- Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ
Arizona State University provides an intensive, 3-week, non-residential program in elementary Russian for 24 students from 8--12th grade, bringing them to Novice Mid proficiency in speaking, listening, and reading.
STARTALK students work in small groups in intensive face-to-face sessions on the campus of Arizona State University and, in video sessions with faculty and students from Arizona’s concurrently running Russian language study-abroad program in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
Students use their online sessions to Bishkek to "preview" a study-abroad program they could join in 2018, to meet host families, talk to instructors and students, and to go on "virtual excursions" to the city.
By the end of the program, students set up their own plan for a 2018 visit to Bishkek, choosing a host family, setting up an excursion schedule, etc.
