Russian Conditionals with раз

October 16, 2018 | Tags: Russian conditional mood

Did you know that it is quite common in everyday speech to form conditional clauses with раз (once) and раз уж (once, with emphasis)?

For example,

Раз уж ты пришёл, расскажи нам, как у тебя дела. Once you are here, tell us how are you.

Раз ты говоришь, что знаешь испанский, то сдай экзамен на сертификат. Once you say you know Spanish, take an exam to receive the certificate.
