Adverbial participle 1 | Деепричастие 1

Hi, everyone!

Today lesson is for the advanced level students. We’re going to talk about adverbial participles  1 or in Russian “деепричастия 1”.

Деепричастие is a special form of verb which includes features of a verb and an adverb. So we use it as an additional action to describe the main action. Look at the example:


  • Мальчик читает книгу и слушает музыку.

Or we can say:

  • Мальчик читает книгу, слушая музыку.

It has the same meaning but as you can see in the second example the verb “слушать” has a different form. This is adverbial participle.

So as you can see from the example we use it when someone does two things at the same time:

рки блог

So everything you have to to is just to replace the infinitive ending     -ть of one of two verbs with the ending .

Here are some more examples:

  • Работая целый день, я думал о тебе – I’ve been thinking about you during the whole work day.
  • Он шёл улыбаясь –  He was walking and smiling.
  • Я читал книгу, смотря телевизор. – I was reading a book while I was watching the TV.

It was the adverbial participle -1. There is one more – Adverbial participle – 2. I will tell you about it next time.

Bye! Enjoy your weekend!
