Ukrainian for Speakers of English Written Exercises: Introductory and Intermediate Levels
Ukrainian for Speakers of English is intended for individuals who have no knowledge of Ukrainian. It is suitable for university students, senior high school students, and adult learners in a home study situation. All of the material is presented from the point of view of a student who knows how to speak English, but who may not know the formal rules of English grammar. Before a new point in Ukrainian grammar is introduced, students are first reminded about what they know, either formally or informally, about a similar structure in English.
The grammar explanations in this text are brief and simple; they convey only as much information as a student can be expected to assimilate in the early stages of learning a second language. Numerous examples, summaries, and charts are included to assist the learner.
The systematic organization of the material ensures that students acquire the ability to use the language competently. Successful completion of the program lays the foundation for further formal and informal acquisition of the language, and for the study and enjoyment of Ukrainian literature.

An expertly-written book that's exactly what I'd hoped for: Extensive yet concise lessons on Ukrainian, from the bottom up.
I've studied this language independently for almost two years, and the book fills a lot of gaps in my knowledge of Ukrainian grammar and vocabulary. My exposure to Ukrainian is mostly limited to apps, reference books, and occasional short conversations. Adding this book really helps to accelerate my knowledge of the language. Let me also highly recommend these free apps: Duolingo, Mondly Ukrainian, and Tobo Ukrainian. I liked them all enough to pay for the Pro version of each one. There are undoubtedly many other apps worth trying in the major app stores.
I haven't found the audio (cassette or digital) yet, but the written lessons in the book still stand on their own.
This book is a must for English speakers who aim to learn Ukrainian!
