I'm using Pimsleur to teach myself Russian and I've had "skol'ko ya dolzhen" stuck in my head. I can't remember what lesson I heard it in. All I know is that "skol'ko" means "how much."

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I'm not great at the Cyrillic alphabet so I don't know how to properly type it, and if I did I could just put it into Google translate and solve all my problems!

  • @DK. I use this site russian.typeit.org sometimes, but when I have a sound that is a combination of English sounds (something like ж or щ) I don't know what to do to. Especially since щ, ш, and ч usually sound the same to me.

1 Answer 1


Сколько я должен? [skol'ko ya dolzhen] It means "How much do I owe you?"

On the Pimsleur course this phrase should appear at lesson №10-15.
