A report on the FAVOR Project at the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies
An introduction to - and an invitation to visit - the Language Repository set up by the Centre for East European Language Based Area Studies (CEELBAS), hosting teaching resources and other materials for Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak and Ukrainian.
"A Taste of Ukrainian" is a collection of resources giving potential learners a taste of the Ukrainian language, and basic information about Ukraine - in Ukrainian. The materials can be used either for independent study, by sixth-formers hoping to study Ukrainian as part of a university degree, or by those thinking of learning the language for communication with friends and family. Each set of resources consists of one or more slide shows (in ppt format) and supporting notes. The resources can also be used by teachers to supplement class materials (at A1/A2 level).
Together with slide shows 2.2 and 2.3, this resource enables learners who know the alphabet to start reading and understanding words in Ukrainian. The notes contain some basic grammar explanations and a list of vocabulary used in the slides(A1).
A slide show, to be used in conjunction with 2.1 (Notes), encouraging learners of Ukrainian to start understanding and using easy words and phrases (A1).
A slide show, to be used in conjunction with 2.1 (Notes), helping learners of Ukrainian to understand words and phrases by associating them with words in other languages they may know (A1).

This is a version of slide show 3.2, with illustrations but no text, for use in class as a listening exercise and to elicit simple descriptions (A1/A2). A text which can be read out by the teacher is given in the Notes (3.1).
Together with slide show 4.2, these notes provide an introduction to interesting places in Ukraine - in Ukrainian. The notes briefly discuss the locative case (enabling learners to say where a place is) and contain a list of vocabulary from the slides (A1).
This slide show shows interesting places in Ukraine, with text in Ukrainian. The slides are animated, allowing them to be used both by students wanting to learn the vocabulary, or in class, to present new material (including the locative case), or revise words and grammar covered previously. Suggestions for use are provided in the notes (4.1). The level is A1 for independent study, but could be extended to A2 in class, to elicit more complex language.
Together with slide show 5.2, these notes provide an introduction to Ukrainian Easter customs and food - in Ukrainian. The notes contain a brief introduction to the present tense(enabling learners to say what they do and eat on special occasions) and a list of vocabulary from the slides (A1/A2).
