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?

« You are welcome. | Main | What time is the class? »


Поздравляю!  [pa-zdrav-LYA-yu] - Congratulations!


- Я сдал экзамен! - Молодец, поздравляю! = - I've passed the exam! - Well done, congratulations!


"Поздравляю" can also be used with different holidays. For example, we can say:

Поздравляю с Новым годом! = Happy New Year!

Поздравляю с днём рождения! = Happy birthday!

In this case it's used with "с" and a noun in the Instrumental case (творительный падеж).
