Reaching goals

I am just thrilled to have come across a language program that is so relatable and user friendly! My husband is originally from Ukraine and I want to learn the language. I decided to listen to one or two podcasts for interest’s sake, but when Anna speaks on podcasts, it’s as if she’s there in person to teach you. I printed off the free lesson notes, and before long decided to purchase all the available seasons! This is such a great tool to have a scheduled learning of the Ukrainian language! It will help to make your dreams reality!

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!

Excellent choice!

I have tried other methods and find Ukrainian Lessons the best for me. I really like the way they are presented and the easy to follow format. I will be traveling to Ukraine soon for work and wanted to be able to speak to my Ukrainian counterparts in their native language as much as possible. I never thought learning languages could be so much fun! Well done and thank you for a great product!

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.

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!
