Ukrainian Classes

Learn how to read, write and speak Ukrainian, whether you’ve never seen the language before, have some background or speak fluently and want to brush up on your skills.

The Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian School, which has been running for almost 20 years, offers instruction for beginners, intermediate and advanced students taught by Ukraine-born qualified teachers in informal and  fun classes.

There are two terms a year, each 10 weeks. The fall term begins in late September, the winter term in mid-January. The school runs Monday evenings, from 6:45 to 8:45 p.m.

Classes held at St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Church near Vancouver City Hall. (Enter the parking lot off 16th Avenue and Ash Street. Parking is free. Enter the church basement at the  south-east side  door.)


Run by the Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian School Society (registered under the B.C. Society Act).
