A message to those interested in studying Russian in Russia this summer:
We would like to invite you, your students and colleagues to come and
participate in the “Linking the Planet” Summer Language Camp that our
Educational Centre “Cosmopolitan” will be running in four consecutive
two-week sessions during the summer of 2010 in delightful countryside just
outside Novosibirsk, the administrative capital of Siberia and the centre of
Russia. There are still several vacancies available and this is an excellent
opportunity that is not to be missed.
Being comprehensive and unique, and offering very competitive prices, our
program will be an attractive option for your students whom we invite to
participate as volunteer teachers or as international students of the
Russian course. The program is open to schoolchildren, university students
and adults of all ages and levels of Russian. No previous knowledge of
Russian is required. Please help us spread the word about our program to
your students and colleagues. Thanks for your support!
The program is unique in bringing volunteer teachers and international
students from all over the world to Siberia to live, work and study in a
residential setting with Russian students and teachers. This is an excellent
opportunity to learn Russian and get a first-hand experience of the Russian culture and lifestyle.
This structured residential system seeks to develop language, social,
communicative, educational, cultural and health-promoting skills to all participants in an
interesting way according to age and ability.
The aims of this comprehensive program are achieved through the use of
role-play, creativity workshops, exciting cultural and social activities,
and excursions, which, in addition to the structured lessons, more than
provide for a truly unique and beneficial experience which is not to be
