What You?ll Learn
In the first 10 lessons, you?ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You?ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.
In the next 10 lessons, you?ll build on what you?ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You?ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.
In the final 10 lessons, you?ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the Ukrainian language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You?ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.
Reading Lessons are included at the end of Lesson 30 to provide you with an introduction to reading Ukrainian. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with Ukrainian pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.
The Pimsleur Method
We make no secret of what makes this powerful method work so well. Paul Pimsleur spent his career researching and perfecting the precise elements anyone can use to learn a language quickly and easily. Here are a few of his ?secrets?:
The Principle of Anticipation
In the nanosecond between a cue and your response, your brain has to work to come up with the right word. Having to do this boosts retention, and cements the word in your mind.
Words, phrases, and sentences are selected for their usefulness in everyday conversation. We don?t overwhelm you with too much, but steadily increase your ability with every lesson.
Graduated Interval Recall
Reminders of new words and structures come up at the exact interval for maximum retention and storage into your long-term memory.
You work on multiple aspects of the language simultaneously. We integrate grammar, vocabulary, rhythm, melody, and intonation into every lesson, which allows you to experience the language as a living, expressive form of human culture.
Learning in Context
Research has shown that learning new words in context dramatically accelerates your ability to remember. Every scene in every Pimsleur lesson is set inside a conversation between two people. There are no drills, and no memorization necessary for success.
The Pimsleur Method + active learner participation = success. This method works with every language and every learner who follows it. You gain the power to recall and use what you know, and to add new words easily, exactly as you do in English.
The Ukrainian Language
Ukrainian, a Slavic language, is the mother tongue of more than 50 million people. There are 3 major dialects of Ukrainian -- Northwest, Southwest, and East; they are mutually intelligible. Pimsleur's Ukrainian teaches Standard Ukrainian, the official state language of Ukraine.
