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

There are two similar phrases with different meanings:
"Дать сда́чу" = "give change back"
"дать сда́чи". = "to hit back" or "to fight back"
You used the word "сдача" right, but I decided to tell you this.
Vlad, I love your awesome comments and thanks for leaving a comment under the video! People will find these additions very useful. Спасибо!!!!!!!!

Awesome. Very helpful. One thing i did not understand- how is it so warm? Its December in Russia? -40 here.
Northern Alberta )) I figured Russia would be similar, but maybe not those cities (although it is a lot warmer today)
You can see the weather in Russia at the Accuweather site:
Update: The Fahrenheit- Celsius switcher at the top right corner.
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!
