Lesson 2 - Greetings in Russian

 

The most typical greetings in Russian are :

Привет - Hi (unofficial)

Приветик (mostly used by girls) - Hi

Здравствуйте - Hello (official)

Доброе утро! - Good Morning!

Добрый день! - Good Afternoon!

Добрый вечер! - Good Evening!

 

It's a good thing to ask people how they're doing:

Formal:

Как у вас дела? - How are you doing?

Как поживаете? - How have you been?

Какие у вас новости? - What's the news?

Чем вы занимаетесь? - What have you been doing?

 

Informal:

Как у тебя дела? - How are you doing?

or simply - Как дела? - How are you?

Как поживаешь? - How have you been?

Какие новости? - What's the news?

Чем занимаешься? (Чем занимаетесь? - if addressing more than one) -

What have you been doing?

 

Asking about your friend's family:

Как семья? - How's your family?

Как родители? - How are your parents?

 

And about other things:

Как бизнес? - How's business?

Как самочувствие? How do you feel?

If you haven't met your friend for a lot time you might say:

Сколько лет, сколько зим! Haven't seen you for ages!
