Questions: who? what? where?
The audio for the lesson is available at the bottom of the screen under the blue button.
In the previous lesson we have learned to ask questions in Russian by changing the intonation in speaking and adding a question mark in writing. But often it is not enough, sometimes to ask a question you need to use the interrogative pronouns like “who?”, “what?”, “where?” and so on. We will be covering all types of pronouns in detail later, today let’s just learn a few more simple ways to ask questions.
Что? – What?
What is this?
Что ты хо́чешь?
[chto ty hó-cheesh]
What do you want?
What is going on?
Прости́те, что вы сказа́ли?
[pras-tée-tye, chto vy ska-zá-lee]
Pardon me, what did you say?
Кто? – Who?
Who is it?
Who is there?
Кто э́та де́вушка?
[kto é-ta dyé-vush-ka]
Who is this girl?
Кто э́то сде́лал?
[kto é-ta sdyé-lal]
Who did this?
Где? – Where?
Where is it?
Where are we?
Where is the toilet?
