I'm planning a 3 month trip to Ukraine this Spring. Glad to come across this article. Wish I would have read it, before I dropped $100 on A Foreign Affair match (scam) service. Was told after 8 letters, that she didn't feel comfortable away from the translation service. Don't they know that there are translation apps out there. Anyway, I'm an avid hiker and look forward to hitting the trails. I find there aren't any quality language programs for Ukrainian.
