Russian Flagship & CREECA Launch New Kazakh Tutorial

The Russian Flagship Program, with the support of CREECA is pleased to announce a special opportunity for advanced students of Russian (at the third year of Russia or above) to participate in a yearlong tutorial designed to introduce students to Kazakh language and culture. The non-credit tutorial is intended to provide an informal opportunity for students of Russian who are preparing for overseas study in Kazakhstan.

The tutorial is facilitated by Ainur Ainabekova, a UW-Madison graduate student who is an experienced Kazakh instructor and a native of Almaty, Kazakhstan, where the American Councils/UW-Madison Russian Language and Area Studies Program (RLASP) and the Russian Overseas Flagship Programs are located.

The tutorial is based on online introductory Kazakh language and culture lessons, Сәлем, Қазақстан!, developed for Russian Flagship students by the Russian Flagship Program at UCLA and American Councils. Students who sign up for the tutorial will work on the online lessons independently, then regularly meet with Ainur Ainabekova as a group for conversation, practice, and to have questions answered.
