How to say "Good job" in Russian.

One way of saying good job would be O-chen khah-rah-SHOH.

The first word O-chen hits the accent on the first syllable. The second word khah-rah-SHOH, hits the accent on the last syllable.

Putting it together.

O-chen khah-rah-SHOH

One more time, nice and slow.

O-chen khah-rah-SHOH

And now, at a more conversational rate.

O-chen khah-rah-SHOH

Now, you try.

Great! Another way of saying "Good Job" to someone would be to say

moh-loh-DZETS

That kind of means, you're a champ.

The accent on that is on the last syllable. I'll say it nice and slow.

moh-loh-DZETS

One more time.

moh-loh-DZETS

And now at a normal conversational rate.

moh-loh-DZETS

Now, you try.

Great. Now, if you wanted to tell someone that they did an "Excellent job", you would say

ve-lee-koh-LYEP-na-ya ra-BOH-ta

That's one long word, and one slightly shorter word. The first word ve-lee-koh-LYEP-na-ya which means excellent hits the accent on that fourth syllable. The second word ra-BOH-ta, work, hits the accent on the second syllable.

Bring it together.

ve-lee-koh-LYEP-na-ya ra-BOH-ta

One more time.

ve-lee-koh-LYEP-na-ya ra-BOH-ta

And now, slightly quicker.

ve-lee-koh-LYEP-na-ya ra-BOH-ta

Now, you try.

Great. Then, finally a pretty cool way of saying "Good job." It's sort of similar to the way in which we might say, A+, to someone would be.

pyats BAL-lov

pyats BAL-lov

It literally means five points which is the top grade in the Russian grading system.

So one more time.

pyats BAL-lov

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

And now, I'll say it at a normal pace.

pyats BAL-lov

pyats BAL-lov

Give it a shot.

Great. pyats BAL-lov

So, that's how you say "Good job" in Russian.
