Here is the sound for "так": http://www.loecsen.com/travel/0-en-67-2-70-free-lessons-ukrainian.html Just click on the word "Yes" in the list to the left.
I hope we can hear some of the words here: http://www.forvo.com/languages/uk/
It looks like this word has more than one meaning: http://www.freelang.net/online/ukrainian.php?lg=gb

I have the same problem here. It's difficult to learn when the programming doesn't pronouns.
Dear Ukrainian learners, Being a native Ukrainian speaker myself, I assert that no words can convey how I am thrilled that this course is finally released! У добру путь!
You are in the same boat I am in RobertLech3. Only my native tongue was Romanian. :)
Is there a difference, like in many languages, between "mother" (more formal/proper) and "mom"(US)/"mum"(UK)? Does мама refer to both, or specifically to "mother" (not the casual "mom")?
For those interested, Ukrainian has the Vocative case, which is used when addressing to persons or objects. It is a literary form and it is still widely employed. For the sake of simplicity (there are words in 6 other cases to learn anyway :-) ), Vocative was not included in this course, but you will be undoubtedly understood when you say мама instead of мамо.
I tried that, it didn't work for me. The only way I could find to remember the letters and their sounds was to link them up to easy words. For instance:
Мама : Mama
Writing a page of words like that made it a lot easier to remember the sounds, and it seems to be how this course is set up. I also wrote out a page of words using the English pronunciation but in Ukrainian Cyrillic, so like this:
Стоп : Stop
As that's even less effort as I don't need to find actual Ukrainian words. If that doesn't work for you though then there's a bunch of videos on Youtube going through the alphabet. Including some with puppets which is just great.
