How to say, "I am from" in Russian.

ya iz ...

That means, I am from. Then, of course, you would say where you are from.

One more time.

ya iz ...

And sort of more conversationally.

ya iz ...

You kind of blend the two words together.

ya iz ...

Now, you try.

Fantastic! Where you are from may not necessarily be the place where you were born. So, if you are a man and you wanted to say, "I was born in", it would be

ya ro-DZI-lsya v ...

Those are three words. The first word is ya. The second word is ro-DZI-lsya with the accent on the second syllable, and the last word is v, which means in.

Putting it all together, slowly

ya ro-DZI-lsya v ...

One more time, slowly.

ya ro-DZI-lsya v ...

And in a conversational pace

Give it a try.

Fantastic. Now, if you're a woman and you wanted to say, "I was born in"

ya ro-dzi-LAS v ...

Pretty much the same thing as with the man saying where he is from.

ya ro-dzi-LAS v ...

I'll say it one more time slowly.

ya ro-dzi-LAS v ...

Now at conversational pace.

ya ro-dzi-LAS v ...

Now, you try.

Excellent. Also, you might like to tell someone where you live, in which case, you would say

ya zhi-VOO v ...

That's three words again. the first is ya, second word is zhi-VOO. The accent is on the second syllable, and v.

Putting it all together, really slow.

ya zhi-VOO v ...

One more time.

ya zhi-VOO v ...

At normal pace.
