These experiences can be customized for your particular course and students. Our goal is to give your students authentic experiences and real connections with your subject material. We do this by introducing your students to individuals abroad, showing them locations in real time, and/or culture as practiced by a member of that culture.
These tours are designed to show your students where history happened, where literature was set, and to given modern local perspectives from abroad on the events and works you are studying today. Like all our support services, these can be customized for your particular course and students.
We’re really grateful for the work SRAS is doing and consider them to be a valued partner.
My students are LOVING the poboltaem sessions.
I really liked the experience of talking with another Russian student and learning about the culture. I learned how diverse cities can be. St Petersburg is like none I have ever seen before. I really would consider studying abroad there.
I think this project is fulfilling my main goal – to get my students to overcome their psychological barrier of speaking and get reassurance that they can indeed can sustain a rather long conversation with a native speaker. I could see that they are more comfortable speaking and expressing rather complex ideas despite the grammatical mistakes, which, however, do not hinder the communication of the message.
