Moscow: Russian as a Second Language

Study Abroad

Our Moscow RSL program is specifically geared toward more advanced learners. In addition to intensive Russian language training, students will attend seminars in applied uses for their growing linguistic expertise, and have the opportunity to gear their peer tutoring towards an optional capstone project in translation or interpreting.

Moscow is especially recommended if you are looking to make Russia or Eurasia a part of your career. Moscow is also for those who enjoy a thriving metropolis, filled with places that you've read about. You’ll enjoy an extraordinary opportunity to make potential professional contacts, understand Russia's current development trajectory, and to take in as much Russian and regional culture as possible in one location. Moscow is also surprisingly accessible, with highly efficient public transport, and very affordable with the current ruble/dollar exchange rate.

This program requires at least two semesters of previous Russian language instruction (or equivalent of the A1 level).

Those looking to hit the ground running will want to look at our online courses, which will also earn you SRAS Learning Credit for your future study abroad experience.
