Introduction to Ukrainian: Lesson 3

The word for I want is хочу.

You want to say I want it, so you will write I it want.

?I want it|Я це хочу

?I don’t want|Я не хочу

You replace the word це into цього in negative sentences.

Let’s try.

?I don’t want it|Я цього не хочу

ти verbs end in ш.

?Don’t you want it?|Ти цього не хочеш?

?Do you want it?|Ти це хочеш?

Remember the infinitive:

?to speak|говорити

What was:

?I speak Ukrainian|Я говорю українською

We can apply ю to и rule for the word говорити.

?Do you speak Ukrainian?|Ти говориш українською?

The word for what about is о.

?I speak Ukrainian. And what about you?|Я говорю українською. О ти?

?I am from England. And you?|Я з Англії. О ти?

?And don’t you speak Ukrainian?|О ти не говориш українською?

The word for well is добре.

In order to know how to use it, first remember how to say:

?I want it|Я це хочу

The word добре follows the same position as це, and it goes before the verb.

?I speak Ukrainian well|Я добре говорю українською
