I wanted to take a few weeks of Russian classes when I went to visit Ukraine in May of 2015. I asked the program a little over a week before my trip if they could setup a teacher for me in Kharkiv. EESA immediately found a professor for me and I was able to customize the number of classes of I wanted to take. I recommend EESA's short term intensive language program because you provided a quality experience for low cost in a timely manner. Before the program, my Russian was very shallow but now I can have basic conversations. My reading and writing Russian have also drastically improved. My professor was excellent. She was very kind and patient, but also gave me comprehensive Russian lessons that helped me greatly improve my Russian language ability. Learning in Ukraine was a great experience because I got to be exposed to Russian everyday outside of the classroom. My favorite part of the program was the quickness of your program finding me a great professor that really helped me learn so much. I have no complaints about the program. If I have the opportunity in the future, I would like to return to Ukraine.
Cultural Immersion in Eastern Europe!

Eastern European Study Abroad is an awesome opportunity to experience Ukrainian and Russian culture firsthand. And as of Fall 2013, with field trips in four more countries, the program offers a completely unique and unforgettable study abroad adventure. During my semester, I had an amazing time visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg, and later Kyiv and Lviv. And living in Kharkiv, the second-largest city in Ukraine after the capital of Kyiv, is perfect in that there are many international students (I met some from Germany, Nigeria, Iraq, and Mexico) as well as thousands of friendly locals. The EESA staff are very kind and helpful. They will go to great lengths to make sure that your stay in Eastern Europe is as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. If you have any connection to Russian or Ukrainian culture, this is without a question the study abroad program for you. And if you don't, you will still return home with fantastic memories and a new appreciation of this part of the world.
