Історія — The Story

Beatrice (from Spain) and Brian (from the USA) arrived in the village of Vyshenky to examine the soils. An unforgettable summer awaits them: some research, more adventures, sincere friendship, return of history, a pinch of magic and love. Everything began with learning Ukrainian…
Іспанка Беатріс та американець Браян прибули в село Вишеньки, щоб досліджувати ґрунти. Попереду на них чекає незабутнє українське літо: трохи досліджень, ще більше пригод, щира дружба, минуле, що оживає, дрібка магії та кохання. А почалось усе з вивчення української мови…

Авторка — The Author

Natalia Pendiur was born in Kyiv. She lived not only in a big city but also in a Ukrainian village ― with work in the garden and all those village adventures, as described in the book. Natalia studied at the Institute of Journalism at Taras Shevchenko University and Slavic Studies at Masaryk University in Czechia. Then she worked at a radio station for quite a long time. Since 2016, Natalia lives in Czechia where she works as a Ukrainian teacher, translator, and author.

Наталія навчалася в Інституті журналістики університету Тараса Шевченка, а пізніше вивчала славістику в Університеті імені Томаша Масарика в Чехії. Довго працювала на радіо.

What People are saying

My main reason for buying “Як Іноземці Козака Рятували” was to improve my grammar, and phrasing. Though, I quickly realized that it would also be an excellent way to improve my vocabulary, and find native expressions and idioms. I’m still not terribly confident in my language skills when speaking – and I feel that this is a good way to improve my confidence. The audio is excellent. It is easy to listen to, is a great further listening practice, and is helping me to solidify the correct stress patterns – which is an area in which I often make mistakes! The most useful aspect to me is the self-contained nature of the book – almost everything you need to make the content comprehensible: is right there. With the addition of the audiobook version ― it’s perfect for immersive, comprehensible content.

I just love reading this book – such a fun story! It’s read out loud so well (so good for reinforcing correct pronunciation in a fun way). So good to have the vocabulary at the end of each chapter – and a good introduction of grammar in small chunks with workable (not too demanding) exercises!

I bought this book a few weeks ago to give more impetus to my Ukrainian learning. I want to make every effort to improve my limited vocabulary. I read first and try to guess the meaning.  Then I read a second and a third time. The pictures help a lot.  After several attempts, I listen to Natalia reading. She is a slow speaker, which I greatly appreciate. I don’t always do the exercises but recently I have started re-reading earlier chapters and then I often do so.  I am now 100 pages into the book. This represents around 60 hours of reading. I love the story. It goes with me when I go kayaking on the river. I listen to the story in the car. It seems to me that it complements the Ukrainian Lessons Podcast really well.
Colin Burdfield
I have only read the book, I haven’t had the time to listen to it. Reading it was a good challenge. I enjoyed the storyline and the new Ukrainian vocabulary, especially the language that is now commonly used in Ukraine. I found the overall format of the book to be very interesting and useful. I would actually re-read each chapter, both quietly and loudly after reviewing the notes. I would definitely recommend it to others who are of the same level. I hope Natalia can write some more books.

I bought this book so that I could improve my Ukrainian in an enjoyable way. I find it quite challenging, so I am working through it quite slowly. I’m reading each chapter and trying to do the exercises. I haven’t listened much to the recordings yet. I find the vocabulary lists very useful – and the illustrations. I like the physical feel of the book too. Personally, I find it quite challenging, yet the chapters are all nice and short. I would recommend this book to others. I’m not aware of anything similar existing. If another book is written like this I will buy that too!

There’s a lack of intermediate-level texts (with and without audio) for learning Ukrainian. This book was the only one I found. I do a lot with a book:
  • Listening and understanding (roughly, just getting the main ideas)
  • Listening and following the text
  • Reading and understanding (in detail, every word)
  • Listening and repeating out loud (to practice pronunciation)
  • Reading out loud
  • Listening, writing down and comparing written text with the original (to practice spelling which is not that easy for me)
  • Learning vocabulary (not every word, but the most important ones)
  • Doing exercises
I found the most useful funny story that makes it interesting and audio that helps with pronunciation and stressing the words. I would absolutely recommend this book to others.

I have lessons with my teacher 2x/week and each lesson we read 1-2 sections of this book.  After our lessons, I re-read the sections and independently listen to the audiobook. I love audiobook because it helps me with my listening and pronunciation skills. I find the exercises and the book challenging but appropriate for where I am in this journey of learning this beautiful language. The audio, vocabulary list, and exercises. I love it! I highly recommended this book! I hope you will consider creating more books!

I have bought the electronic version of the book suitable for an electronic book reader to practice reading skills in the Ukrainian language and learn new vocabulary and grammar. I listen to one audio file to the book several times, guessing the meaning of unknown vocabulary. Then I open the book and read the text and study the vocabulary in the list to the chapter. It is the captivating plot that motivates me to read the story, as well as the vocabulary lists to the respective chapters and the audio files that I find very useful. I can remember the modern and useful vocabulary more easily when it appears in the context of the story in the book. I find the plot and style of the book original and intriguing. Being a language teacher myself, I strongly believe that reading a book develops our vocabulary and not only this aspect of language knowledge.

I was looking for Ukrainian language material. I listen to audio and try to read along. I work with a tutor to improve my comprehension and pronunciation. I most like how the language is applicable to modern, everyday interactions of real life. Yes, and I already have recommended the book!

I’m learning Ukrainian in an online course here in Finland and the teacher recommended this book. I’m just at the start. I’m reading the stories, learning the vocabulary, istening. I found most useful the variety of the stories and the vocabulary. I would definitely recommend the book, it is very interesting!
