Hello everyone! Daria here, and welcome to another slow Russian video. This month I was visiting my Granny in Chelyabinsk, and in the old attic I found the old chess board. And I know that among my students there are several people… at least one person. Hello Mike 😉 … who like chess and who are interested in chess. So I’ve made a little video in slow Russian for all of you guys chess players. And I have a small announcement by the way Now I’ve turned 18 of my slow Russian videos in mp3 files, because you were asking for something to listen to. And also I’ve attached the text in English and in Russian in PDF. So everything you can check out below this video, I’ll put the link there. Ok, enough talking, let’s look at the chess board. So this is a chess board. And these are the chess pieces. These all are chess pieces. Let’s look at them one by one. This is a pawn. Pawn. 8 pawns total: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8. Pawns go forward one or two squares. Black pawns. Now the rook. When I was a kid I used to call it a tower because it looks like a tower. Rooks go in a straight line forward or or side-to-side. Rook. Then of course a horse (knight). In Russian we say that the knight goes in the shape of Г letter (two squares one way and one square 90 degrees) You see, like this? Letter Г. the horse goes in the shape of Г letter Then we have a bishop. Bishop (*in Russian it’s literally elephant) The bishop goes diagonally. diagonally. It’s a bishop. Then the queen (in Russian it’s “ferz'”). Many people call it a “queen”. And here it even looks like a queen. Black and white. Queen. The queen goes anywhere, in any direction. This is a queen. And of course a king. The most important piece. This is a king. He goes one square in any direction. White king and black king. Very beautiful pieces in these chess. And that was it for today. I hope you’ve enjoyed it. And let me know in the comments – do you like chess? Do you know how to play it at least:) And if you have any questions, leave them there, I’ll be happy to answer. And check out the link below this video. The link to my new slow Russian course I guess, I think it’s a full course already. Ok that’s it for today. Thank you very much for watching. I hope to see you in my next video. Bye-bye!
