Call for Applications: Virtual Summer Institute for Languages of the Muslim World, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (15 Jun-8 Aug | Virtual)

May 15, 2020

The Summer Institute for Languages of the Muslim World (SILMW) hosted at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will be held virtually this year. The classes and all program activities will take place online. The program will run from June 15 to August 8, 2020. 

The SILMWis an annual intensive language program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The program invite students to join the 9% of Americans who choose the unique and meaningful experience of learning a Less Commonly Taught Language (LCTL).  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 can assist students in securing international positions in governmental, development, and academic sectors.    

This summer SILMW will take place from June 15 to August 8, 2020, and will be offering Arabic, Persian, Swahili, Turkish, and Wolof.  The program is 8 weeks and is divided into two, 4-week semesters. The institute will be offered in an online format, consisting of activities such as language practice, conversation tables, movie nights, and more!  

“When you complete the program, not only will you be able to hold a conversation in a new language and have earned up to 10 credits, you will have had fun!”
