Teaching Method

The Russian Domestic Flagship institutions approach Flagship training following similar principles, but consistent with local conditions and traditions at each institution.  In all cases, the approach includes

  • enrichment
  • intensified learning opportunities
  • customization, and
  • content-focused learning.

All Domestic Flagship institutions offer “Flagship-level” courses taught by specially selected faculty which provides language training at a level well beyond that offered in regular language programs.  Some Domestic institutions also have summer language schools. For example, Bryn Mawr College offers a summer training program with closely articulated intensive course offerings at the elementary, intermediate, and upper intermediate levels, as well as dedicated academic training support for some Flagship students in the summer just prior to their participation in the Overseas Flagship Program in Kazakhstan.
