Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I had a wonderful experience with the EESA program. I complete three eight week long Russian language courses online and able to transfer the twelve credits I earned back to my university. I now feel I can conduct many different conversations in the Russian language and I am grateful to my instructor for guiding me during the three courses. The program provides a stress-free and enjoyable way to learn the Russian language and I recommend this program to any student who wishes to learn the Russian language and/or is in need of language credits
