Worth every penny

Anna is an amazing teacher and I’m growing by leaps and bounds in my understanding and ability to speak. The lessons are so well done. It’s so obvious that she is indeed a trained teacher who knows how to convey information so that it is retained well. I 100% recommend this course to anyone who wants to become proficient in Ukrainian. It’s the best program out there!

Very efficient method!

I think the Ukrainian language is the most beautiful of all the Slavic languages due to its musicality and rhythm… I feel lucky to came across Anna’s way of teaching it!, it is friendly and very well focused in securing the steps one by one as I am progressing through the entire course. And the best part is that it doesn’t stop at the basics… It keeps on and on, it gets gradually more difficult as you go… Lovely!

I would recommend everyone to subscribe to the premium membership, it justifies its value 100%… better when you leave your українські friends amazed by your progress in their beautiful language.

If I have to give a constructive suggestion will be: more exercises, more practice, more homework, more lessons. and Hopefully Anna one day will recreate this course for Spanish native speakers that want to learn Ukrainian… Well, why?… because I am Peruvian … you figured it out!

Beautiful Country. Beautiful Language.

Hello Anna! I am a Jamaican currently living in Florida, USA, and I met my wife, who is from Rivne.

The main reason I subscribe to your Premium membership is to receive the lesson notes with the full translation into English of the dialogs and texts. This is absolutely essential for me to be able to learn the language properly. When I listen to the dialogs and narrations, I read along with the English translation. I listen again, reading along in Ukrainian, then listen without reading to see how much I understand. I do this even before I get into your explanations in the lessons. Now that I am a few lessons into season three, I try to read the Ukrainian texts before I listen to the episode.

The main things I like about the podcast are the dialogues. I get to learn the language in context, rather than just learning words and phrases, as other language resources tend to do. I also love the fact that you use multiple persons throughout your lessons. Hearing different native speakers makes the lessons that much more interesting and helps to train my ears to become accustomed to the language. I cannot begin to tell you just how beneficial this has been to me when I interact with people here in the cafes, marketplaces, shops, and stores. Ooh, the smiles I get when I say a few words or phrases in your native language. People are just so pleasantly surprised.

Thank you so very much for all the work you and your team have done in creating and making these lessons available. Your podcast is by far the best resource I have found for learning Ukrainian. The Premium membership is indeed a worthwhile investment.

Enjoying the premium membership

The main reason that I joined premium membership was to get access to the additional materials. These have proven to be extremely valuable to me. They have additional content and lessons. However the best part is having the written material so that I can review it at any time. Having the visual media helps me learn the language faster.
I love the podcasts and the easy way that you present the content.
There is probably no way that I would be able to become fluent in Ukrainian without the premium membership.

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.
