After almost 40 episodes of Ruspod Shorts, you might want to take a little break from the long Russian words and zee evil Russian pronunciation. In this episode, you'll learn a whole bunch of very informal, very short and very simple ways to communicate your emotions.
You probably won't be able to have an intelligent conversation with this vocabulary only, but hey — you'll be able to act as if you really care about what the other person is saying. And sometimes, it makes all the difference.
