Tips to remember the Russian word 'пригород' (prígorod):
Prio-racity: Think of the "pri" part as "priority" (meaning before or near), which helps you remember that a suburb is near a city.
Go-road: The "gorod" part means "city" in Russian. Imagine you "go" to the main "road" from the suburb to the city.

– The word 'пригород' (prígorod) is a compound word in Russian, composed of "при-" (pri-) meaning "near" or "adjacent to," and "город" (gorod), which means "city." Thus, 'пригород' literally translates to a place near the city, i.e., a suburb.

Other words that mean the same thing:
окрестности (okrestnosti): This word means the surrounding areas or outskirts.
пригородная зона (prígorodnaya zóna): Directly translates to “suburban area,” a more descriptive version.

Alternate meanings (slang):
– In some contexts, especially in everyday speech, 'пригород' can humorously or pejoratively refer to a place that's not quite the countryside but still not the bustling city center.

Examples of sentences that use it:
– Я живу в пригороде Москвы. (Ya zhivú v prígorode Moskvy.) – I live in the suburbs of Moscow.
– Пригород растет очень быстро. (Prígorod rastet óchen’ býstro.) – The suburb is growing very quickly.
– В нашем пригороде открылся новый торговый центр. (V náeshem prígorode otkrýlsya novýy torgóvy tséntr.) – A new shopping center has opened in our suburb.
