Program Reviews:
Summer 2013 Participant
I learned that it is important to learn Ukrainian on its own terms. Many students come to Ukraine with a knowledge of Polish and Russian, and these languages will give them a leg up with Ukrainian. But thinking in Ukrainian will bring rewarding results for those trying to immerse themselves in the language.
Patrick Michael Callen, Summer 2012 Participant
The academic side of the program is structured in a manner that allows students to quickly acquire basic understanding and proficiency in Ukrainian. Students are not required to have any prior language study to participate in the program, but, in my opinion, some prior study of a Slavic language will benefit the student, as the summer Language Institute is an accelerated, six-week course meant to provide the equivalent of one year of study at the University of Kansas. Students with prior language experience will be better prepared for the intensive language study that awaits them.
Patrick Michael Callen, Summer 2012 Participant
The daily interactions with Ukrainians were the most rewarding part of my experience abroad. Every conversation, every transaction made in a shop or at a kiosk, and every academic lesson gave me the opportunity to constantly practice Ukrainian. Constant practice and the necessity of using Ukrainian exclusively is something that is hard to recreate in the United States.
Amy Lynn Murphy, Summer 2012 Participant
I learned more about the obvious cultural and economical differences between the West and East in Ukraine but was able to put it into historical and political contexts. Language experience and instruction was exemplary.
