Ukrainian Language Study

Short Course

Online Ukrainian Language Study is available for all levels, from complete beginner to advanced.

For maximum flexibility we offer individual (one-on-one) lessons which will quickly advance your language skills. Scheduling is flexible as it will be based on the schedules of you and your instructor (who is based in Kyiv). We will work with you to determine a schedule after you register. Once your schedule is set, we ask that you make every effort to not reschedule any lessons. If absolutely necessary, you can request to reschedule a lesson or two, but it is at the discretion of your instructor.

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. 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 "Ukrainian for Russian Learners" below), your Russian should be sufficient for undertaking this unique option.

"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
