Target group

Ukrainian Intermediate Course 1 is meant for students who have already taken Ukrainian Elementary Courses 1 and 2 or acquired equivalent skills elsewhere (skill level A1.2–A1.3 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, CEFR).


Skill level A2 (on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, CEFR)

After the Ukrainian Intermediate Course 1, students can
•    describe their immediate surroundings (e.g. home)
•    make polite requests
•    read simple texts and write short letters in Ukrainian
•    describe common ailments
•    understand sentences and frequently-used expressions related to the areas of experience most immediately relevant to them


On this course we will revise the topics of the previous courses. We will learn new, expanded grammar and vocabulary. Each lesson will consist of reading texts, dictations, and speaking and listening exercises.

Grammar: revision of noun and it's 6 cases; comparative adjectives; verb past, present and future; adverbs; question words; reciprocal and reflective pronouns.

The course is taught in Ukrainian and English.

Modes of study

The  course comprises 52 lessons (à 45 minutes) as well as independent work. The student workload of a 4 ECTS course is approximately 108 hours  (including lessons and independent work). To  pass the course, participants need to attend the lessons regularly and be active, do  homework and take the final exam, which will be evaluated on scale 0–5.  To pass the course, students need to attend at least about 80 per cent  of the lessons.

You can also participate in the course without taking the final exam, in which case you will not get a performance of the course and no ECTS.


Yuri I. Shevchuk: Beginner's Ukrainian with Interactive Online Workbook, 3rd Integrated edition, chapters 8–11 (we will start by revising the first chapters of the book)

The book is not included in the course fee.

In addition there will be material provided by the teacher (via Moodle). You need also a notebook for practising the writing.
