For more than 35 years, American Councils has operated comprehensive language immersion programs in Russia for thousands of students and scholars. Participants greatly benefit from individual attention in our small classes and from interaction with host faculty who have extensive experience in second language acquisition. In addition to classroom learning, American Councils emphasizes language immersion outside of the academic program through:

- volunteer opportunities at sites such as local public schools, charity organizations, and international NGOs;
- cultural excursions, discussion groups, and other extracurricular activities; and
- life with Russian host-families where participants become fully immersed in the language, culture and cuisine of Russia.

All participants receive undergraduate- or graduate-level academic credit through Bryn Mawr College.
