It's the first lesson for all of my friends learning Russian. Today you will not be tortued with the alphabet or grammar. As a starter we'll list top 10 things which
foreigners usually associate with Russia. First I'll propose a shortcut of 5 words.
1). водка = vodka
That's a pity that this word always comes first.
Note that it's spelled almost as "вода" which means "water".
And some russians really can drink as much vodka as water.
2). коммунизм = communism
It's the ill-fame which we have inherited from out parents.
3). газ = gas (natural gas)
I think all europeans do remember last winter gas scandal. No comments.
4). нефть = oil
Yes, we have a lot! And do you know where?
5). Сибирь = Siberia
Nowdays it's not only the name of a region in the East of Russia,
but the name of an airline company as well.
Let's summarize what we'v got here:
So my top-5 list is completed. Now it's your turn to point out 5 most remarkable
things about Russia.
