Is the "p" said like a rolled r? Like when speaking spanish for example?

Yes, in Ukrainian, we always 'roll'our "R's"! :)

You can also say, "Моя сестра є студентка.'

    Not in literary Ukrainian.

    Polish requires using 'jest' (Moja siostra jest studentką), so some Western varieties of Ukrainian that were influenced by Polish use «є» here. But this is a very regional thing, and most varieties of Ukrainian use «Моя́ сестра́ — студе́нтка». This is the version used in literary Ukrainian.

    So 'is'? Shouldn't there be any hint for that?
