    Summary

    Discover Russian is a four-week introduction to Russian language and culture course that will be offered by American Councils for International Education and Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST), to 24 rising 6th-12th graders at TJHSST’s campus in Fairfax County, Virginia. The program fosters interest in Russian language and culture among students with and without access to Russian programs in their schools and/or communities by offering two levels of classes: Level One for those new to Russian and Level Two for those with prior Russian language experience. Although placement will be determined by language proficiency and not age, differentiation will occur to accommodate students’ varying rates of learning and levels of maturity. Classes will meet for six hours each day for 19 days, for a total of 114 hours of immersion instruction. Participants in Level One will reach Novice-Mid level proficiency by program’s end, while those in Level Two will attain Novice-High and sometimes Intermediate Low.
