You can rapidly learn Ukranian! Numerous studies have revealed that in every country, native-speakers use only about 2,500 distinct words and phrases on a daily basis.
Dr. Pimsleur spent his lifetime studying these language building blocks. With the Pimsleur approach, it's not how many words you know, but rather, which words you can use. By aiming each lesson at teaching you to use those 2500 words, the Pimsleur approach teaches you to speak the most Ukranian in the least amount of time.

The Purpose, of CourseThe entire Pimsleur approach is what language learning should be: quick, fun, and easy! Many foreign language students have difficulty learning. Their textbooks teach monotonous drills, grammar rules, and random lists of words. But textbooks alone can never bring it all together.

The Pimsleur approach is ScientificThe Pimsleur approach is so effective because it traces how people developed language. Before written history, we had oral history. Most people, even kings, couldn't write or read in ancient times. Some people can't even read today. Most language learning systems fail to acknowledge that writing only exists to represent the words we speak. So you should ask yourself, "Why should I learn to read Ukranian if I can't even speak it
"The Pimsleur Ukranian course immediately immerses you in a Ukranian conversation to help you grasp the syntax or structure of the Ukranian language.
Amazingly, once you understand the syntax, that chaotic, "foreign" sound so common to language learning disappears instantly. You'll start to recognize words and phrases. The Pimsleur approach will help to change your perception within your first 30 minutes!
