    Book Description:

    Here is an excellent introduction to the Ukrainian language, the first work of its kind published in English, in spite of the fact that there are more than 1,500,000 people of Ukrainian origin in the Unites States. The book offers a brief history of the Ukrainian language, pronunciation of Ukrainian, 39 lessons with reading texts, grammar, conversation, idioms and vocabularies, a Ukrainian-English vocabulary of more than 2,000 words, grammatical tables, and map showing where Ukrainian is spoken.
