The STARTALK Russian Language and Culture Immersion Program is designed to promote accelerated language learning with integrated knowledge of culture, protocols, and national identity in modern Russia. The program will admit 20 undergraduates from universities and community colleges across the nation, dividing cohorts into two proficiency tracks: Novice and Intermediate. Standards-based and thematically organized curriculum is programmed over five weeks of residential study with 270 hours of structured learning: 125 hours of in-class instruction; 105 hours of self-directed learning activities; and 40 hours of weekend cultural enrichment activities. Participants typically advance one to two ACTFL tiers in language proficiency.
