Russian Language Immersion in Moscow

The Kremlin, at the very heart of Moscow, has been the home of power for grand princes, religious leaders, tsars and most recently, presidents.

For Westerners, the adjacent Red Square, recognized by the bulbous, multicolored domes of St. Basil's Cathedral, has been an image synonymous with the Soviet Union and the Russian state. Surrounding this center are Stalin's so-called Seven Sisters: a harsh reminder of Communism in Russia.

Along the path to the Kremlin, along Novy Arbat, high-rises are lined up like giant dominoes waiting to tumble. However, tucked away are the remnants of the older city, which include several beautiful neo-classical houses and impressive structures, such as the Bolshoi Theater.

The most surprising treasures of Moscow are the underground palaces of the metro system, a system which is also internationally recognized for its efficiency.

One aspect of the city that remains constant to this day is the harshness of Moscow's winter. Despite the bitter cold, nothing compares to the beauty of St. Basil's Cathedral in the falling snow. In contrast, summer temperatures over 30C (86F) are not unusual.

Our Russian Language immersion allows you plenty of time to discover Moscow!

However, justly famous Russian hospitality will play its part in overcoming most of these problems. We usually select families without any foreign language knowledge (English speaking Russians are desperate for some English conversation).

However, if a participant feels uneasy about this approach, we will find them a host family where English is spoken. Our experience shows that even absolute beginners will be able to communicate after the first few days.
