Description

Language Link offers a work-study program in which participants spend about half their time studying Russian and the other half teaching English or their mother tongue as a foreign language in Russia. The option of translation work is also possible for applicants with a sufficiently high level of Russian. The program is an excellent opportunity to acquire paid international work experience while learning Russian or improving existing Russian language skills. Although the standard combination is 12 academic hours of study and up to 18 academic hours of teaching per week, participants may change the number of hours they teach and study. Participants will receive top-quality Russian lessons in small groups of at most six students.
