University of Lyon and publisher Pocket team up to release self-study textbook for French people to learn Ukrainian
The French publishing house Pocket, jointly with the University of Lyon, published the first self-study textbook for the French people to learn the Ukrainian language.
The website of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine announced that the textbook is compiled according to the Pocket publisher's method "tout de suite" — "learning the language now."
It consists of two parts of 20 lessons for beginners to learn the vocabulary and grammar of the Ukrainian language.
The lessons are presented as dialogues with a translation into French and an indication of the correct pronunciation of words in relation to French phonetics. The book also contains a Ukrainian-French dictionary and a grammar guide.
Within the linguistic project of the publishing house Langue pour tous ("Language for all"), the textbook was compiled by the Ukrainian couple of philologists Natalia and Mykhailo Dubiak. They are teachers of the French language and graduates of the Department of Romance Philology of Ivan Franko Lviv University.
For the "Ukrainien tout de suite" textbook, they also prepared texts about the history of Ukraine, Ukrainian landmark cities, culture, and prominent figures of the past and present.
The textbook will be available on electronic platforms in France on April 6.
