Very worthwile, but spoke a lot of English

CIEE SbB was a great experience, overall. I learned so much about the differences between American and Russian culture, life and language. I was satisfied w/ the academics and learned a lot about the language which was my purpose. One downside was that I spoke a lot of English. As a Russian major, I wish I would've spoken more Russian. Other than that the immersion was great. If you're not a Russian major CIEE offers a program for you, too. On that there are many excursions and cultural experiences. Very worthwhile.
