Why Study Slavic and East European Languages?

Why Study Slavic and East European Languages?
~ brought to you by the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages ~
This page is a work in progress; please contribute your suggestions and ideas.

Its purpose is to provide information for current and potential students of these languages, and information (plus interesting facts and factoids) that instructors of these languages may use ito describe and advertise their courses.

Information on individual languages:

There are of course other languages besides these now or formerly spoken in Central and Eastern Europe, in Central Asia, and in other parts of the Russian Federation, but these are the ones most frequently taught in North America. If you or your institution teach others that you would like to see listed here, let us know.

This page is a work in progress. Some information and suggestions provided courtesy of and thanks to Petia Alexieva and Professors Henry R. Cooper, Jr., Craig Cravens, Masako Fidler, Victor Friedman, Marc Greenberg, Angelina Ilieva, Christina Kramer, Robert Mathiesen, Cynthia Vakareliyska, Aida Vidan, Bronislava Volkov, and Patricia Zody; thanks to the list of College enrollments on the web site of the Committee on College and Pre-College Russian, maintained by Professor John Schillinger at American University.
