Negative sentences / Отрицательные предложения

To make a negative sentence in Russian is very easy. Everything you have to do is just adding the negative particle не before a verb. It works for all tenses (preset, past and future).


  • Я не хочу идти в офис – I don’t want to go to the office
  • Я не хотел идти в офис – I didn’t want to go to the office
  • Я не буду работать тут – I will not work here

Questions / Вопросы

Russian is very easy in building question sentences. Everything you have to do is just rise your intonation to make it sound like a question. No need to change the order of words in the sentence. For example,

  • Ты хочешь кофе? – Do you want coffee?
  • Что ты тут делаешь? – What are you doing here?
  • Почему ты это сделал? – Why did you do this?


  • Что What
  • Кто  – Who
  • Какой What kind of (what for adjectives)
  • Как – How
  • Когда  When
  • Почему Why
  • Зачем – For what
  • Где Where
  • Куда Whereto (direction)
  • Откуда Where from
  • Сколько – How many / How much
