Russian Adjectives List: 50 Adjectives for Personality

This is a BIG list. Here’s how I suggest you learn with this.

  • Read, review, and read out loud
  • Print it out as review material (I like printing stuff)
  • Listen to the Audio lesson at the bottom for pronunciation
  • Save images for your personal use (as flashcards)
  • At the end, you’ll learn how to say “I am (adjective).”

Below, you’ll see the English, then the Russian (Cyrillic) and the romanization (so you can read it and pronounce it). It’s broken up into 5 parts.
