this is the language of my grand parents

I am from Poland and Ukrainian is a language of our neighbours.

Honestly I bought into the whole 'Ukrainian is a dialect of Russian' thing for a long time. Once I took the time to look at it, I discovered its definitely unique and that Ukrainian is as different from Russian in the same way Polish is different. I prefer Ukrainian writing to Russian, I think it flows better. These letters Ъ and Ы ы just bug the heck out of me.

Hey, I’m interested in all Slavic languages, that’s why I started learning Ukrainian!

One of my best friends is Ukrainian!

I also am learning because it is the language of my grandparents, who come from Kiev and Donetsk. It is very fun but the grammar is incredibly challenging! I would love to become fluent one day. However, now that I have gotten pretty far into the Ukrainian tree, I am unsure if that will ever happen, even if I finish the Ukrainian course here on Duolingo. Any suggestions for improving once we finish here?

My native language)

How about you tell us why you picked on this particular language?


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

I have Ukrainian heritage. I would love to master the language of the region in which my family came from.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tembo441

Yes, that's what I thought, and why I asked my question.


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

Насправді це дуже цікаве запитання. Я розумію - сім'я, стосунки, можливо робота. Але що шукають інші?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tembo441

Я? Я сподіваюся подорожувати Україною. Це дуже цікава країна.


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

У світі багато цівавих країн. Майже кожна, особливо європейські. Україна має "багатий" совецький спадок (поганий транспорт, дешеве житло, мінімум публічних розваг, невибагливе обслуговування, дикувате населення).

Зона екстремального туризму. 8)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tembo441

Я знаю. Саме це робить його цікавим.

Також я редагував та видав книгу про Україну під час Другої світової війни "The Last of the Sonderkommando". Я не автор.


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

Шостий рік в Україні іде інша війна.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Stan976113

Не знаю звідки Ви, але в плані публічних розваг і якості обслуговування, то Україна стоїть на одному з кращих місць в світі. Повірте мені, я багато подорожую і навіть багато де жив :)

Чому ж так мало іноземних туристів?...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DeborahJa98

I am learning because it is my heritage. My father was an immigrant from Ukrainian roots. Most of the Ukrainian speakers in my family have passed on. I want to know the language of my ancestors.

I was in Group V Peace Corps from 1995-1997. I wasn't the best in my language group during training, but I was in a "village" (at that time now, more of a suburb) of Lviv, so learned Ukrainian, as opposed to Russian, Hungarian, etc. One volunteer lived on the border with Hungary, and her students actually spoke Hungarian and Romani. Also, not many people knew English in my immediate area, and there were of course more Ukrainian speakers in the west of the country at that time. When I returned to visit in 2001, I was better at speaking ,but found it frustrating that there were not many resources for Ukrainian (as opposed to Russian) language learning back in the states. Duolingo has been a lifeline, and now with more time on my hands I have returned. I believe it was a Peace Corps group that helped with the Ukrainian language/English portal here. (?) In any case....I want to stick with Ukrainian as I have an emotional propensity for it. I am also learning that Ukrainian is closer to Belarussian, Polish and Slovak that to Russian, so I would be quite confused I tried to mix at this point. In any case, I am really grateful to Duolingo for this platform for Ukrainian, and also radio garden and all the great radio stations streaming from all over the world, and Ukraine! That is also a great resource for language immersion.

давай ще про Бендерівців тут розкажи які дітей їдять. як ото з паралельної реальності

Україна завжди була красивою та цікавою країною, з багатою культурою. Населення дуже ввічливе та добре відноситься до гостей Країни. Стосовно "нациків", завдяки допомозі східних сусідів, нацики поїхали на схід, на історичну батьківщину (правда деякі ще сидять в ДОнецьку та Луганську, але маємо надію, що й вони поїдуть до своєї батьківщини - Мордору). Welcome to Ukraine! Our country is very beaytiful, people are very kind. The food is very testyt (sma`chno).
