Translation:She promised that she would learn the Ukrainian language.
Why would? There are no examples of the conditional in this course up to now, we've not been taught it
This is not a conditional mood, this is a regular future tense. 'Would' is used in the English translation to make the English sentence grammatical.
In English, you shift tenses in the subordinate clauses in indirect speech:
- She promised: "I will learn Ukrainian." → She promised she would learn Ukrainian.
- Oksana said: "I love you." → Oksana said she loved me.
- Vira said: "I knew this." → Vira said she had known this.
In Ukranian, we don't shift tenses in subordinate clauses:
- Вона обіцяла: «Я буду вчити українську». → Вона обіцяла, що [вона] буде вчити українську.
- Оксана сказала: «Я люблю тебе». → Оксана сказала, що любить мене. (люблю and любить is changed because the person is changed: я люблю́, Оксана любить, but the tense is the same)
- Віра сказала: «Я це знала». → Віра сказала, що вона це знала.
So it's basically just a normal future tense.
I don't know what you are talking about. Which of the comments are you referring to? Please hit "Reply" on a comment you are answering to, and not "Leave a new comment" on top.
Because that's how you say it in English.
You can say "She learns X" or "She learns the X language" where X = English, Spanish, Ukrainian, French etc.
To explain to you why so. This is reported speech. Confusing when you learn English-Ukrainian/Russian In English Anna said: "I will learn Ukrainian". = Anna said that she would learn Ukrainian In Ukrainian when making such sentences we do not change the time at the reported part of the sentence Анна сказала: "Я буду вчити Українську". = Анна сказала, що (вона) буде вчити Українську
