Welcome to the Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian Language School.
Our school has been offering classes for over 30 years. We offer instruction for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced students.
Our classes are taught by Ukraine-born qualified teachers in informal and fun classes. Some of the materials used in our classes include university-level textbooks (such as Ukrainian for Speakers of English by Roma Franko) as well as materials prepared personally to meet the needs of the students in each class. Instruction is presented in clear and naturally progressive lessons and includes oral and written exercises for home study. CDs that accompany the oral exercises for practicing pronunciation are available upon request.
Classes are held on Monday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30pm. Our fall/winter semester begins in late September and the winter/spring semester begins in mid-January. This fall/winter we are starting Monday Jan. 23, 2023, and will go to March 27 or April 3 (depending on a possible holiday break for Family Day). We will NOT meet on the statutory holidays, unless the class collectively agrees to change the date.
Because of COVID restrictions, the classes will be offered via Zoom, accessible online or by phone.
$200 for 10 classes, which includes the $5 annual society fee. Some Ukrainian learning materials are included with your tuition. Students in more advanced classes may need to purchase the textbooks. We accept e-transfers or mailed cheques. (Details provided to those who register.)
