There is a place waiting in the Heart of Russian Language and Culture JUST FOR YOU!

Novosibirsk is the IDEAL location to immerse yourself in Russian language and culture,  because there are:

- few native English language speakers in our region,

- few foreign language newspapers in our stores,

- few radio and television programs in languages other than Russian,

- many things to enjoy - music, painting, theatre - within walking distance!

This ideal location for Russian study is found in a unique and beautiful academic city - Akademgorodok, just 20 miles south of Novosibirsk, the third largest city in Russia.

On the Akademgorodok campus are 46 research institutes of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Novosibirsk State University, home of The Center for International Educational Programs (CIEP).  CIEP is part of the Foreign Language Department.

Adding to the attractiveness of this unique academic setting is the untouched wilderness stretching for thousands of miles around our academic community. In the winter this countryside is transformed into a fairy-tale wonderland. In the summer sandy beaches invite sunbathers, swimmers, and boaters to enjoy warm breezes along the shores of our large lake.

Since 1989, our IDEAL landscape and IDEAL academic community have been host to hundreds of foreign students, businessmen, and missionaries from the USA, Canada, Japan, France, Great Britain, Finland, Norway, Germany, Austria, Australia, Turkey, Korea, and China who have immersed themselves in the Russian language and experienced Russian culture.

Our team of highly-qualified professional language teachers have created a warm, friendly, and family-like learning atmosphere. We are ready to design a program of Russian language and culture for your needs.

WELCOME to the Heart of Russia -  where you can immerse yourself in Russian Language and Russian Culture!
