This module is an intensive six-week Russian language and culture course in Russia which brings the student's proficiency in Russian up to a level equivalent to that reached by students passing RU2002 or RU2004 at the appropriate level (Grade 11). Twenty hours of classes per week in conversation, grammar, vocabulary, translation, and Russian cultural background. Students live with families where little if any English is spoken, thus enhancing their immersion in the Russian language. It is available only to students who are unable to take Level 2 Russian modules as part of their sub-Honours course in Semesters 1 and 2 of their second year of study.
