About Josie

I have studied Russian language for five years. I began studying Russian at Luther College while I was a senior in high school, and then went on to major in Russian at St. Olaf College (Northfield, MN), where I was also an active member in Russian Club and Russian Film Club. In summer 2010, I completed an 8-week intensive immersion-style Russian language program at Beloit College (Beloit, OH). I spent one semester (Fall 2010) studying at Irkutsk State Polytechnic University in Irkutsk, Russia. There, I lived with a host family and took intensive language classes. This spring (2012), I received a highly competitive Critical Language Scholarship through American Councils and the Department of State to study Russian further. Through this scholarship, I spent two months this summer studying at Bashkir State Pedagogical University in Ufa, Russia and living in a host family. The experience greatly improved my fluency in Russian and familiarity with the culture.

I have a great passion for Russian language, and am eager to share my knowledge with others. During my junior and senior years at St. Olaf, I worked in the Russian department grading second and third-year Russian. I also have some experience teaching Russian- earlier this year I worked as a Russian teacher at the Concordia Language Villages February Family Weekend. In addition, I have many Russian learning materials I am willing to share. If you are interested in beginning Russian, or are already studying it, I would love to meet and help you out!
