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?

« Just a moment! | Main | Excuse me, could you do me a favor? »

Same to you! 

И Вас также! [i VAS TAK-zhe] - Same to you!


- С Новым годом! = Happy New Year!

- И Вас также! = Same to you!


You can use this reply for any holiday, for example, Christmas, Women's Day...


This phrase is used with people that you address "Вы" (formally). If you address someone "ты" (informally), you should say "И тебя также!"
