After completing a lesson, the message that shows up on one's profile is "___ learned an Ukrainian skill."

Do people say "an Ukrainian"? Where I'm from, we would only say "a Ukrainian."

Same, but it's probably an automatic script that detects 'Ukrainian' begins with a vowel and just decides to throw 'an' before it. :P

I was thinking the same thing. I just wanted to make sure it's not just a regional thing.

Same for me. Just like how "an unicorn" sounds weird.
