Ukrainian Language Learning

Overview

Ukrainian, or українська мова (“ukrayins’ka mova” transliterated), is a Slavic language and the official language of the nation of Ukraine, the second-largest country in Europe. It is also one of three official languages of Transnistria, an unrecognized country in Eastern Europe.

The Ukrainian language has its closest similarities with the Belarusian and Polish languages, though Polish follows their own version of the Latin alphabet, while Ukrainian has an adapted alphabet based on Cyrillic.

There are about 50 million native speakers of Ukrainian today, with many more using it as their secondary language. We hope you enjoy and find useful our Ukrainian language material here!
