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?

« Excuse me, can I pass through? | Main | Could you speak slower, please? »

Turn right (left).

Поверните направо (налево).  [Pa-ver-NI-te na-PRA-va (na-LE-va)] - Turn right (left).

Идите прямо, пока не увидите автобусную остановку. Сразу после автобусной остановки поверните налево. = Go straight till you see a bus stop. Just after the bus stop turn left.


This phrase should be used with people you address "Вы". If you address someone "ты", you should use "поверни" instead of "поверните".
