Привіт! Мене звати Анна Огойко. My name is Anna Ohoiko. I am a Ukrainian language specialist – I teach, translate and study my native Ukrainian language.

In June 2016, I have created the Ukrainian Lessons Podcast – a series of free audio lessons that help people around the world to learn conversational modern Ukrainian, step by step.

The audio episodes of the Ukrainian Lessons Podcast are always free of charge. As of August 2018, we have developed more than 80 episodes – 15-30 minute portions of the Ukrainian language and culture. The Season #3 is ongoing now!

If you want to support Ukrainian Lessons Podcast and enjoy weekly PDF Lesson Notes & Vocabulary flashcards (every 10 episodes), you can become Ukrainian Lessons Premium Member.

Download the Lesson Notes once a week, follow the texts and explanations, review your vocabulary in the lists and practice with exercises. And… enjoy your Ukrainian learning!

Extra Vocabulary Smart Flashcards!

After each 10 episodes of Ukrainian Lessons Podcast, I prepare a deck of flashcards that you can use on your computer, phone or tablet with a smart Anki application.

Each deck includes all the focus vocabulary and expressions from 10 lessons, together with a picture, native speaker’s pronunciation, and synonyms or grammar notes.

I love Anki flashcards! This tool was proved to be great for learning and reviewing the vocabulary of any language quickly and efficiently. I aim to prepare great Ukrainian flashcards for our Premium members.

Bonus! Become a member of the ULP Facebook Community!

In the closed group, ULP Premium Subscribers can meet other Ukrainian learners, ask questions about the specific topics of the Podcast, communicate in Ukrainian and be corrected by native speakers!

Proud of our listeners!

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!

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.

Фантастично! Fantastic!

Привіт! Я дуже люблю Ukrainian Lessons Podcast. Я волонтер корпусу меру, і я живу в Україні. Моя вчителька мене сказала я розмовляю українською дуже добре. Я слухала кожного уроку. Дякую!

Hi! I love this podcast! I am a Peace Corps Trainee, and I just moved to Ukraine, where I will be serving for 2 years. I listened to this podcast A LOT in the months before my departure, and now that I am here I made it into the advanced language study group. My teacher said I speak very well, and she was especially impressed that I know how to conjugate some verbs. When she asked where I learned, I told her about this podcast! I’ve listened to every episode. Thank you!

Чудова вчителька!

Life is always an adventure! I grew up in the U.S., speaking Ukrainian at home and our Ukrainian Orthodox Church. I even attended Школа Українознавства for 8 years. To be honest, I didn’t always appreciate sitting there while the other kids were out playing. When we visited Ukraine many many years ago I realized what a great heritage I had. In memory of this heritage we named our son Taras.

I live in Germany now and when my parents passed away I no longer really had the opportunity to hear or speak Ukrainian. Thanks to the internet I came across Anna’s website and podcast and I love it!

Anna herself is so charming and engaging and her lessons are a delightful incentive to revive dormant vocabulary and traditions. I am beginning to think it would be a good idea to visit Ukraine again. Being a language teacher myself I don’t claim to be an expert, but perhaps a pretty good judge of what and how Anna puts across her endeavors.

Dedicated to the last syllable, motivating and it’s always a pleasure to listen to her charming голосочок. Анна фантастична and for anyone seriously interested in learning Ukrainian, her podcast is the place to be. For anyone without any previous knowledge her Premium Membership is a valuable addition. Go for it and remember, practice makes perfect. Гарного дня, всього найкращого!

This podcast is lifechanging

Anna is clearly a brilliant linguist, and manages to convey masses of information in an engaging and exciting way. It means a lot that she has created a resource that is so helpful and accessible for Ukrainian language learners, and that includes contemporary Ukrainian culture. I will definitely stick with her program, and I really hope the community grows!
