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?

« - How are you? - Fine, and you? | Main | Excuse me, could you tell me... »

Sorry, I don't understand.

Извините, я не понимаю. [Iz-vi-NI-te, ya ne pa-ni-MA-yu] = Sorry, I don't understand.


If you address someone "ты" (informally), you would say "извини" instead of "извините".
