How to Learn Ukrainian: A Fast (Food) Tutorial

Our team has been working very hard to learn the language (Russian and Ukranian) in order to effectively communicate with our hosts, translators, and the children. Of course, they are difficult languages with unfamiliar letters.  As we work on learning the letters and sounding out words, one strategy that helps is identifying familiar words and terms. What better training ground than good old McDonalds! Check out these  signs and try to read them yourself!

Beef Roll

Happy Meal

Latte and Americano

Now that you've mastered McDonalds, try to read the Ukranian words below at this Italian-style restaurant. Leave your guesses below. Answers tomorrow!
