RL101 – 5 Revision of the first 17 letters


With 171 likes to 3 dislikes at the time of posting this up to Huliganov.tv blog, this remains one of my most popular pieces. The revision of the first half of the Russian alphabet contains already a list of words, 31 in total, using the letters learned so far, unlike the previous lessons, which concentrated on letter only.

The joke “I spoil that woman” and the song Katiusha sung by myself and Elena have also elicited flattering comments from the viewership.

The word-list for this lesson is as follows, in alphabetical order of both languages:

адвокат lawyer café кафе
вот here is country страна
где where daddy папа
город town, city garden, orchard сад
да yes glass стакан
дерево tree he он
дом house, home here is вот
кафе café house, home дом
кот tomcat it оно
кто who juice сок
мама mother just, straight on просто
медсестра nurse lawyer адвокат
метро underground train mother мама
налево on the left no нет
направо on the right not не
не not nurse медсестра
нет no on the left налево
окно window on the right направо
он he she она
она she sister сестра
оно it soldier солдат
папа daddy there там
правда truth, true toilet туалет
просто just, straight on tomcat кот
сад garden, orchard town, city город
сестра sister tree дерево
сок juice truth, true правда
солдат soldier underground train метро
стакан glass where где
страна country who кто
там there window окно
туалет toilet yes да

The start of what has in fact been the most popular thing I’ve ever done on the internet, this is the first ever lesson of Russian in the cult course done as Viktor Dmitrievitch Huliganov.

Here in Huliganov.tv these are going to have their own section, and each of the films will have additional notes.

The vocab of each will be listed here, and you’ll be able to ask your questions in the comments sections also, and get maybe a longer answer than the ones that it’s possible to get in the original YT format.

This was only actually going to be a series of lessons on the Russian alphabet, as the vehicle not only for Russian but for other languages also, but in the course of the ten lessons, in which there are hardly any Russian words as such in  the first few lessons, people started asking for real full Russian lessons, which is what then happens in RL102.

In this lesson no actual letters are given, only info on the historical background of Cyrillics. It still got to over 60,000 views! People simply love the mix of serious linguistic education with humour, so that’s what I tried to do with this course, each lesson of which contains some didactic material and then a joke and a song.

Enjoy!
