Explore Russian culture by spending a year in a host family and studying in a Russian school. You will be impressed by the diversity you will find within this country.
We look forward to welcoming participants from all countries to Russia for this school program with a host family. Exchange students are hosted in different areas of European part of Russia. Every chapter has its own volunteer network and plan of activities. Every mandatory and optional activity could be organized differently from town to town, from year to year. AFS students hosted in Russia are mostly placed in smaller towns as they are safer and offer a chance for the best possible experience. Moreover, they will be in a frequent contact with AFS volunteers,who are mostly school teachers.
Language Level needed upon arrival: Basic English
A good basic knowledge of English is highly recommended, but it is expected from the participants to be dedicated to learn Russian.
