Have you recently had a lot of contact with Ukrainians, for example because you have taken in refugees or have Ukrainian students in your class? This free webinar series on the Ukrainian language will help you to connect. Yuliya Kazanova* will introduce you to Ukrainian in two consecutive webinars

The first webinar, on Tuesday 10 May, will focus on the Slavic language family to which Ukrainian belongs. In this webinar, you will learn how Ukrainian relates to the other Slavic languages and there will be an introduction to Ukrainian literature.

The second webinar, on Tuesday 17 May, will involve a crash course in Ukrainian, in which you will learn a little Ukrainian yourself.

The webinars will be given in English. You can choose to participate in both webinars, but they can also be followed separately!
