✅ Why should you learn Ukrainian?

Ukrainian (украї́нська мо́ва, ukrayínsʹka móva, IPA: [ʊkrɐˈjinʲsʲkɐ ˈmɔʋɐ]) is an East Slavic language of the Indo-European language family, spoken primarily in Ukraine. It is the native language of Ukrainians.

Written Ukrainian uses the Ukrainian alphabet, a variant of the Cyrillic script. The standard Ukrainian language is regulated by the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NANU; particularly by its Institute for the Ukrainian Language), the Ukrainian language-information fund,and Potebnia Institute of Linguistics. Comparisons are often drawn to Russian, another East Slavic language, but there is more mutual intelligibility with Belarusian. Additionally, spoken Ukrainian has partial intelligibility with Polish.

Ukrainian is a descendent of Old East Slavic, a language spoken in the medieval state of Kievan Rus'. In the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the language developed into Ruthenian, where it became an official language, before a process of Polonization began in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. By the 18th century, Ruthenian diverged into regional variants and the modern Ukrainian language developed in the territory of present-day Ukraine. Russification saw the Ukrainian language banned as a subject from schools and as a language of instruction in the Russian Empire, and continued in various ways in the Soviet Union. However, the language continued to see use throughout the country, and remained particularly strong in Western Ukraine.

✅ How long does it take to master Ukrainian?

In order to learn the communication phrases used by tourists in daily situations a couple days in the language course will suffice. However, if you want to master written and spoken Ukrainian more properly, you should allow one to three years. In order to achieve an academic level, you will need at least five to seven years.

With time and motivation you can master Ukrainian faster. The more time you dedicate to learning the language, the faster you will achieve the result. Daily communication in Ukrainian will be a great advantage. And do not forget the media (radio and television), press, cultural events, music, and films in Ukrainian.

✅ Does your mother-tongue affect your mastery of Ukrainian?

If you speak Bulgarian or Ukrainian or one of these languages is your mother-tongue, you will learn Ukrainian easier and faster. People proficient in Slavic languages will see similarities with the Ukrainian grammar system and words loaned from these languages.

Some important tips in order to master Ukrainian faster:

  • Learn each new word in the context it is used in.
  • Repeat what you have learned often because repetition is the mother of learning;
  • Use both real and virtual Ukrainian language domain;
  • Use the media (TV, radio, music, literature, social media platforms) in Ukrainian;
  • Read fiction in Ukrainian, start with easy Ukrainian;
  • Let yourself make mistakes, use the language, jump in the Ukrainian language river for a swim! You can do it!
