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?

« Can I come in? | Main | I miss you. »

Two tickets to Moscow, please.

Два билета до Москвы, пожалуйста.  [DVA bi-LE-ta da Mas-KVY, pa-ZHA-las-ta.] - Two tickets to Moscow, please.

Please, note that you say:

один билет

два, три, четыре билета

пять, шесть... билетов


We use the Genitive case (родительный падеж) after "до". That means that the ending for feminine nouns will be "и" or "ы":

Коломна - билет до Коломны

Вятка - билет до Вятки


The ending for masculine nouns will usually be "а":

Иркутстк - билет до Иркутска
