Здравствуйте!

This is a top difficulty word. Once you are able to pronounce it - you've done half of the language.

Few tips to deal with "здравствуйте":
First of all we are not neseccery using the full version of this word. Most of the times "здрасти" is enough. It sounds a bit informal and is normally used between friends and colleagues.

You can pronounce drama, what ever drama it is. "Ззззз" (there is a fly) "dra" (not the entire drama) "сссссссс" (there also is a snake) "tea" (sounds like invitation to have a cup of tea)
(This is a shortest version of 'Zdravstvuyte' - its most commonly used, as Russians also don't like making life too complex with extra syllables.)

Зззз-дра-ссс-твуй-ти

They never pronounce the first "в" in this word.

Здраствуйти! = Hello!
