Ukrainian learners say:

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.

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!!

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!

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!

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.
