Intensive Summer Language Program at UW-Madison

We are pleased to announce that the UW-Madison Arabic, Persian, and Turkish Language Immersion Institute (APTLII) is now accepting applications for Summer 2013, which will run from June 15 to August 10. 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 daily Monday through Friday, with a packed schedule of afternoon and evening activities and workshops. The total charge is $7,000 including tuition, housing, and meals. Students are eligible to apply for Summer FLAS fellowships from UW-Madison Global Studies to cover the entire cost of the program (visit flas.wisc.edu for details).
