American Councils for International Education is pleased to announce that its Russian Language and Area Studies Program (RLASP) will also be offered for summer study in Tbilisi, Georgia beginning in 2023. For more than 40 years, American Councils programs have provided U.S. students of Russian unique opportunities to engage with the Russian speaking world through intensive study and cultural immersion designed to produce measurable gains in language proficiency and cultural understanding.
The program provides approximately 20 hours per week of intensive Russian language instruction, housing with Russian speaking host families, practice with conversation partners, weekly cultural activities, extended group travel to explore Georgia, and a rich array of opportunities to engage with the host country culture through extracurricular and volunteer activities. A fully trained U.S. Resident Director provides ongoing logistical support and assistance, including 24-hour emergency aid, to participants throughout the program. The American Councils office in Tbilisi is also available to assist and support program participants throughout their time in country. The program is open to both graduate and undergraduate students who have completed at least one year of Russian language study.
Students receive 8 undergraduate/10 graduate academic credits through Bryn Mawr College for successful completion of the summer program.
