Привіт! Мене звати Анна і я ваша вчителька української. 🙂
I have created the Ukrainian Lessons Podcast to give people all around the world access to learning my language wherever they are – on the way to work, in the car, or on the plane to Ukraine!
I speak five foreign languages and I travel a lot. So, I feel like my strength and mission are to share the Ukrainian language and culture with the world by means of the digital technology.
Join me and my students in this adventure!
Ukrainian Lessons Podcast listeners say (more testimonials here):
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!
Perfect next step after Duolingo
I finished the lessons available for free at Duolingo. Anna’s lessons are the perfect next step. I found that I had a lot of the vocabulary and some of the grammar, but Anna’s explanations and examples brought me into the real world of Ukrainian speakers. How they talk in real life and how they interact.
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.
