Exercise 6.3A

A number of situations may arise when you need to write a brief description, in Ukrainian, of your studies and interests. Look at the examples on page 6.1 and use these to write a similar text about yourself. Before you do so you may wish to revise the present and past tenses (Units 8 and 10) and cases of nouns (Units 7 and 15) in Read Ukrainian!

Write sentences, in Ukrainian, giving the following information (true or fictional!). In each case click on 'show answer' to see a suggested response.
