🥞 В эти дни в городах и загородных парках по всей стране устраивают ярмарки, на которых можно отведать блины с различными начинками и традиционные русские напитки.
🎠 Также все желающие могут поучаствовать в играх и соревнованиях по перетягиванию каната, бегу в мешках, катанию на лопатах и поднятию гирь.
Keeping you informed about the rules of Russian pronunciation 🙂

🖊 When the letter д is at the end of the word, it should be pronounced as [т]. For example, in the words город and мёд the last sound is [т].

However, if another letter appears after д at the end of the same word, then д should be pronounced as [д]: в городе, с мёдом.

🖇 Read the examples in the second image and remember the correct pronunciation.

Do you know other Russian words where д at the end becomes [т]? 🐻
