How to say, "OK" in Russian.

o-KEI

It's actually that simple, but just to complicate things a little bit, the accent is on the second syllable, always. And just make it sound more Russian, and you'll be o-KEI.

One more time.

o-KEI

Now, you try.

Great! But if you wanted to add a little more to that, you can say "OK, as you wish" in the following way.

o-KEI, poost BOO-dzet po-TVOH-yemuh

o-KEI, poost BOO-dzet po-TVOH-yemuh

In the word BOO-dzet the accent is on the first syllable.

In the word po-TVOH-yemuh, the accent is on the second syllable.

Let me say it again, real slow.

o-KEI, poost BOO-dzet po-TVOH-yemuh

Now, say it at normal speed.

Now, you try.

That's good.

Another way of saying "OK" or "That'll do" would be

ga-DSI-tsah

The accent on that word is on the second syllable, and so it sounds like this when saying it really slow.

One more time, real slow.

ga-DSI-tsah

Now, at normal pace.

ga-DSI-tsah

Now, you try.

Fantastic!

Finally, a word that means, fine and agreed, is

The accent on that is on the second syllable.

And saying it slow, it would sound like this.

zha-MYO-tah-noh

One more time slow.
