Scholarly and policy-level interest in the conditions affecting second language gain within the study abroad environment continues to attract the attention of researchers, but relatively little empirical work has been undertaken to date on L-2 gain at the superior level and above. The present study examines the roles of time-on-task, initial levels of proficiency, and program design on the attainment of superior-level proficiency in Russian during study abroad.
