Ukrainian Language Study

Short Course

Online Ukrainian Language Study is available for all levels, from complete beginner to advanced. It is a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with (or continue study of) another Slavic language and boost your overall understanding and cultural integration should you choose to study in or otherwise visit Ukraine.

For those with intermediate or advanced Russian language skills we offer a unique "Ukrainian for Russian Learners" option, which is aimed to fast-track your understanding of Ukrainian by building upon your pre-existing knowledge of another Slavic language. Two levels are offered, Level 1 (Introductory), and Level 2 (for those who would like to continue beyond the first six lessons or otherwise already have a handle on basic Ukrainian). Ukrainian for Russian Learners will be taught in Russian and will serve to reinforce your Russian language comprehension as well. If you can easily read the course description (see "Level 1" below), your Russian should be sufficient for undertaking this unique option.

When enrolling in the course, indicate in the registration form if you would like to do the Ukrainian for Russian Learners option, otherwise we will assume you are taking the course using English as the base language.

"These lessons are perfect for anyone who's interested in the lexical and phonological differences between Ukrainian and Russian. Though they're distinct languages, anyone who's studied Russian will pick up Ukrainian fairly easily: The vocabulary is familiar, the grammar is essentially the same, and the differences in diction are just significant enough to keep things interesting." - Michael Denner, Professor of Russian, Stetson University

"Truly everything is going great with this course. The instructor is wonderful and since there are only three of us, there is plenty of time for individual questions and attention. I definitely intend to sign up for the next part of the course." - Mattingly Gerasimovich, PhD Student, Northwestern University
