Ukrainian Language School

Our Language School is unique in the UK. We have been offering Ukrainian language classes for over 30 years. Our language instructors are native speakers with relevant teaching qualifications and many years of experience of teaching Ukrainian as foreign language.

While learning Ukrainian with us, you will also find out about Ukrainian society, culture and traditions.

For the autumn term, our classes will take place online. Ahead of the winter term (which begins in January), we will be reviewing government guidelines and hope to resume some in-person classes if possible (whilst continuing online classes for students outside London).

This course is for people who have acquired their knowledge of Ukrainian through their families, community schools or who spent a lot of time in a Ukrainian-speaking environment; for those who might have learned the language as children, but who might not have studied it formally.
