055 – Wishes and congratulations

The audio for the lesson is available at the bottom of the screen under the blue button.

Let’s pause with the Dative case for today and learn a few useful Russian phrases. After this vocabulary lesson you’ll be able to congratulate (поздра́вить) your friends in Russian or to tell them ‘Bon appetit!’. Listen to the audio and repeat after it:

Поздравля́ю!
Congratulations!
(lit. – I congratulate you)

Поздравля́ю с днём рожде́ния!
Happy birthday!
(lit. – I congratulate you with the day of birth)

С днём рожде́ния!
Happy birthday!
(lit. – With the day of birth)

С но́вым го́дом!
Happy New Year!
(lit. – With new year)

Счастли́вого Рождества́!
Merry Christmas!

Наилу́чшие пожела́ния!
Best wishes!

Прия́тного аппети́та!
Bon appetit!

Ва́ше здоро́вье!
Cheers!
(lit. – Your health)

Уда́чи!
Good luck!

If somebody sneezes you can say:

Будь здоро́в! – Bless you!
(informal, talking to a man)

Будь здоро́ва! – Bless you!
(informal, talking to a woman)

Будьте здоро́вы! – Bless you!
(formal)

This phrase literally means “be healthy!”.
