Hear from our students about virtual immersion

William Sweek “When I think back on the Beloit College CLS 2021 summer Russian program, I am struck by how close we became in those weeks. I was deeply moved by the fact that we had all been brought together by a shared fascination with the language. Not only did I learn an enormous amount of Russian (enough for me to finish the major a year early at my college!) but I found, for those several weeks, a real joy in the community we shared, both among students and professors. In so many ways, that program was a truly idyllic language learning experience, and I feel very grateful that I had the chance to be a part of it not once, but twice.” William Sweek, Advanced Russian Student, MA Candidate, University of Chicago

Mary Elliot “After stepping away from academia and Russian studies for over a decade, I decided to return to pursue a PhD in Comparative Literature with Russian as my primary area of study. In order to prepare to dive back into this space, I joined the virtual summer CLS program at Beloit and it was a truly marvelous experience. In all my years of language study, both overseas and in the US, I had never experienced such tremendous growth in my skills and understanding in such a short time. The teachers are truly the best I have ever had and the experience — the most productively challenging and supportive imaginable! On a 10-point scale, I give this program an 11!”  - Mary Elliot, Advanced Russian Student, PhD Candidate
