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.

Both the audio part and the notes are just great

Dear Anna, I wanted to write to say how helpful your podcasts are! Season 3 is at the perfect level of Ukrainian for me (I’d previously finished the first book of Yabluko), and both the audio part and the notes are just great. And while I use the current season, I go back and review previous seasons.

I’m a teacher myself (choir director with mainly boys, girls and teens, actually), so I can say that your method is very good for teaching  – give an idea, then use it in the course of the lesson. Then repeat later. I particularly like the “phrase of the day”.

I’m so happy that I’ve signed up for your premium membership – it’s very useful.

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.

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!!

A very great help to learn Ukrainian

As a teacher of French as a foreign language, I really appreciate the quality of the podcast offered by Anna. The length, the rhythm of each dialog is perfect. I really like the fact that the dialog is repeated twice and then explained part after part. Many many thanks!
