Short Dialogs and Useful Patterns


Recommended Posts


Contextual dialogs are often used on various courses, because it is the most effective method to memorize common words and phrases. Dialogs can be learned by heart. It is like a basic structure. If you memorize a dialog, then you may insert different words in it, depending upon the situation.

I want you to offer such scenario:

First of all, you read and translate unknown words, check pronunciation (for this I will give Romaic transliteration). It would be excellent if somebody could help you with a dialog. If you have such person, so ask him or her to take any role. Nobody wants to study Russian? At any rate, do not get disappointed and learn both roles. I mean speech of the first and second character.

And finally, improvise using new phrases. Insert another words in the sentences. This way of learning spoken Russian is very easy and sometimes even funny. Try to reproduce short dialogs in your free time. So go on now.

Dialog #1

A: What are you planning to do for your holiday?

Что ты собираешься делать во время отпуска?

Čto ty sobiraeš´sâ delat´ vo vremâ otpuska?

B: I have not yet made up my mind. If the weather is fine, I will go to the seaside for two or three weeks. And what are your plans?

Я еще не решил. Если погода будет хорошая, то я поеду на море на две или три недели. А у тебя какие планы?

Я думаю, что смогу тебе помочь и вышлю по электронной поте контактные данные моего агента.
