How to order a beer in Russian.

Дайте Пожалуйста кружкой пива
(DIGH-tyeh puh,ZHAH-luh,stuh KROOJ-koo, PEE-vuh)

Let's break that down. The first word, Дайте (DIGH-tyeh) gets the accent on the first syllable. The second word, Пожалуйста (puh-ZHAH-luh-stuh), which means "please," gets the accent on the second syllable. The third word, кружкой (KROOJ-koo), which means "mug," gets the accent on the first syllable, and пива (PEE-vuh) is the last word, which means "beer," gets the accent on the first syllable.

Putting it all together, nice and slow, Дайте Пожалуйста кружкой пива (DIGH-tyeh,puh-ZHAH-luh-stuh, KROOJ-koo, PEE-vuh).

One more time, nice and slow, because it's a very important question, Дайте Пожалуйста кружкой пива (DIGH-tyeh puh-ZHAH-luh-stuh KROOJ-koo PEE-vuh).

Now, at a normal pace, Дайте Пожалуйста кружкой пива (DIGH-tyeh, puh-ZHAH-luh-stuh, KROOJ-koo, PEE-vuh).

Give it a shot.

Great. Be sure to practice that one a lot. And that's how you order a beer in Russian.
