Spend a year living with a host family and attending high school in Russia and you’ll have the opportunity to experience life in one of the most geographically and culturally diverse nations on earth! At school, at home, and with your friends you’ll be totally immersed in Russian culture. You’ll have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn a critical language and gain an intimate understanding of this fascinating and complex society.

Things to know

Russians love to speak in idioms and if you learn some of them, they will be very impressed! Many common language expressions feature references to Russia’s rich literary and cinematic history. You’ll probably find that most Russians are very open and will talk frankly about a wide variety of topics. Be prepared for your host family to always be concerned that you’ve had enough to eat. It’s a sign of love!

School Yearlong Program offers you a great opportunity to live and study in another country for a period of up to 11 months.  This program will suit you if you really want to live with a host family, learn a new language and feel a part of a local community.
