About Myself

For many years I struggled to learn Spanish, and I still knew no more than about twenty words. Consequently, I was extremely frustrated. One day I stumbled upon this method as I was playing around with word combinations. Suddenly, I came to the realization that every language has a certain core group of words that are most commonly used and, simply by learning them, one could gain the ability to engage in quick and easy conversational Spanish.

I discovered which words those were, and I narrowed them down to three hundred and fifty that, once memorized, one could connect and create one’s own sentences. The variations were and are infinite ! By using this incredibly simple technique, I could converse at a proficient level and speak Spanish. Within a week, I astonished my Spanish-speaking friends with my newfound ability. The next semester I registered at my university for a Spanish language course, and I applied the same principles I had learned in that class (grammar, additional vocabulary, future and past tense, etc.) to those three hundred and fifty words I already had memorized, and immediately I felt as if I had grown wings and learned how to fly.

At the end of the semester, we took a class trip to San José, Costa Rica. I was like a fish in water, while the rest of my classmates were floundering and still struggling to converse. Throughout the following months, I again applied the same principle to other languages—French, Portuguese, Italian, and Arabic, all of which I now speak proficiently, thanks to this very simple technique.

This method is by far the fastest way to master quick and easy conversational language skills. There is no other technique that compares to my concept. It is effective, it worked for me, and it will work for you. Be consistent with my program, and you too will succeed the way I and many, many others have.

Introduction to the Program

 Сделать закладку на этом месте книги

People often dream about learning a foreign language, but usually they never do it. Some feel that they just won’t be able to do it while others believe that they don’t have the time. Whatever your reason is, it’s time to set that aside. With my new method, you will have enough time, and you will not fail. You will actually learn how to speak the fundamentals of the language—fluently in as little as a few days. Of course, you won’t speak perfect Ukrainian at first, but you will certainly gain significant proficiency. For example, if you travel to Ukraine, you will almost effortlessly be able engage in basic conversational communication with the locals in the present tense and you will no longer be intimidated by culture shock. It’s time to relax. Learning a language is a valuable skill that connects people of multiple cultures around the world—and you now have the tools to join them.

How does my method work? I have taken twenty-seven of the most commonly used languages in the world and distilled from them the three hundred and fifty most frequently used words in any language. This process took three years of observation and research, and during that time, I determined which words I felt were most important for this method of basic conversational communication. In that time, I chose these words in such a way that they were structurally interrelated and that, when combined, form sentences. Thus, once you succeed in memorizing these words, you will be able to combine these words and form your own sentences. The words are spread over twenty pages. In fact, there are just nine basic words that will effectively build bridges, enabling you to speak in an understandable manner (please see Building Bridges). The words will also combine easily in sentences, for example, enabling you to ask simple questions, make basic statements, and obtain a rudimentary understanding of others’ communications. I have also created Memorization-Made-Easy Techniques for this program in order to help with the memorization of the vocabulary. Please see Reading and Pronunciation in order to gain proficiency in the reading and pronunciation of the Ukrainian language prior to starting this program.

My book is mainly intended for basic present tense vocal communication, meaning anyone can easily use it to “get by” linguistically while visiting a foreign country without learning the entire language. With practice, you will be 100 percent understandable to native speakers, which is your aim. One disclaimer: this is not  a grammar book, though it does address minute and essential grammar rules (please see footnotes at the bottom of every page). Therefore, understanding complex sentences with obscure words in Ukrainian is beyond the scope of this book.

People who have tried this method have been successful, and by the time you finish this book, you will understand and be understood in basic conversational Ukrainian. This is the best basis to learn not only the Ukrainian language but any language. This is an entirely revolutionary, no-fail concept, and your ability to combine the pieces of the “language puzzle” together will come with great  ease, especially if you use this program prior to beginning a Ukrainian language class.

This is the best program that was ever designed to teach the reader how to become conversational. Other conversational programs will only teach you phrases. But this is the only  program that will teach you how to create your own  sentences for the purpose of becoming conversational.

The Ukrainian Language

 Сделать закладку на этом месте книги

The East Slavic language of Ukrainian has been the subject of a ban and derision by the Russians and often denied the status of a language in its own right. A quote attributed to Czar Nicholas II goes, “There is no Ukrainian language, just illiterate peasants speaking Little Russian,” even though the Ukrainian and Russian lexicons differ by 38% (as opposed to 33% for Spanish and Italian). Outside of Russia, Ukrainian and Russian are accepted as two similar but different languages.

Ukrainian is the official state language of Ukraine and the Crimea, the first of two principal languages for Ukrainians, and one of three official languages for the unrecognized state of Transnistria, of which the other two are Romanian and Russian. It is also a recognized minority language in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Serbia, and Slovakia.

Written Ukrainian uses a variant of the Cyrillic script and there are an estimated forty-five million speakers of the language.

Historical linguists trace the origin of the Ukrainian language to the Old East Slavic, from which it split off about a thousand years ago, of the early medieval state of Kievan Rus’. After the fall of the Kievan Rus’ as well as the Kingdom of Galicia–Volhynia, the language developed into a form called the Ruthenian language. The Modern Ukrainian language has been in common use since the late seventeenth century and has been associated with the establishment of the Cossack Hetmanate.

From 1804 until the Russian Revolution, the Ukrainian language was banned from schools in the Russian Empire, of which the biggest part of Ukraine (Central, Eastern, and Southern) was a part at the time. It has always maintained a sufficient base in Western Ukraine, where the language was never banned, in its folklore songs, itinerant musicians, and prominent authors.

The Ukrainian language can be mutually understood, to a degree, by those speaking Belarusian and Russian.

Memorization Made Easy

 Сделать закладку на этом месте книги

There is no doubt the three hundred and fifty words in my program are the required essentials in order to engage in quick and easy basic conversation in any foreign language. However, some people may experience difficulty in the memorization. For this reason, I created Memorization Made Easy. This memorization technique will make this program so simple and fun that it’s unbelievable! I have spread the words over the following twenty pages. Each page contains a vocabulary table of ten to fifteen words. Below every vocabulary box, sentences are composed from the words on the page that you have just studied. This aids greatly in memorization. Once you succeed in memorizing the first page, then proceed to the second page. Upon completion of the second page, go back to the first and review. Then proceed to the third page. After memorizing the third, go back to the first and second and repeat. And so on. As you continue, begin to combine words and create your own sentences in your head. Every time you proceed to the following page, you will notice words from the previous pages will be present in those simple sentences as well, because repetition is one of the most crucial aspects in learning any foreign language. Upon completion of your twenty pages, congratulations,  you have absorbed the required words and gained a basic, quick-and-easy proficiency and you should now be able to create your own sentences and say anything you wish in Ukrainian. This is a crash course in conversational Ukrainian, and it works!


 Сделать закладку на этом месте книги

In this program, whenever encountering a t’  at the end of verbs, pronounce it as a soft “ts.” For example, “to buy” / kupit’  is pronounced as “kupits” (with a soft sounding “ts”).

Whenever encountering y’y  or u’u , pronounce them as “uo” as in “buoy.”

Kh  — For the Ukrainian language as well as Middle Eastern languages, including Arabic, Hebrew, Farsi, Pashto, Urdu, Hindi, etc., to properly pronounce the kh  or ch  is essential, for example, nacht  (“night” in German) or Chanukah  (a Jewish holiday) or Khaled  (a Muslim name). The best way to describe kh  or ch  is to say “ka” or “ha” while at the same time putting your tongue at the back of your throat and blowing air. It’s pronounced similarly to the sound that you make while clearing your throat of phlegm. *Please remember this whenever you come across any word containing a kh  in this program.

Again, this is not  a pronunciation book. The sole purpose of this book is to provide you with the necessary skills in order to engage in fluent conversational communications. With regards to grammar and pronunciation, you are on your own! 


 Сделать закладку на этом месте книги

The purpose of this book is merely to enable you to communicate in Ukrainian. In the program itself (from start-finish), you may notice that the composition of some of those sentences might sound rather clumsy. This is intentional. These sentences were formulated in a specific way to serve two purposes: to facilitate the easy memorization of the vocabulary and  to teach you how to combine the words in order to form your own sentences for quick and easy communication, rather than making complete literal sense in the English language. So keep in mind that this is not  a phrase book!

As the title suggests, the sole purpose of this program is for conversational use only.  It is based on the mirror translation technique. These sentences, as well as the translations are not  incorrect, just a little clumsy. Latin languages, Semitic languages, and Anglo-Germanic languages, as well as a few others, are compatible with the mirror translation technique.

Many users say that this method surpasses any other known language learning technique that is currently out there on the market. Just stick with the program and you will achieve wonders!

Again, I wish to stress this program is by no  means, shape, or  form a phrase book! The sole purpose of this book is to give you a fundamental platform to enable you to connect certain words to become conversational. Please also read the “Introduction” and the “About Me” section prior to commencing the program.

In order to succeed with my method, please start on the very first page of the program and fully master one page at a time prior to proceeding to the next. Otherwise, you will overwhelm yourself and fail. Please do not  skip pages, nor start from the middle of the book.

It is a myth that certain people are born with the talent to learn a language, and this book disproves that myth. With this method, anyone can learn a foreign language as long as he or she follows these explicit  directions:

* Memorize the vocabulary on each page.

* Follow that memorization by using a notecard to cover the words you have just memorized and test yourself.

* Then read the sentences following that are created from the vocabulary bank that you just mastered.

* Once fully memorized, give yourself the green light to proceed to the next page.

Again, if you proceed to the following page without mastering the previous, you are guaranteed to gain nothing from this book. If you follow the prescribed steps, you will realize just how effective and simplistic this method is.

*In Ukrainian, pronouns have different conjugations when relating to gender:

- “her”: yiyi , his: yogo , its: yogo  / he: vin , she: vona , it: vono , they: vony 

- “my”: miy  (male), moya  (female), moye  (neutral), moi  (plural)

- “their”: yikh  (same for male, female, formal, informal, and neutral)

- “your”: tviy  (male), tvoya  (female), tvoye  (neutral), yikh  (plural)

- “your” (singular formal or plural): vash  (male), vasha  (fem), vashe  (neuter), vashi  (plural)

- “our”: nash  (male), nasha  (female), nashe  (neutral), nashi (plural)

Note: Moikh  is the genitive as well as plural accusative form of the pronoun “my.” This program doesn’t address the nominative, accusative, genitive, dative, instrumental, and prepositional cases since, as previously stated, this isn’t a grammar book.

*This isn’t  a phrase book! The purpose of this book is solely  to provide you with the tools to create your own  sentences!

*In Ukrainian, to indicate “way” we use shlyakh  or zasib . Shlyakh  indicates “road” while zasib  indicates “method.”

I need to think more about this, and what to do

Meni potribno dumaty bil’she pro tse, i shcho robyty

From here to there it’s five minutes

Zvidsy do tudy pyat’ khvylyn

*In Ukrainian, the definition of zvidsy  means “from here.”

*In Ukrainian, mova  is “language” in English. The terms “English” and “Ukrainian” cannot be used on their own when referring to a language. The word “language” always comes after the relevant word: “English” / Anhliys’ka mova;  “Ukrainian” / Ukrayins’ka mova .

Building Bridges

 Сделать закладку на этом месте книги

In Building Bridges, we take six conjugated verbs that have been selected after studies I have conducted for several months in order to determine which verbs are most commonly conjugated, and which are then automatically followed by an infinitive verb. For example, once you know how to say, “I need,” “I want,” “I can,” and “I like,” you will be able to connect words and say almost anything you want more correctly and understandably. The following three pages contain these six conjugated verbs in first, second, third, fourth, and fifth person, as well as some sample sentences. Please master the entire program up until here  prior to venturing onto this section.

I want — Ya khochu

I need — Meni potribno

I can — Ya mozhu

Now You’re on Your Own

If you merely absorb the required three hundred and fifty words in this book, you will then have acquired the basis to become conversational in Ukrainian! After memorizing these three hundred and fifty words, this conversational foundational basis that you have just gained will trigger your ability to make improvements in conversational fluency at an amazing speed! However, in order to engage in quick and easy conversational communication, you need a special type of basics, and this book will provide you with just that.

Unlike the foreign language learning systems presently used in schools and universities, along with books and programs that are available on the market today, that focus on everything  but being conversational, this  method’s sole focus is on becoming conversational in Ukrainian as well as any other language. Once you have successfully mastered the required words in this book, there are two techniques that if combined with these essential words, can further enhance your skills and will result in you improving your proficiency tenfold. However , these two techniques will only succeed if  you have completely and successfully absorbed the three hundred and fifty words. After  you establish the basis for fluent communications by memorizing these words, you can enhance your conversational abilities even more if you use the following two techniques.

The first step is to attend a Ukrainian language class that will enable you to sharpen your grammar. You will gain additional vocabulary and learn past and present tenses, and if you apply these skills that you learn in the class, together with the three hundred and fifty words that you have previously memorized, you will be improving your conversational skills tenfold. You will notice that, conversationally, you will succeed at a much higher rate than any of your classmates. A simple second technique is to choose Ukrainian subtitles while watching a movie. If you have successfully mastered and grasped these three hundred and fifty words, then the combination of the two—those words along with the subtitles—will aid you considerably in putting all the grammar into perspective, and again, conversationally, you will improve tenfold.

Once you have established a basis of quick and easy conversation in Ukrainian with those words that you just attained, every additional word or grammar rule you pick up from there on will be gravy. And these additional words or grammar rules can be combined with the three hundred and fifty words, enriching your conversational abilities even more. Basically, after the research and studies I’ve conducted with my method over the years, I came to the conclusion that in order to become conversational, you first must learn the words and then  learn the grammar.

The Ukrainian language is compatible with the mirror translation technique. Likewise, with this  language, you can use this mirror translation technique in order to become conversational, enabling you to communicate even more effortlessly. Mirror translation is the method of translating a phrase or sentence, word for word from English to Ukrainian, by using these imperative words that you have acquired through this program (such as the sentences I used in this book). Latin languages, Middle Eastern languages, and Slavic languages, along with a few others, are also compatible with the mirror translation technique. Though you won’t be speaking perfectly proper and precise Ukrainian, you will still be fully understood and, conversation-wise, be able to get by just fine.

Congratulations!  You have completed all the tools needed to master the Ukrainian language, and I hope that this has been a valuable learning experience. Now you have sufficient communication skills to be confident enough to embark on a visit to Ukraine, impress your friends, and boost your resume so good luck .

This program is available in other languages as well, and it is my fervent hope that my language learning programs will be used for good, enabling people from all corners of the globe and from all cultures and religions to be able to communicate harmoniously. After memorizing the required three hundred and fifty words, please perform a daily five-minute exercise by creating sentences in your head using these words. This simple exercise will help you grasp conversational communications even more effectively. Also, once you memorize the vocabulary on each page, follow it by using a notecard to cover the words you have just memorized and test yourself and follow that  by going back and using this same notecard technique on the pages you studied during the previous days. This repetition technique will assist you in mastering these words in order to provide you with the tools to create your own sentences.

Every day, use this notecard technique on the words that you have just studied.

Everything in life has a catch. The catch here is just consistency. If you just open the book, and after the first few pages of studying the program, you put it down, then you will not gain anything. However, if you consistently dedicate a half hour daily to studying, as well as reviewing what you have learned from previous days, then you will quickly realize why this method is the most effective technique ever created to become conversational in a foreign language. My technique works! For anyone who doubts this technique, all I can say is that it has worked for me and hundreds of others.
