Intermediate Ukrainian

By: Oksana Sachyk, Ph.D.

Intermediate Ukrainian Cover Using our Intermediate Ukrainian online course, you can follow Kateryna, a Canadian school teacher, as she tours Kyiv with her Ukrainian friend and learns about the history and culture of Ukraine. Watch video and learn about greetings, shopping, food, dining out, weather, education, literature, holiday traditions, and more.  With our specially designed video player for language learning you can pause the video at any point and scroll the transcription. Read annotations about culture and grammar. Click on almost any word or sentence to hear it spoken, along with translations.   This course can be used either by independent learners or by students in a traditional or self-instructional classroom setting, and is the equivalent of the material covered in a one-year college course.
