Mini-American Summer School Published: September 16, 2015



The Mini American Summer School is in the planning stages for its 13th summer season from Monday, June 20th, 2016 through Friday, July 1st, 2016, in Koltsovo, Siberia/ Russia, a suburb of the capital of Siberia, Novosibirsk.

The summer school for Russian students going into grades two through eleven is designed to enhance their English language interactive skills is staffed by native English speaking educators and other professionals who volunteer their time for the two weeks of summer school.

The Mini American Summer School staff members pay for their airfare & Visa to and from Russia with their room, board, and cultural excursions during the summer school provided by the local summer school sponsors. The local summer school sponsors pay a portion of an optional post summer school excursion to Moscow & St. Petersburg or The Alti Mountains from July 4th to July 11th, 2016.


The typical summer school day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 2:00 pm. The mornings are devoted to English interactive classes from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm with afternoon organized activities from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm after a thirty-minute lunch.

American Team members teach classes each morning and organize afternoon group English activities for the students three days each week with the Russian support teachers. For the afternoon activities, the students participate in American baseball, bingo, dance, board games, soccer, volleyball, and additional individualized work on their English speaking skill. The students and Russian teaching assistants just enjoy interacting with the American team.


The local summer school sponsors provide room and board. The American team will stay in the local hotel nearby. The hotel rooms accommodate in most cases two volunteers with their own bathroom facilities and a common shower in a Spa area. Our Russian hosts provide the teaching team’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner with organized dinner outings in the city and at local families homes scheduled by the Russian director.
