Thus to say [I am a student], Ukrainians just say [I student] or Я студент.
To say [I am from America], Ukrainians, just say [I from America] or Я з Америки .
In questions, the verb [is / am / are] is also dropped. To ask [Are you a student?], just say [You student?], i.e. Ви студент?.
Similarly, to ask [Where are you from?], just say [From-where you?], i.e. Звідки ви?.
Note that the Ukrainians use a single word Звідки to express the phrase [from where].
The Ukrainian words for [Yes] and [No] are Так and Ні, respectively.
Я is the word for the pronoun [I]. ви is the formal form of the pronoun [you].
