I feel like I'm doing great, until I realize my Ukrainian is still at the level of Dr Seuss :p

Don't worry, I'm very very excited that you are learning! ^_^

Even when someone says something simple like я люблю піцу I'm melting inside :D

And yeah, it's basically like learning Latin or German with all the cases, persons and genders, so, takes some time...

Oh wait you're not doing Ukr anymore :'D

Are there actually вареньки with potatoes? I automatically relate вареньки with mince or cheese stuffing.

Or it is meant dumplings together with potatoes, not that the dumplings have smashed potatoes as stuffing?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sagitta145

Yes, there are ^_^

Google images for вареники з картоплею. OK, you can't really see the insides there, but trust me, there are mashed potatoes in them :D

Alternate translation: "They are not Ukrainian". At least if my relatives are any indication...
