Beginning Ukrainian has twenty lessons that are thematic in content, much like any contemporary language textbook. For each chapter, the user begins by selecting either “Text and Exercises” or “Video.” The texts in the lessons are dialogues, and the videos in the lessons are the performance of these same dialogues by native speakers of Ukrainian. The text of the dialogues is interactive in that the student can click on any word or sentence in order to hear it in Ukrainian or translated into English. The toolbar and menus at the top of the screen above the dialogue contain many options that permit the user to select how he/she wants to work with the texts. There are several different types of activities designed for practice with the texts, including multiple choice fill-in-the-blank questions, dictation, and flashcards.
