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?

« Nice to meet you. | Main | Happy birthday! »

I have a headache.

У меня болит голова.  [u me-NYA ba-LIT ga-la-VA] - I have a headache.


You can use the same expression for different pains and aches:

У меня болит живот. = I have a stomachache.

У меня болят зубы. = I have a toothache.

У меня болит нога. = My foot hurts.

Что у тебя болит? = Where does it hurt?


Literally the expression means "in me hurts the head"!
