Lesson 5 - end of the alphabet

I think you need to know about the letter Ы ы.

Ы ы is pronounced like И и
but it comes after hard consonants.

Exercise 1


Listen to the examples and repeat!



мило “nice” – мыло “soap”
бИть “beat” – бЫть “be”
лисА “fox” – лЫсый “bold”
рИс “rice” – рЫсь “lynx”
мишЕнь “target” – мЫшь “mouse”


Exercise 2

Now try it yourself!

мЫтый
мИлый
мЫсль
попЫтка
пИть
дЫня
динамИт

Check yourself!




The letter Ё ё comes only under the stress.
It is pronounced like О о but it makes the previous consonant soft.


Exercise 3

Listen to the examples and repeat!



мЁд
овЁс
тЁтя
вперЁд
клЁвый

When it comes at the beginning of a word or after another vowel or the letter Ь ь
it is pronounced like “yo”.


Exercise 4

Listen to the examples and repeat!



Ёлка
моЁ
бельЁ
шитьЁ
паЁк


Exercise 5

Try to pronounce this mysterious letter yourself!

квЁлый
житьЁ-бытьЁ
мЁрзнуть
лЁд
улЁт

Yes, it is a hard letter!
Listen to the correct pronunciation.



Now you may consider that you know all the most important things
about the Russian alphabet!
In the next lessons we’ll start learning how to behave in everyday life in Russia
but we’ll continue to train the pronunciation as well!
