Ukrainian Alphabet, IPA Pronuncation, Video, Virtual Keyboard...

Hi Ukrainian learners! 😃


The Ukrainian alphabet is the set of letters used to write Ukrainian, the official language of Ukraine. It is one of the national variations of the Cyrillic script. The modern Ukrainian alphabet consists of 33 letters.


In today's lesson, you will learn how to write the different letters of the Ukrainian alphabet, how to pronounce these letters whether it is through the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), or through a video with the pronunciation of the letters by a native speaker.


You will also find at the end of this lesson a virtual keyboard to be able to type each special character of this language.
