AcknoledgementsI should like to express my deepest gratitude to: pan Vasyl Hutkovskyy for assistance with publishing this book. Mrs. J. Zajac for advice and correction of the English part of the textbook. Students of the Department of Architecture, National University Lvivska polytechnika for designing pictures for the dialogues in the textbook.
ForewordThe course book ! (Lets learn Ukrainian!) is designed as a course of Ukrainian as a foreign language. The aim of the book is to teach the student to express himself in Ukrainian. The course consists of 23 Lessons, Keys, a Vocabulary list, a Glossary of terms and a Disk. Lesson description: Each lesson begins with a dialogue in Ukrainian accompanied by its English translation in brackets. We have tried to translate the dialogues as closely as possible to the original text, but, given the very different structure of the two languages, we could not do a word-for-word translation. All the dialogues are related by content. Each dialogue is followed by a list of words.The words are arranged in alphabetical order and presented in the same form as they are used in the dialogue with their base form given in brackets. F. ex: () I thank (to thank); (. .; ) town (Gen.). As for the latter word, it should be noted that English nouns do not have case distinctions, which is why in the English translation of a Ukrainian noun we only indicate the case in brackets to show in which case the Ukrainian noun is used. The following section is called Related words, where we give more words on the topic dealt with in the dialogue. In section 3 we deal with Grammar. In it we explain the grammar that the content and vocabulary of the dialogues made us address. Thus, we managed to encompass in 22 lessons all the main grammar categories of the Ukrainian language, those of case, tense, aspect and mood. Lesson 23 is a concluding lesson and conveys cultural information rather than strictly language. The section Exercises consists of exercises on the grammar dealt with in each lesson. We tried to build exercises using the vocabulary from a given lesson and the previous lessons, always bearing in mind the communicative aspect of the course book. Keys The Keys contain answers to most of the exercises from the Exercise section. Vocabulary The words from the dialogues are presented in the Vocabulary section in their base form. As for verbs, we also indicate the conjugation group they belong to by the figures (1) and (2) in round brackets. Glossary of terms The Glossary of terms is a list of Ukrainian grammar terms with their English equivalents. Disk All the dialogues are recorded on a disk.

1 (THE UKRAINIAN ALPHABET)The Ukrainian alphabet has 33 letters. As a rule, a letter denotes a sound, so, there will be as many sounds in a word as there are letters. The Ukrainian graphic system uses the Cyrillic alphabet, as do other Slavic languages such as: Belorusian, Russian, Bulgarian, Macedonian and Serbian (the latter two have two graphic systems in use: Cyrillic and Latin).
