Top of Page

 
Cultural immersion programs are an intense, exciting, and life-changing way to elevate people’s knowledge of the world. Yes, uprooting oneself and leaping headfirst into a foreign culture may not be the conventional approach to learning, but doing so offers rewards that simply can't be delivered in a classroom back home.

The immersion - while initially might be a complete shock - transforms participants from  apprehensive and fearful travelers into confident and comfortable citizens of the world.

Rossinca Heritage School is excited to announce our first, but so much needed and thought through Cultural Exchange Program, designed to help everybody who is interested in Russian culture and language to get a deeper and broader understanding of Russia’s culture, literature, language and not to be afraid to travel to Russia and Russian speaking countries.
