The University of Chicago will once again offer courses in Russian language in our summer program running June 18-July 27, 2012.
In addition to first-year and second-year Russian, we will again offer a unique course in simultaneous interpretation from English to Russian and Russian to English for students beyond the second-year level. These interpretation courses are only offered in the summer program and provide excellent opportunities for students to improve their speaking and listening skills as well as to gain valuable professional experience in an area where they may be called upon to use their Russian skills in the future.
Full course descriptions are included below. Interested students should contact Steven Clancy or consult the program website for more information: http://languages.uchicago.edu/summerslavic/
Interested students should email Steven Clancy and let him know which course they are interested in and if they will POSSIBLY, LIKELY, or DEFINITELY enroll in the program this summer. This helps us to gauge student interest and confirm the courses earlier.
Students with an interest in Polish, Czech, or Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, please contact Steven Clancy . It is not likely we would be able to offer anything in Summer 2012, but Summer 2013 may be possible if there is sufficient demand.
Please pass this announcement along to anyone else you may know who is interested in Slavic languages this summer. The program is also suitable for and open to talented high school students, many of whom in recent years have found our program to be an invaluable introduction to college-level coursework.
