Learn Russian online: How much does it cost?

How much does it cost?

Today, we are going to learn how to ask one of the basic questions of humanity: "Ско´лько сто´ит?" – "How much does something cost?" You'll be able to use it not only in a shop, but also while talking to a taxi driver. The answer can sometimes result in an unpleasant suprise – after our lesson, you'll be able to express it properly!


Dialog

Девушка: Мне ну´жно на Арба´т. Ско´лько э´то сто´ит?
Girl: I need to get to the Arbat (street). How much does it cost?
Таксист: 1000 (ты´сяча).
Taxi-driver: 1000 (rubles).
Девушка: Ты´сяча? Почему´ так до´рого?
Girl: A thousand? Why is it so expensive?
Таксист: Э´то Москва´.
Taxi-driver: That's Moscow (for you).

This website is absolutely incredible. Thank you so much! Everything is so beautifully put-together, well presented, and aesthetically pleasing. I thought I'd never find a great learning program like this -- all I have found so far is vocabulary and complicated grammar pages. But this, ...исключительный! I put this comment here, because the cost of this program is priceless!
