ERLP Students Hiking in the Pamirs

“This program has been a great experience for me; I have really enjoyed living in Tajikistan. I feel that I have accomplished what I set out to do in my language learning. A lot of what made this time special was the friendships I formed with my host family, Tajik friends, international people and, of course, my classmates. The opportunity to travel around Tajikistan was a beautiful and unforgettable experience as well!”
