***Updated June 9, 2020***
While SRAS believes that nothing can completely replace the experience of study abroad, we understand that there are students who need to earn language credit and/or advance their language skills this summer.
Our partners in in Russia, Ukraine, and Kyrgyzstan will be running online language courses this summer. In addition to expertise in language teaching, they additionally bring to you a connection to their city, through additional interactions with peer tutors and virtual excursions. The format will vary slightly by location and we invite you to contact us for an initial consultation on best fit. Our objective is to provide you with the most cost-effective way to advance your language skills. From $35/week for maintenance/refresher to ~$250/week intensive courses, you can affordably bring your Russian to another level.
