Fourth-year Russian, 2014

"My Russian improved astronomically during the 4th year Russian program.  Moreover, my ability to feel comfortable asking questions and confidence in pushing myself to use Russian was what helped me excel and gain the most from my CLS experience.

Due to the intense hours of both classroom exercises and homework, plus the extra hours of attention given by my professors, I feel not only prepared for my year of study in Russia, but I feel as though I built the tools to help me address more than simply linguistic and grammatical questions.

CLS was a full immersion experience with amazing professors and classmates, all of whom made the program exceptional.  I would highly recommend CLS to anyone interested advancing or beginning a language."
