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. So, I want to prepare the best Ukrainian flashcards for our Premium members.

Proud of my listeners!

Great Introduction to Ukrainian

Thanks, Anna, for this series of lessons. You have a very engaging style. In just one week, I have learnt more than I ever expected and I am full of enthusiasm to continue. Very professional but friendly at the same time.

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!

The best prepared teacher ever

On my own, I invested time in the Duolingo Ukrainian course and various Memrise vocabulary lists but I wasn’t improving my language skills as quickly as I wanted, especially for speaking, which was the main point for me. I discovered Ukrainian Lessons podcast while looking for more resources and found the quality so good that I invested in the premium membership and private lessons with Anna.

She is the best language teacher I have ever had! Each lesson is always fun and incorporates a lot of conversation as well as structured lessons that are tailored to me and my ability level. Anna keeps notes in a doc while we meet so that it is easy to keep track of everything I learned in each lesson. I have taken 11 lessons so far and my language skills have improved from mostly just reading and saying “hello, good morning, etc” and simple phrases to being able to construct whole, unique sentences in present, past, and future tense. I feel much more confident in my ability to handle ambiguity and have (simple) conversations with native speakers.

The quality of the podcast notes, of the lesson notes, of the website, of the social media handles (Instagram and Facebook are the ones I follow) is so impressive and once you meet Anna, it makes sense. I would highly recommend Anna as a teacher!
