LIVE LIKE A LOCAL IN RUSSIA
Learn About Russia
World Explorers creates a safe and fun environment for you to teach English in Russia. CHI provides you with basic tutoring materials for casual English conversation lessons. Most Russians learn English in school and are eager for the opportunity to practice. That’s where you come in. You will be welcomed into your host family’s home and become a part of their lives, and they will become your friends for life. Food is a major part of Russian culture, and mealtimes prove to be a great time for getting the whole family to engage English conversation.
Your number one priority is to spend quality time with your Russian hosts and to practice English with them for 15 hours per week. Your goal will be to help your hosts gain confidence speaking English. Ideally you will also want to practice speaking Russian with your hosts in return.
We understand that keeping the World Explorers cost down is as important as the life-changing experience you will enjoy. Hence, we prepared a cost calculator which shows the cost of the program (excluding airfare) compared to the cost of a standard vacation. The prices are calculated according to the destination chosen, the arrival and departure dates, and the length of your stay.
The length of your stay is an especially important factor: the longer you stay abroad, the cheaper the cost per day becomes.
CHI is a non-profit organization, but we still have fixed costs that are necessary for running the program. Our overseas partners are actually for-profit, and we must take that into consideration as well. Our partners do the work to find and screen excellent host families that match your interests and needs!
