The aim of our twelfth Russian lesson is just to let you practice the language concepts that you already know. It is really a review lesson, althought we may introduce some vocabulary, and show you some different ways of using it. We will avoid introducing new grammar in this lesson.

This Russian language lesson will be based on examples. We will try to use some Russian phrases and sentences that you might see in real situations. Review each Russian phrase or sentence to make sure that you understand both the vocabulary and the structure of the sentence used. Take particular notice of the use of the four cases that we have learnt so far.

Russian Names
Note the use of the accusative case for pronouns in this construction.

Как вас зовут? – What is your name?

Как её зовут? – What is her name?

Её зовут Алёна – Her name is Alyona.

Note: the form in brackets is the diminutive form of the name. This is like a pet name. (For example in English ‘William’ is also ‘Will’). There are many diminuatives for each Russian name and they are commonly used. The diminuative is a more personal, or tender form, and should only be used when you are in close firendship. The exception is when a person introduces themself using this form.
