девушка  [DE-vush-ka] (feminine noun) – a girl, a girlfriend

Эта девушка живёт недалеко отсюда. = This girl lives not far from here.

Я хочу познакомить тебя с моей девушкой. = I'd like you to meet my girlfriend.


The word "девушка" is used for teenagers or young women and not for little girls. In this case you use the word "девочка".


You can also use the word to address a girl you don't know. Девушка! Вы уронили кошелёк! = Excuse me! You've dropped your wallet!
