- Language Opportunities for Children
Azbuka 1: Exploratory Russian
For children grades 2nd-6th
The Bridges program is excited to announce the continuation of their Azbuka program for the Fall 2013 Semester. The Class is free and open to all children in grades 2-6. The class will be offered on Fridays from 5:00-6:00 pm at the IU International Programs building (201 N. Indiana Ave. Bloomington, IN 47401). The program aims to instruct children with little or no background in Russian about the language and culture of Russia through interactive lessons involving games, songs, stories, crafts, and much more. For more information please contact Susan Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website.
For Fall 2014, Polish preschool will be meeting on Saturdays 11:30pm -2:00pm at the Polish Studies Center (1217 E. Atwater Ave). If you are interested, please contact Karolina Serafin at email@example.com.
The mission of the preschool is “to help Polish speaking children find classmates, develop friendships with other children of Polish origins, to provide fun, educational activities while learning to speak, write, read, and sing in Polish.”
Rosinka Program in Russian Language and Culture - English flyer | Russian flyer
Since its establishment in 2009, the Rosinka Program in Russian Language and Culture has provided more than 50 Bloomington-area children with weekly instruction in Russian language and culture. In 2013-14, Rosinka offers classes for children of elementary school age (5-11) who are being raised in Russian-speaking households (so-called heritage speakers).
Children should be able to function in a classroom where all or most communication and instruction takes place in Russian. Emphasis is placed on development of literacy skills, cultivating a favorable attitude towards the use of Russian, appreciating the diverse cultural heritage of the Russophone world, and effective oral communication.
In Spring Semester 2014, Rosinka will take place at Campus View Apartments (800 North Union Street, Bloomington) in room 120, 121, and 122 on Fridays, 5:00-6:00. Classes will begin on Friday, January 24 and continue through Friday, April 25.
Rosinka is sponsored by the IU Russian and East European Institute and the IU RPS Area Coordinator’s Office. A modest fee of $50 per family (not child) will be charged to cover the cost of materials and other operating expenses.
To learn more about Rosinka and sign up children, contact Mark Trotter at 812-856-5247 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
