что, чувак, совсем крыша поехала? =  Dude, are you nuts?

« опрометчивый - reckless | Main | предстоящий - forthcoming »

тачка - a car (informal)

тачка  [TACH-ka] (feminine noun) – a car (informal)

Ты видел, какую Серёга крутую тачку купил? = Have you seen the cool car Seryoga bought?


This word is only used in INFORMAL Russian. It was originally the word for a wheelbarrow (and is still used in this sense), but it is also a slang word for a car.
