Dialogue 8. How To Say RAIN and SNOW In Russian?


идёт is one of the forms of the verb идти (to walk, to go on foot)

Listen and read through the conjugation: 

Я иду́ – I am going (walking)

Ты идёшь – You are going (walking)

Он (она́, оно́) идёт – He (she, it) is going (walking)

Мы идём – We are going (walking)

Вы идёте – You are going (walking)

Они́ иду́т – They are going (walking)

We use this verb to talk about rain and snow:

Идёт дождь. – It is raining. (literally: The rain is walking.)

Идёт снег. – It is snowing. (literally: The snow is walking.)

It is also fine to say just:

Дождь. – It is raining.

Снег. – It is snowing.
