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?

« (У меня) кровь застыла в жилах - (My) blood ran cold | Main | Будет и на нашей улице праздник - our day will come »

Водой не разольёшь - thick as thieves

Водой не разольёшь - thick as thieves (= they are very good friends, it's impossible for them to fall out)

С тех пор как Наташа и Катя были вместе в лагере, их водой не разольёшь. = Since Natasha and Katya went to the camp together, they've been thick as thieves.


Literally this expression means "it's impossible to separate them even if you pour water on them".
