How to say "OK" in Russian

There are multiple ways to say OK in Russian.

First of all, Russians actively use the English OK:

– Приходи́ за́втра в де́сять.
– Окей.

[- pree-ha-dée záft-ra v dyé-syat’
– o-keî]

– Come tomorrow at 10 AM.
– Ok.

Often, OK in Russian sounds not like in English [okey] but simply [ok]:

– Позвони́ мне за́втра.
– Ок.

[- paz-va-née mnye záft-ra
– ok]

– Call me tomorrow.
– Ok.

Besides, you cay say OK in Russian using Russian words:

ла́дно [lád-na] (ok, alright, deal),

хорошо́ [ha-ra-shó] (good),

договори́лись [da-ga-va-rée-lees’] (agreed, deal).

Examples:

– Дава́й встре́тимся у метро́?
– Хорошо́.

[- da-váî fstryé-teem-sya u meet-ró
– ha-ra-shó]

– Let’s meet at metro station?
