    Language Problems In Ukraine

    Please tell me if its essential for a tourist to Ukraine to learn their local language and also tell what is their local language. Also if some body can tell if English is widely spoken and understood in main cities of Ukraine and if not what should a tourist to Ukraine do in case of language barrier problems.

    Re: Language Problems In Ukraine

    It's always a good idea to know the basics, no matter where you travel to. They have their own language (Ukrainian) however most people also speak Russian. English is not widely spoken outside of touristic areas.

    I agree that at least minimal proficiency is essential regardless of where you travel. My understanding in that area is that there are so many languages and dialects, you should find out what is prevalent in the area you plan to visit. I heard this from a friend who speaks Russian and they talked about the many dialects there. I also heard English is not that helpful there.

    Re: Language Problems In Ukraine

    English isn't widely spoken over there, so if I were you I'd try to learn the basics of the ukranian language. If you speak some russian you might not face a lot troubles while you visit this place. Don't expect a lot people to speak a good english... most people over there don't even know the baiscs.
