Placing language learning within a cultural framework enlivens the learning process and jumpstarts contextual conversations in the classroom. Experienced instructor Dr. Alla Nedashkivska has crafted a textbook that presents a modern version of Ukrainian, one that will encourage students' interest in learning, with the goal of building proficiency in the language and knowledge of Ukrainian culture and society. This text is excellent for studies over a longer period, using the intermediate exercises to start, then progressing to the advanced exercises to cement comprehension. An absolute must for anyone teaching or learning Ukrainian at senior levels.
Alla Nedashkivska is an Associate Professor at the University of Alberta in the department of Modern Languages and Cultural Studies, where she teaches several Ukrainian language and Slavic Linguistics courses. She lives in Edmonton, Alberta.

Editorial Reviews

"An advanced-level textbook of the Ukrainian language in English has long been overdue. Indeed, for over two decades no such book was published in North America. [Ukrainian through its Living Culture] is the most visually attractive of all the textbooks of Ukrainian published in English thus far... It offers what none of its forerunners did-a wealth of pictures in colour and well-spaced, easy-to-read print in black and occasionally in red.... Any path-blazing work, and this surely is one, is bound to leave some bases uncovered." Yuri Shevchuk, Journal of Ukrainian Studies, 2010-2011
