How to say "cheers" in Russian. Nah zda-rovh-yeh. The accent on the second
word is on the second syllable. I'll say it slow. Nah zda-rovh-yeh. Once
again slowly. Nah zda-rovh-yah. And now, saying it with vigor as one should,
nah-zda-rovh-yeh. Give it a try. Fantastic. A slightly more formal way of
cheering someone or a group of people would be za vah-sheh-zda-rovh-yeh.
The accent on the second word is on the first syllable and once again on
the zda-rovh-yeh, it's on the second syllable as well on the third word.

So bring it all together. Za vah-sheh zda-rovh-yeh. One more time slowly,
za vah-sheh zda-rovh-yeh. At normal pace, za vah-sheh zda-rovh-yeh. Give it
a try. Excellent. If you're cheering someone with whom you are friends or
whom you know well. It would sound like this, za tvo-yoh zda-rovh-yeh. The
accent on the second word is on the second syllable. Saying it all
together, za tvo-yoh zda-rovh-yeh. One more time slowly, za tvo-yoh zda-
rovh-yeh. At normal pace, za tvo-yoh zda-rovh-yeh. Now, you try. Fantastic.

Finally, if you wanted to say "bottom's up," you would say peyh-do-dnah.
Even though there's three separate words, monosyllabic, you still kind of hit
the accent on that last word within that phrase so, it sounds like this,
peyh-do-dnah. One more time, peyh-do-dnah. At normal pace, peyh-do-dnah.
Give it a try. Excellent. Those are some of the ways to say "cheers" in
Russian.
