Greetings are very important in Russian. Ways of greeting people and introducing oneself vary in different situations. In an official situation, you should only use здравствуйте and вы (the polite, official form of «you»). If the person you are talking to introduces himself or herself using his or her name and patronymic, do your best to pronounce it. That way, you will show your respect to him or her. In an informal situation (provided you are certain that it is informal), you can say ты and use a short form of the name without the patronymic.
Task 1. Listen to the dialogues and read the texts.
Task 2. Listen, repeat and then introduce yourself in Russian.
Task 3. Drag the words to complete the texts.
Some professions have genders in Russian. For example, a male athlete is спортсмен, while his female counterpart would be спортсменка. The -ка ending is used for specific types of female sports professionals as well. While specfic types of musicians follow this -ка ending rule for women, a major exception is the word musician itself—where either a man or woman of this profession would be known as музыкант. Office, public and social professions are gender—universal today (he/she директор, кассир, профессор). See the grammar table "Professions" to learn the Russian words for basic professions.
