Добро пожаловать на (Dabro pazhalavat’na) (Welcome to) Rocket Russian. Are you a handyman, or a handywoman? In this lesson, we're going to talk about a group of words that are sure to come in “handy” for you. That's right - tools in Russian! These words are sure to be useful if you're traveling to a Russian-speaking country, but they'll be especially vital if you're living in one.
Pay close attention and repeat the words aloud after listening. We'll get you “fixed up” with all the Russian vocabulary on инструменты (instrumenty) that you'll need.
