Learning Russian?

January 23, 2008

Ahead of my trip to Ukraine in February, I’ve been trying to learn some Russian, and to my surprise, it’s working. Some essential phrases I’ve mastered to date:

Привет – privyet – hi
Меня зовут Пит – meenya zavut peet – my name is pete
Я люблю пиво – Ya lublu pivo – i love beer
Я хочу пиво – Ya hachu pivo – i want a beer
Сколько стоит пиво? – skolko stoet pivo – how much does beer cost
Пора пить пиво – pora peet pivo – time to drink a beer
У меня (нет) подруга – ooh meenyah (nyet) podruga – i have (no) girlfriend
Спасибо – spasebo – thank you
До свидания – da svedaneyah – goodbye

Some useful/fun learning Russian resources I’ve found to date, a phrases site with spoken pronunciation, a learning the alphabet and some cognates site, and some hilarious Youtube-based guy extolling the benefit(s) of learning Russian (haha)
