“My name is” in Russian

In this first Russian lesson for beginners we are covering the basics: let’s learn how to say “My name is” and ask somebody “What is your name?”.

The lesson is accompanied by an audio track recorded by a native Russian speaker. Every phrase in the audio is read two times: the first time at a slow speed and the second time a bit more faster. Listen to the audio a few times and practice the correct pronunciation.
