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?

« Bless you! | Main | What's new? »


Добро пожаловать!  [dab-RO pa-ZHA-la-vat'] - Welcome!

Добро пожаловать в Москву! = Welcome to Moscow!

Добро пожаловать на наш сайт, посвящённый русской музыке! = Welcome to out website dedicated to Russian music!


"Пожаловать" means "to come, to arrive (about guests)", so literally we are wishing our guests a happy arrival.
