Sacred Hearts Academy student  Travels to Russia

Sacred Hearts Academy senior Zoe Sprott spent seven weeks over the summer learning the Russian language in Kirov Russia.   

Zoe was awarded a merit-based scholarship by the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y), in partnership with the U.S. Department of State, to study language and culture through immersion in a host country. 

Sprott, one of fifteen students from the United States, lived in a dormitory among Russian peers for three weeks and spent the rest of the summer living with a host family.  For five hours a day, Zoe and her American peers, who entered the country knowing very little of the language, attended classes taught by Russian teachers.  During the last week of their stay, the students traveled from Kirov to Moscow (a thirteen-hour train ride) and toured Russia’s capital city.
