The cultural and educational representation of a country among other countries and among foreigners, which are temporarily staying on the territory of the country representative, has a couple of constituents and unfolds its politics on many levels. One way of cultural and educational representation of a country on the foreign world market is the formation of a conditionalmap that showswhere the learning of the country’s language can be done in other countries.That is why we created a virtual journey through centres of Ukrainian studies, which are unofficial ambassadors of Ukraine, through whichthe world community can join in learning and studying our country’s language and culture.In addition to foreign policy strategy there is also an internal one, which is presented in the teaching of the Ukrainian language to foreigners, who have decided to get a higher education in Ukraine. The linguodidactics of Ukrainian as a foreign language is only being formed as a scientific branch and that is why there are many gaps in this field. At the present an active scientific search is underway to find the principles of methodology of teaching the subject and there is also an attempt to find the optimal ways of learning a language in all of its functional levels.
