After one year-break caused by the pandemic, Middlebury College students (USA) finally managed to come to Irkutsk for exchange. The cooperation with Middlebury College lasts for more than 20 years. The American students are interested in Siberian identity, Baikal studies, Russian history and Russian as a Foreign language. More than 170 American students have successfully completed the program which was elaborated for the foreign students to improve their skills in various majors connected with Russian language and cultural features.
We wish students good luck and hope that they will enjoy their stay at ISU.
