I am Polish and can't imagine learning this language as just an English speaker omg
I speak danish, and I'm surprised to how many similar words there are in danish and ukrainian!
Did you write the 'i' using the English keyboard or the Cyrillic using another Post-Soviet language? If so, it may help to use a Ukranian keyboard.
Do you say this about something that has been destroyed or finished, like you do in English?
