Student Feedback

'This was the best course I've ever taken, I think it may be the best decision of my life. If everyone took beginners' Russian, there wouldn't have been a Cold War. Europe wouldn't be divided by East and West. The world would be wonderful.'

'My favorite course, I really loved it. The Russian language is so beautiful.'

'In–class rehearsals, oral examples of new material and discussions with the lecturer about the new grammar were all really helpful. I appreciated the detailed feedback provided in assignments and a clear expectation of what we need to know to succeed.'
