At Drops, we believe in the power of connecting through language. As we witness the devastating war in Ukraine, our team has been transforming our loss for words into a set of initiatives to support the Ukrainian people as they seek safety and peace for their country.
Drops Provides Free Language Courses to Ukrainian Refugees: We want to help those impacted by the war feel more at ease in their new surroundings, without the barrier of language. As of April 20, 2022, we’ve donated over 70,000 language courses. These premium memberships unlock lessons in all of our languages including Polish, German, and Hungarian. See here for more information on this program.
Kahoot! Stands With Ukraine: Our parent company, Kahoot! has made an emergency aid donation to Save the Children and the Norwegian Refugee Council to support and protect Ukrainian children, families, and refugees. Find out more about how Kahoot! stands with Ukraine.

About Our Ukrainian Language Course:
Our Ukrainian course was created with those who are helping Ukrainian refugees in mind.
When deciding which lessons to include, our team focused on the most essential vocabulary. If you are welcoming a family of refugees or volunteering, you will find useful questions such as “how are you?” and learn the names of food and household supplies.
The course is also for those interested in preserving the language and culture of the Ukrainian people. Get started with the Ukrainian alphabet, learn the names of some Ukrainian food items, and even start conjugating verbs!
We are excited to introduce Ukrainian basics in the app and to continue to grow the course with time!
Meet the Team:
It normally takes four months for us to add a new language to the app, but we were determined to add Ukrainian to the Drops family as soon as possible. Our compact team at Drops was joined by Anna Ohoiko, the Ukrainian educator behind UkrainianLessons.com. The course was voiced in record time by Mariia Shevchenko.
