3) LOOKING TO BRUSH UP ON YOUR RUSSIAN? — The Institute of Strategic Languages and Cultures, also known as Russian Language Ministries, is offering 2 or 3 week intensive Russian language courses during summer 2009 in Kiev, Ukraine. Two different courses will be offered, including Correct Grammar in Spoken Russian, a course devoted to giving the student the skills to speak with grammatical accuracy, and Bible and Ministry Related Terminology, a course that will cover ministry related vocabulary and phrases in discipleship situations. A third course covering conventional Russian is also possible, depending on the needs of the students attending. This program is designed for individuals who desire to take their Russian to the next level with several different tracks of study, depending on the levels of proficiency. Each course will meet for 3 hours a day and the program will begin around the last week of July. If you are interested in more information you may contact ISLC at
