The Summer Institute for Languages of the Muslim World (SILMW) is an annual intensive language program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We 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 13 to August 6, 2022, and we will be offering Arabic, Persian, Swahili, Turkish, and Wolof. The program is 8 weeks and is divided into two, 4-week semesters. This is an immersive experience, complete with instruction, cultural activities, opportunities for language practice, conversation tables, cooking classes, 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*, but you will also have had fun!
*Students interested in this program who may want to transfer credits to JHU, should educate themselves on the pre-approval transfer credit process.
