How to say, "Pleased to meet you" in Russian.

A very common and polite way of saying that would be

o-chen pri-YAT-no s VA-mee po-zna-KHO-mi-tsa

Let me break that down for you.

The accent on the first word is on the first syllable.

The accent on the second word pri-YAT-no is on the second syllable. Then, there's just a connecting word s.

The accent on the fourth word, VA-mee is on the first syllable.

Finally, the accent on the last word, po-zna-KHO-mi-tsa is on the third syllable.

Now, putting it all together. It sounds like this, really slowly.

o-chen pri-YAT-no s VA-mee po-zna-KHO-mi-tsa

Let me do that again, nice and slow.
