Program Details

The program provides a deep language immersion experience for second, third, and fourth-year students.

Students spend 4 hours each morning in Russian classes 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.
