Spasiba - Meaning in Russian

Jun 23, 2020
Spasiba

Spasiba in Russian means thank you.

In Cyrillic it’s written спаси́бо.

Spasiba is a very important and must know word in Russian. If you want to give a good impression about yourself, use it as often as the situation allows.

If you want to say thank you very much, it will be большо́е спаси́бо [bal’-shó-ye spa-sée-ba] (which literally means big thank you).

A more informal way (in the style of “okie” instead of “okey”) would be spasibachki:

спаси́бочки
[spa-sée-bach-kee]

Keep in mind that it is only suitable between friends and relatives, otherwise it sounds not adequate.

Also pay attention, that spasiba in Russian is spelled with the last O but pronounced with A. You can learn more about Russian pronunciation here.
