4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive text 29 Jun. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although this book is very comprehensive, I think that it would have been improved by including pronunciation guides as well as translations, at least in the earlier chapters, and use of the accompanying CD is therefore a necessity. I was surprised that the lessons move quickly on to explanations of Ukrainian grammar quite early in the book, but it seems necessary to learn these aspects if one is to understand how the language works and to progress further. In my opinion one needs a lot of time and much patience to progress through the book, but in the end it will be well worth the effort.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 14 Aug. 2013
By lpt63
As with most other language courses it seems, initial audio examples are given from the start at full speed and with little or no repetition. Many sounds are unfamiliar to our ears and no allowance or consideration is given for this. "Complete Ukrainian" falls at the first hurdle for someone wanting to learn enough basic Ukrainian to give them confidence to talk to locals on what may be a one and only visit. This is a course for those who already have a basic knowledge of Ukrainian and I doubt was ever tested by someone with no knowledge before going to print.

4.0 out of 5 stars difficult book for a difficult language 31 Oct. 2013
By Greg - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
Ukrainian language is way past difficult. Cyrillic alphabet, opposite grammar. In this teach yourself book it starts off with "see spot, see spot run" and eases you into more complex reading, writing and speaking. It does a great job of covering the cyrillic alphabet and progresses you through the language into simple conversational situations.

The interactive part of the book is a cool idea as you can hear how words are pronounced, but the implementation is poor. There is no way to slow down the pronunciation or to simply backup up to repeat a word. Instead, there is only a volume control on screen and a repeat...but it repeats from the very beginning of the audio. All in all, its a good book with an i imagine a ton of work went in to making it. One star deduction for the audio control features.
