Body in Russian

You use your body all the time. It gets you from A to B, using your legs to walk to the store, your hands to open a door, your shoulders to carry a backpack. I'm sure you're very comfortable talking about all these parts of the body in English, but how about talking about your body in Russian?

Learning body parts is very important. If you ever need to go to the doctor or the pharmacy, you'll need to know what you're talking about. That's why we'll be talking about all the different parts of the body in Russianтело (tela) – in this lesson.
