The Summer Institute for Languages of the Muslim World is an intensive language institute that takes place over the summer (June 13 - August 6, 2016) on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus. This summer, we will be offering Uzbek, Arabic, Persian, Swahili, Turkish, and Wolof. We invite students to join the 9% of Americans who choose the unique and meaningful experience of learning a Less Commonly Taught Language. We believe that learning these languages will allow students to gain new global perspectives, and set them apart as highly qualified individuals for international work and engagement. Many of these languages have been designated by the US government as critical to U.S. National Security, and can assist students in securing international positions in governmental, development and academic sectors.
Program Registration Deadline: April 30, 2016
Join us, and over the short span of 8 weeks, you can earn up to 10 credits and go from never having heard of a language to holding a conversation in it. For more information, please go to silmw.linguistics.illinois.edu or watch this short video.
