Learn Beginner Russian Podcast: Is Monday a hard day?

This is Episode 16 in our Learn Beginner Russian Podcast series with Alice Val.

Do you like Mondays? Is Monday a hard day for you?

In this Episode you will learn how to say «Monday» in Russian and a very famous Russian phrase about this day of the week, the meaning of which is «Monday is a hard day».

«Понедельник» (puh-nye-dYEl’-neek) is «Monday» in Russian.

«Monday is a hard day» sounds like (puh-nye-dYEl’-neek tye-zhOH-ly-y dYEn’) «понедельник – тяжёлый день».

And you will hear one small word: «не». «Не» means «not» and is pronounced like (nYE).

To revise how to say «Saturday» and «Sunday» in Russian, please, listen to Episode 10.

Remember, you can ask Alice and other Russian speakers questions on Fluentli.com.

By the way, how is your Russian coming along? We’d love to hear about it in the comments!
