4. Music to your ears

You will be able to talk (and sing!) in one of the best sounding languages in the world, so soft and so musical! A well-known Christmas carol is originally performed a capella in the Ukrainian language.


5. It looks cool

The Ukrainian Cyrillic alphabet is beautiful. Isn’t it?

6. Easy to pronounce

Letters in Ukrainian are pronounced how they are spelled. So, if you see “професія”, you pronounce each letter “p-r-o-f-e-s-i-ya”, it’s not like reading “profession” in English or French. Fantastic, isn’t it?

7. Language of freedom

And the last, yet still important, reason. Historically speaking, people who speak Ukrainian are courageous, hospitable and caring of each other. By learning Ukrainian you will become a part of a self-respecting nation of dignity and freedom.
