Category Archives: Huliganov's Russian Course

This contains the whole Huliganov Russian Course, from the beginning at the bottom to the end at the top, in order. This is intended to help people who have difficulty finding the parts they need on YouTube.

But you are advised to “click through” into the Youtube environment to watch, as there are comments on there by viewers, questions and answers, and sometimes errors spotted in these films by viewers, so that the complete experience of the course is actually on YouTube itself, by design. This is simply a simplified way of navigating it. If you wish to join the discussion either here or on there it is equally welcome – here the discussion will thread, there it will not, but what you write will probably be seen by more people.

RL102-21 Basic Russian Grammar – “with” for instrumentality and accompaniment


Original YT playout date: 10 January 2010
Duration: 24:15

“You waited a long time for this, longer than I promised. But this episode should show to you that the Huliganov Russian Course is not dead. The more people I get staying the course to this level, the more inclined I’ll be to do more. When 12 hours of solid work get me the same view count as something that basically needs an hour, you can see why I don’t do them that much, so it’s up to you. If you share the course, the course will grow. “”Simply as dat””, as the Professor might say…

Complete with a joke and a Russian song, hopefully you will say that the lesson is just as good as they used to be.

In answer to the requests for a translation:
1. Original, 2 literal, 3 free and rhyming (just).

В юности боль забывается скоро
In youth pain forgets itself soon
When you are young you get over things quickly

Слезы смахнув ты смеешься опять
Tears having-wiped-down you laugh again
Your eyes soon dry, you can smile once again

Время пройдет и всегда лишь такою
Time goes-by and always as such
As days go by I’ll recall how you look now

Буду тебя вспоминать
I-will you to-remember
That’s how for me you’ll remain

Счастье короткое бог нам отмерил
Happiness short God to-us measured-out
People are not put on earth to be happy

Непостоянна людская душа
Inconstant (is the) human soul
Or if they are not for long anyhow

Я ведь не зря в эту сказку не верил
I after-all not for-nothing in this fairy-tale not believed
You won’t fool me with “”happy ever after””

Слишком она хороша
Too good it is.
It’s just too good to be true

Как ты красива сегодня
How you beautiful today
My, you look lovely this evening

Нет в моем сердце ни боли, ни зла
There-is-not in my heart neither of pain, neither of bad
I don’t feel angry no more, all is fine

Как ты красива сегодня
How you beautiful today
My, you look lovely this evening

Как ты сегодня светла
How you today bright
I see your bright beauty shine

Может быть, время кого-то и лечит
May be, time somebody and heals
Maybe there are those who find time a healer

Только мне помощь его не нужна
Only to-me help of-it not needful
I don’t need healing, I’ll take any pain

Ты возвращайся, а я каждый вечер
You come back, and I each evening
You just come home to me, and like this evening

Буду тебя вспоминать
I-will you remember
For me you’ll always remain

One translation is if you want to understand how the Russian works, the other is to understand the sense of the song and sing it in English if you want to.

Hey Valeriy, sing my English words and have yourself a hit in the entire world. You deserve it.

Original YT playout date: 10 August 2009
Duration: 27:29

The 20th lesson in this series, the 30th Huliganov lesson in the Russian course, and we’re not even half way to what I have in mind. Sorry that this one is a bit disjointed, but there were interruptions and I had very little preparation time. Just wanted to go a step forward as there has been nothing for 3 months. Thanks for your patience.

RL 102-18 Locative Case prepositions – Part Two


Original YT playout date: 24 November 2008
Duration: 21:00

This is part two of two parts that the 18th lesson comes in. You may be surprised not to get much actual Russian in the first half – but more talk around the way prepositions work in Russian, but I believe it will help you if you take in what is being said here – more than that, you won’t get your head around Russian unless and until you get some of the ideas I’m talking about here. In the second half, which will be in a day or so for those following real time, we cover two locative case prepositions, a joke and a song.

General Introduction to Huliganov’s Russian Course


 

Original YT playout date: 20 September 2008
Duration: 27:10

“This is the introduction to the whole Russian course, which I didn’t do at the start as I never knew it would take off as it has done. I’ve added annotations to get people started to various start points in the course and the goldlist system, and to enlarge on the points raised.

The Facebook group by Lafeen Maggio has the URL:
http://www.new.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6549175221

The google group has the URL
http://groups.google.com/group/huliganov?pli=1

http://astore.amazon.com/wwwusenetposc-20 is the Amazon affiliates store containing my recommendations. If you buy there, it may not be the cheapest for you, I don’t need the 4% I get, but I will use it for competition prizes in the channel. You can see what is available there, and then buy it somewhere cheaper if you like. If I ever need your money, believe me, I’ll say so.

What I do need, on the other hand, from loyal viewers are the following things:

1. Please subscribe to the channel
2. Please give me hits
3. Please give me good ratings
4. Do write comments, including the correction of errors, answers to other contributors questions, not necessarily only praise for the videos, which is nice but discussion is even better!
5. Please support the other kinds of video on the channel – at least give the radio shows and the travel vids a try.
6. Please add the vids to your playlists and favorites
7. Please tell all your friends about the course – don’t keep it under your furry hat!
8. If you want me to address your college or society or do a guest lecture, then the expenses must be covered by you ahead of time. Let me know if you want me to speak and what the topic, duration and the audience will be.
9. Please understand that I am unlikely to have the time to pursue much by way of personal correspondence, and that questions asked in email, unless specifically marked private, will be assumed to be “”mailbag”” which I can read out and answer on air in future videos.
10. Please note that all films are embed enabled – you can use them in other sites not-for-profit, but you have to keep them in full, and not take the credit. They should link back here.

And finally, please consider one of the donation buttons on the site, such as the regular giving one below or the one-off paypal one at the sides, if you feel you had value from the course.

Many thanks and happy learning!” Read the rest of this entry

RL 102-17 Russian Basic Grammar #17/1


Original YT playout date: 16 August 2008
Duration: 22:52

This is what you’ve told me you wanted. At long last Huliganov responds to the demands, requests, threats and indecent proposals and produces the 17th lesson. It’s in 2 parts. The second part is very nearly ready, but just to keep the play out pattern going it’ll be three videos down the list. Ie, probably tomorrow, for those listening the first day this is up!

I introduce a whole new way of tackling the tricky area of prepositions in Russian. You’re gonna love this…

OK. The image promised is up on the facebook group. Please join the following:
