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?

« What's new? | Main | Merry Christmas! »

Happy New Year!

С Новым годом!  [S NO-vym GO-dam] - Happy New Year!


- С Новым годом Вас! = Happy New Year!

- Вас также! = Same to you!


"С Новым годом" is actually part of the phrase "Поздравляю с Новым годом!", and literally means "Congratulations on the New year". Before the 1st of January we say "С наступающим!" = Happy coming New Year!
