3 weeks 2021 Russian Language Summer School

The ASPIRANTUM school has provided me with the opportunity to extend not only my language skills but my social and exploration talents which have led me to construct goals I never knew I desired. 

At my university, I have been participating in taking Russian for a year. A year is a long time, 365 days, and hours and hours of Russian a day. Within three weeks at the ASPIRANTUM school, I have learned more information about the Russian language than I have in an entire year. 

Both instructors provided, not only taught me how, why and what to say in Russian but the history of the language as well. I believe in order to love a language you must also understand why you love it, and with no knowledge of why Russians use this word over that one or where that word originated from or who decided it was a good idea to implement this rule, it is simply impossible. Now that I have found a love for Russian I get to use this passion to fuel my learning in the future. This provides an easier understanding as to why I want to continue learning such a tough language, but also what I want to do with it. I plan on becoming some type of businesswoman. I want to work to take over my dad’s company or build my own. Because I have been given a chance to study my beloved language abroad, not only can I understand the economic market out here, but now I have contacts here. But how will I communicate with them? Russian! Russian! Russian! I get to practice my skills every day now with my friends and coworkers when I am back in the States in order to practice and to continue broadening my understanding of the international market.
