There are several ways to say “Hello” on Russian language. I will tell you about the most popular ones.
- Привет – Very popular word but very informal. It’s a good way to geet members of your family or your friends. Some people can also make up different forms from this word: “Приветик”, “Приветики”, “Приветы”, “Прива”, “Приветище”
- Здравствуй / Здравствуйтe – First one sound formal, but with ending “те” it’s sounds even more formal, because become plural and we using it for talk to people who we don’t know and who older then we for show our respect.
Russian pronunciation pretty easy compare with english one. Russian words are pronounced almost the same like spelled. But there are few rules which are good to know for be able to read words corect.
