Hi my beautiful students! I offer you to discover 10 interesting and surprising facts about Russian language!
Surprising Fact One: Talking About Blue? Be Precise While In Russia
All things considered, the Russian language slips the color blue into two completely unique categories: синий (“seeniy” which means dark-blue) & голубой (“goluboy” which means light-blue). Studies have shown that Russians are better at differentiating between light-blue & dark-blue shades, and notjust in terms of language. While Russian differentiates between shades of blue, some languages can’t distinguish between green & blue.
Surprising Fact Two: The Loanwords
A few English words are of Russian origin. Interesting and surprising examples include vodka, ushanka, mammoth, cosmonaut, samovar, sputnik, taiga, tsar, pogrom, and Bolshevik.
Surprising Fact Three: Want To Be an Astronaut, Learn It Right Away
Astonishing isn’t it! Be that as it may, there is an explanation & reason for it. Russian is regularly alluded to as the global language of space. Because of Russia’s presence in space technology, and particularly concerning the International Space Station, it’s presently a necessity for foreign astronauts to have a working knowledge of Russian. In case of an emergency, directions are given to astronauts in Russian. Truth be told, a piece of training to become an astronaut even includes a homestay in Moscow to learn local lingo. So any of you who want to become an astronaut should start learning Russian right away!
