It’s obvious what product is being advertised, but still…good practice to listen for the key word. The real power of this clip, though, is in the rhyming. Give a listen, then we’ll discuss…
Russian Standard….Russian vodka number one in the world.
Notice the forms of the word “Russian”. РУССКИЙ is the masculine version, to match the masculine СТАНДАРТ.
РУССКАЯ is the feminine version, to rhyme with ВОДКА. (Now do you see why I had to teach the word in today’s episode?)

The woman tells the chef that this new soup of his tastes like the old one on the menu. (And she’s right.) But what does he say?
No, this is “Gourmet” soup.

On this educational program, kids are introducing their families. In this long clip, a few words will be new for us, but can you follow along and get the gist?

Это моя семья. Это моя мама. Её зовут Алла. Это мой папа. Его зовут Саша. Это я!
This is my family. This is my mom. Her name is Alla. This is my dad. His name is Sasha. This is me! (LIT: This is I!)

Hmm…what new word from Ep. #2 might we be on the lookout for in this one?
Pepsi…The most delicious cola in the world.
NOTE: We again notice the rhyming. This time, the adjectives “most” and “delicious” are in their feminine forms, to rhyme with “cola”.
