Join a group of fellow students for practice speaking Russian. If you're taking a Russian language class this semester, you can get extra credit for attending the conversation group at least 6 times. During Spring 2021, Russian Conversation will be meeting on Tuesdays at 6:30pm. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
