3x365 Russian Words, Day 123, Review Day

Sometimes it is hard to see or hear your own progress and it helps to check that, yes, there have been at least some progress. Today I read through Top 100 Russian Words list and realized that apart from some Prepositions I actually know most of them. I can make may be 30 seconds of small talk already with my spouse in Russian, which is not nothing.

I picked up following rhyming two letter words for further review today from that list:

  1. по - along, according to - pitkin, mukaan

  2. до - to, up to, until - saakka

  3. Но - but - mutta. This one is used when two sentences contradict each other, if the are only contrasted with “but” then “А” is used.
