Questions in Russian

Welcome to the Rocket Russian lesson on Questions. As a student of a foreign language, you're sure to be asking a lot of вопросы (vaprosy). Luckily these are the kind of words you use often so they'll be easier to remember.

As you learn and as you travel, you'll encounter things that you aren't quite sure about and will need to feel comfortable asking questions to get answers! You'll probably also get asked a lot of questions by those around you. After this lesson you'll be able to recognize these question words and ask them in return!
