LEARN in the classroom, at meals, and during other weeknight and weekend activities.
The Arabic, Persian, and Turkish Language Immersion Institute (APTLII)* is an eight-week intensive summer language immersion program for undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals. Outside of the classroom, students commit to using their target language at all times - in their shared living space on campus, at meals, and at co-curricular activities that combine to create a language immersion experience.
Courses are offered at levels ranging from Beginner to Advanced (depending on sufficient enrollment), and provide two semesters of academic credit. Instruction is given in small groups taught by native speakers and experienced language teachers. The classes are intensive, involving a minimum of 4.5 hours contact hours Mondays through Fridays, plus extra hours for homework. APTLII meets the requirements for Title VI Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships.
$6,500 covers tuition, room, board, and fees
