How to Say Goodbye in Russian


Goodbye in Russian is До свидания (do svidanya), which is pronounced dah svi-dah-ni-yah.

The Russian phrase translates to until (next) meeting. This is a polite and formal way of saying goodbye that is appropriate to say to anyone.

But if you want to say goodbye in Russian informally, you just say пока (poka), pronounced pah-kah. This is very casual and should only be used among friends and family.

Italian Words

Nevertheless, having a basic vocabulary can help you communicate, so here’s a list of common Italian words.

Italian words

This list of Italian words are all nouns. In Italian, nouns are either masculine or feminine and therefore take a masculine or feminine article. There isn’t much rhyme or reason to whether a noun is masculine or feminine, so you just have to learn them. Also, there are six definite articles, all of which mean ‘the’! They are il, lo, la, i, gli and le. There are three indefinite articles – un, uno, una – which translate into ‘a’ or ‘an’. Other romance languages, such as Spanish or French, have a plural indefinite article, but not Italian.
