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.

We continue with Dative constructions, used much more in Russian than in Western European languages. Everyone in the room, says Huli, gets kicked into the dative case and nobody is the subject of the sentence, therefore they are impersonal, and in Russian that’s much more idiomatic.

On finishing the lesson, which needed at that time to be divided into two as otherwise the subtitles got compressed and he technology wasn’t available to me yet to sort that out, we then have a joke as usual and a particular favorite song.

The text for those who are interested, is as follows:

“Зажглась заря вечерняя
Над речкой голубой,
Прохладен вечер северный,
А мне тепло с гобой-

Припев: Веселая и грустная,
Всегда ты хороша,
Как наша песня русская
Как русская душа!

С тобою годы долгие
Без горя проживешь,
С тобою, синеокая,
Нигде не пропадешь.

Припев:

Погоним скоро улицей
Мы свадебных коней.
Ты станешь в жизни спутницей
И песнею моей.

Припев:

Зажглась заря вечерняя
Над речкой голубой,
Прохладен вечер северный,
А мне тепло с тобой.

Припев: Веселая и грустная,
Всегда ты хороша,
Как наша песня русская,
Как русская душа.”
This is “You are always beautiful” and the original is sung by the legend Evgeniy Belyaev of the Red Army Choir, look out for his work on YouTube.
