Russian Language Institute
The Russian Language Institute will offer second-, third-, and fourth-year Russian in an online/remote learning format. Beginning level Russian courses will not be offered in Summer 2021. The program dates will be June 9 to August 4. The program will no longer be considered an in-country immersion program, due to the remote format, but it will retain some of the extra-curricular activities. Program participants will have daily classes, will attend extracurricular activities, and will have individual sessions with tutors, all via Zoom. All classes, extracurricular activities, and tutoring sessions will be synchronous. Questions can be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
