Ukrainian is a beautiful language and congratulations to the Ukrainian team.
I started to try to learn this course last night and I like unexpectedly, so I'll continue slowly :)
Congratulations once again to the Ukrainian team, the course is excellent and I enjoy it.
I wait also for Russian (I know it a bit), I love very Slavic languages, and my native Serbian is a little similar to Ukrainian and they have a lot of the same or similar words:
English | Ukrainian | Serbian:
mom | мама | мама
dad | тато | тата
aunt | тітка | тетка
brother | брат | брат
sister | сестра | сестра
school | школа | школа
student | студент(ка) | студент(киња)
there | там | тамо
honey | мед | мед
tea | чай | чај
whose | чий | чији
my | мій | мој etc.
I have a problem still with the Ukrainian keyboard, because I'm not accustomed yet, and the Serbian keyboard is very similar to English. :)
Interesting: I have a female friend who is a pure Ukrainian, grew up in Ukraine and now is studying and living in Germany. When she came first time to Serbia, remained is one month and had is a beautiful fun and strong impressions about it. She is a very dear, modest and nice girl. :)
I hope that some Ukrainians and people who learn this language will be interested in Serbian language in the future, so we'll consort. :)

Sorry, I wanted to share my experience and opinion with you. Happy learning and greetings!
I had a private teacher with whom I studied about 9 hours a week for several years. Had it not been for her, I would have never learned. Although it is limited, I use ABBYY Lingvo as well as several actual books: -a huge heavy dictionary- Великий Тлумачний Словник сучасної укр. мови (http://padaread.com/?book=50054); Verb book by Сокіл, Новіцька, Товкало Дієслівне керування в укр. мові (http://library.odmu.edu.ua/catalog/209784). And I read read read books. But most of it was in my teacher's head.
