"Мій Тато є актор." is correct as well.

    This depends on the definition of 'correct'. It's grammatical, but sounds less natural in Ukrainian as spoken in Ukraine. This course teaches Ukrainian as spoken in Ukraine.

    BTW, is the version "Мій тато є актором" possible in real life speech?


    [deactivated user]

      Yes. I'm not completely sure about colloquial speech, but it's used in formal texts a lot.

      Why not мій тато артист


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

      артист in Ukrainian can mean either an artist (you can also say митець), or it can be used as a more general term - something like a performer - that would include actors, but also musicians and singers - so not exactly a good tranlation for an actor
