Great way to learn Ukrainian

I want to learn Ukrainian because my father’s parents came to Canada from Ukraine in the early 1900s. I’ve always loved my Ukrainian family and culture. Unfortunately, after my grandparents died, my father and his siblings stopped speaking their language. Over the years I’ve tried to learn Ukrainian online and in local classes, but have never achieved more than just a few words.

This year I decided to try learning Ukrainian again. I started listening to the 5 Minute Podcast and printed the PDF lesson notes. After the first three lessons, I was so pleased with my progress that I decided to subscribe to the premium membership.

The lessons are well organized, easy to understand, and easy to fit into my schedule. At the beginner level, I’m steadily learning new vocabulary, and am understanding more and more of the Ukrainian movies and TV shows I watch online. The Ukrainian Lessons blog also offers interesting posts on a wide variety of subjects. Thank you Anna for a great learning experience.

I highly recommend the podcast, the website, and the premium membership.

I am really enjoying the premium membership

I am really enjoying the premium membership. I just started learning Ukrainian in December 2020 as I have a family heritage. I started using Duolingo and then progressed to listening to the Ukrainian Lessons podcasts. And I started to print out and review the lesson notes. I found these sessions to be so helpful and very practical – the way people actually speak to each other. I decided to invest in the premium membership. I did have some challenges with installing the Anki app at first, but once this was sorted out, I’ve found the flashcards to be very helpful as are the lesson notes. I also take weekly lessons on iTalki and so I’m using 3 different methods of learning – Premium membership in Ukrainian Lessons, Duolingo and iTalki lessons. Each is really good in different ways and they all compliment each other. I find the Ukrainian Lessons premium membership to be worth the investment and not overly pricey. I like the fact that I can purchase a specific number of lessons at a time and I don’t have to commit to ongoing payments if I don’t choose. Although I am quite certain I will continue to use this excellent service!

Фантастично! Fantastic!

Привіт! Я дуже люблю Ukrainian Lessons Podcast. Я волонтер корпусу меру, і я живу в Україні. Моя вчителька мене сказала я розмовляю українською дуже добре. Я слухала кожного уроку. Дякую!

Hi! I love this podcast! I am a Peace Corps Trainee, and I just moved to Ukraine, where I will be serving for 2 years. I listened to this podcast A LOT in the months before my departure, and now that I am here I made it into the advanced language study group. My teacher said I speak very well, and she was especially impressed that I know how to conjugate some verbs. When she asked where I learned, I told her about this podcast! I’ve listened to every episode. Thank you!

Веселий сайт і уроки

Дуже трудно вчитися нові мови, але з подкастом Анни й її «premium package» (не знаю слів тут) це багато легше. Маю родина в Україні й мені був багато років без успіху пробування не тільки чітати але розуміти розмовну українську мову також. Тепер, все супер. «Kласно,» не правда? Дуже дуже дякую Анно!!
