I am writing to let you know about ACLI (The Advanced Critical Languages Institute for Russian Immersion), a new Study Abroad opportunity in Russia for Summer 2010. I would be most grateful if you would list it along with the following information and description among your summer opportunities and link to our website:


ACLI Website: <> 


Program: The Advanced Critical Languages Institute for Russian Immersion (ACLI) is a Total Immersion Russian language program designed jointly by the State University of New York at Stony Brook and Astrakhan State University (Astrakhan, Russia).


Dates: ACLI will be held in Astrakhan, Russia, June 17-August 3, 2010.


Credit: 6-9 transferable credits from the State University of New York at SUNY's (public) tuition rates.


Eligibility: Undergraduates and Graduates students with 2+ years of Russian may apply.


Description: The goal of ACLI is Ultimate Attainment (full fluency in a non-native language) in Russian, a Critical Language. ACLI students speak only Russian for the duration of the 7-week program. ACLI students enjoy wonderful Russian-speaking homestays while studying for 4-5 hours daily in small groups with local Russian pedagogy specialists. ACLI also includes lectures, films, student activities clubs and visits to nearby Volgograd and Elista.


ACLI is especially appropriate for those who have already studied in Russia on a standard Study Abroad Program and want to be challenged further.


Please list ACLI on your listserv.


Thank you in advance for your willingness to help us spread the word about ACLI.


Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!
