My Time in Moscow

My time in Moscow was a great experience. I spent 4 days a week, 3.5 hours a day studying Russian and I absolutely loved it. The weekend and weekday excursions were also very instructing and fun. The opportunity to live in Russia has been a great eye opener to how different the world is from the United States and has definitely given me a new perspective. From this experience I have made good friends and would recommend to everyone to study abroad.

What would you improve about this program?
More inclusion with Russian students.
