Welcome to RODOSLIV!

We offer Ukrainian language classes for adults who have interest in Ukrainian language and culture and can study independently.

RODOSLIV (ukr. РОДОСЛІВ) means “ancient words of my people”. As you learn the language, meaning of the word will become clear.

 OUR MISSION: to pass the knowledge of Ukrainian language, ancient culture it represents, deep history and outlook on life to anybody who is eager to learn.


If you speak to a person in a language they understand,

that goes to their head. 

If you speak to a person in their own language,

it goes to their heart.


Who could be interested:

– people of Ukrainian heritage
– partners, children and relatives of Ukrainian people
– people who plan to move to or visit Ukraine for business, religious, tourist or other reasons
– students who plan to study in Ukraine
– people who like to expand their horizons and learn about new culture

Classes are offered on-line, on Zoom platform, which gives flexibility and students from any country can join (please take into account difference in time zones).

Beginner level A1 and A2 (group max 6 students or privet) from 15 years old till unlimited.
