Summer Language Institute

The Summer Language Institute (SLI) is academically challenging, fun, and thoroughly rewarding. You will earn 8 academic credit hours and complete the foreign language required for most bachelor’s degrees (some degrees require one or two additional semesters). The Summer Language Institutes are carefully tailored language programs of study in Arabic, Chinese, Korean, or Russian. Activities are engaging, challenging, and fun with emphasis on learning the language through substantial interaction between students and native-speaking faculty and assistants. In addition to classroom instruction, you will enjoy co-curricular activities in the language.  Because of their accelerated and intensive nature, the Summer Institutes are residential programs, and as such, you must live on campus for the duration of the program. SLI students will live in the North Georgia Suites; for more information about the residence halls, visit the residence life page. Students cannot be registered for any other courses and must not have any other commitments outside of the summer language institute. 

Dates: June 21 - JULY 31, 2015

Check-In will be on Sunday June 21 at 10:00a.m.
