2nd, 3rd, and 4th-Year Russian: Materials provided on site. Participants should bring Russian-English/English-Russian dictionaries.
The program provides a deep immersion experience for second, third, and forth-year students.
Students spend 4 hours each morning in Russian class and 1-2 hours most afternoons working in small groups with language coaches to complete practical, out-of-the-classroom activities. Activities range from formal excursions to informal outings, but are always tied closely to classroom instruction.
Students live one-on-one with host families. Most weekends are devoted to overnight trips with language coaches to sites of historical or cultural significance.

ABOUT THE LOCATION
ASU's 2018 Project GO Russian programs will be held in the Russian-speaking city of Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. Situated at the base of the 15,000-foot tall Tian-Shan mountain range, Bishkek is a vibrant city of 1 million with a rich and colorful blend of Central Asian, Russian and Western influences. Russian is the predominant language of the city. Modern Bishkek is known for its hospitality, sight-seeing attractions, and its plethora of youth-oriented cafes and eateries.
