Learn Russian through Shop Signs!

Hi guys,

I was walking along Gorokhovaya Street in Saint Petersburg and decided to make a video-lesson using shop signs!

You can watch here: https://youtu.be/2tgKdWU1Zug

I hope you like it!

Best, Angelos

There are two similar phrases with different meanings:

  1. "Дать сда́чу" = "give change back"

  2. "дать сда́чи". = "to hit back" or "to fight back"

You used the word "сдача" right, but I decided to tell you this.

Northern Alberta )) I figured Russia would be similar, but maybe not those cities (although it is a lot warmer today)

In a recent visit to Russia with a buddy who speaks NO Russian, after a few days, he asked me, "What is Pektopah, I keep seeing it everywhere."

Pectopah? WTH is that?

Oh, you mean restaurant!
