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.

Summer 2013 Participant
The best part of the program was the excellent language instruction. The teachers at the National University of Ivan Franko taught the grammar and structure of the Ukrainian language clearly and efficiently, so my classmates and I were able to quickly acquire a base for reading texts. The amount of time spent in class was neither too much nor too little for concentrating on, absorbing, and retaining each day's new material. Language learning was the core goal of the program, and I am very glad that it brought such quick results and was so much fun.

Summer 2013 Participant
The combination of intensive language and culture study and living with a host family make the L'viv program ideal for getting the most out of one's learning experience.

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.
