Ukrainian at %100!!!

I know there are still many things to be done, but there's nothing like seeing that magic number! Who else is so excited they are about to explode? I can't wait to tackle the first Slavic language on Duolingo!

I'm excited about the letters units, so as to make sure we have a good foundation. Great work, Ukrainian team! This looks like a great course!

I hadn't planned on learning it, but it's great to see its introduction to the duolingo students.

Same with me. I came here for Russian, as I have said an embarrassing amount of times in many posts. But then I took a look at Ukrainian, and I can't get the sound of it out of my head. You were already looking into Turkish if i remember correctly, so it looks like you have a new course coming your way as well! Congrats!

Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, and maybe Arabic...more than enough for me. I remember you talking about Hungarian before. I may have to dabble in that, although, dabbling in a language like that probably won't bring many results.

I feel the same way. I wish I could somehow forgo sleep for the next foreseeable years in order to fit in the time for all the langs that interest me!

I wish I had the language learning talent to encompass all the learning I want to do 8-o I am interested in more languages than I can fit into my head...

I am looking forward to learn Ukrainian. It is similar to Russian and it will be easy for me to learn.

I take it by that statement that you already know Russian fluently. Yes, Ukrainian will be a breeze!

I understand a lot Ukrainian, a little bit less Belarusian, can understand some Bulgarian and Serbian. The most difficult for me will be Polish. The Polish pronunciation is more difficult than Russian.

I was under the impression that Belarusian was closer to Russian than Ukrainian, is this not so?

Ukrainian is more closer to Russian than Belorussian is. But Belorussians better understand Polish then Russians and Ukrainians.

I'm excited to have a crack at it! I'll be interested to see what it's like compared to Russian. I will also probably have a go at the placement test just to see if I get anything right (maybe some stuff from Ukrainian to English, I doubt the other way 'round ;)) . Nice to finally see a Slavic language getting ready to launch!

First Slavic language but hopefully not the last one.
