We actively support the goal of competency-based foreign language instruction to provide functional fluency in five skill areas: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and cultural knowledge.

To increase student motivation toward rapid language acquisition, the department supports informal student activities such as the weekly Russkii chai; Russian, Polish, and Ukrainian Clubs for students; Slavic movie nights; informal Russian conversational clubs led by graduate students; Russian Social Hour with guest speakers; annual Ukrainian Pysanka workshop; Maslenitsa celebration; and more!
