2. Ukrainian Education is Good and Affordable
Education is another thing that makes Ukraine attractive to the foreigners, especially students wishing to get a medical or engineering education abroad. Ukrainian education is popular among students from African and Asian countries such as Libya, Bangladesh, India, China, Nigeria, Egypt, Jordan, and others.
Tuition fees are not as high as it is in the most of the educational establishments in other parts of the world. Universities offer dozens of programs and scholarships for applicants from foreign countries.Thus, if you want to obtain a degree and not spend the rest of your life paying off student loans, consider studying in Ukraine.
Also, it is not only affordable and of the excellent quality, but also fun. There are plenty of remarkable places to visit here, and as a member of a student program, you will be taken to some of them. You will make friends for life and develop superb interpersonal skills as nowhere else in the world.
The only problem about it is that you need to learn the language, as most of the programs are not available in English.
3. Ukrainian Is The World’s 3rd Most Beautiful Language
Based on the results of the languages competition that took place in Paris in 1934, Ukrainian is the third most beautiful by its phonetics, vocabulary, phraseology, and sentence structure after French and Persian.
Also, it’s officially the second most melodic language in the world after Italian. Just listen to the way it sounds in their songs or how it is read in their books. It truly is a breathtaking experience, especially when people speak it properly.
4. Learning Ukrainian Helps You Easily Understand Other Languages
Once you learn Ukrainian, you can understand Polish, Czech, Belarusian, Russain or other Slavic languages because they are quite similar.

5. Ukraine is Open for Business
As a student or a visitor, if you know the language, you will get to explore the business opportunities in the state. It has lots of freedom for young entrepreneurs, and the laws are quite flexible to help everyone start their business in the shortest time.
