What is the most valuable thing you gained from this program?
Program Testimonials
Through my language intensive program, I not only gained more language skill, but I also gained confidence in myself and my ability to connect with others. Prior to my program, speaking was very stressful and anxiety inducing for me, because I was not confident in myself or my language abilities. I have found, through the course of my program that when learning a new language, it is okay to make mistakes, and that I shouldn't be afraid to say something incorrectly, because it could be an opportunity for me to learn.

What is unique about this program?
Program Testimonials
What I thought was so special about this program in particular was the ability to personalize your experience. The size of the program was perfect, as it wasn't too big, so communicating with the director and requesting certain excursions outside of the already planned ones was not difficult at all. They were very helpful in doing whatever they could to make your experience a great one, and personalized.

Program Testimonials
I intend to use the Russian language in my career, and after my trip, I am already planning on returning. Not only was I able to receive language credit to apply towards my major, I was also able to improve my language skills that i intend to put to use in my future when i return to Russia, and in whatever career path I follow.
