The location of the program in a city that has a rich multi-cultural heritage and the overlapping accumulations of architectural styles gives the city a unique feel, which permeates all aspects of existence in L'viv.

I felt the most rewarded when I was able to understand our tour guide more as the weeks went on. Most of our tours were done primarily in Ukrainian and we had other students translating for us. But as the weeks went on I needed the translating less and I was able to fully immerse myself in the experience.
Amy Lynn Murphy, Summer 2012 Participant
This program was fantastic. I cannot even pick just one thing to describe everything was remarkable. The beautiful city of L'viv, the many cafes, the relationships I made with professors and our host family, and just in general learning to understand the history and culture of an amazing country. It was a very personal program that was carefully adapted to meet the needs and interests of each student.

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.
