The Ukrainian Language
Ukrainian belongs to the Slavic branch of the Indo-European language family. It has three, closely-related divisions:
East Slavic: Ukrainian, Belarusian, Rusyn, Russian
West Slavic: Czech, Slovak, Polish
South Slavic: Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian; Macedonian, Bulgarian
These are related as well to the Baltic language family (Latvian and Lithuanian). They are less closely related to Germanic and other Indo-European languages. Ukrainian is the mother tongue of more than 50 million people. It is spoken in Ukraine as the official language and is spoken as well in parts of Russia, Belarus, Poland, and Slovakia.
There are Ukrainian language publications in Russia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Canada, and the United States. There are three major dialects of Ukrainian -- Northwest, Southwest, and East; they are mutually intelligible.
The Pimsleur course teaches Standard Ukrainian, the official state language.
