University of Pittsburgh offers intensive summer languange courses

The University of Pittsburgh’s Slavic, East European, and Near Eastern Summer Language Institute has offered intensive summer language courses for over 25 years.  With a focus on critical and less commonly taught languages, Pitt’s SLI provides courses in up to 14 languages annually—Arabic, Bosnian /Croatian/ Serbian, Bulgarian, Czech, Estonian, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Persian (Farsi), Polish, Russian, Slovak, Turkish, and Ukrainian.  Whether students choose to study on Pitt’s campus or on one of the SLI’s many abroad programs, they can expect to cover approximately one academic year’s worth of course work during a single summer. 

Language instruction at the SLI emphasizes practical proficiency in the target language as well as cultural competence.  In addition to intensive grammar, reading, listening, and, of course, speaking practice, students will attend lectures, films, cooking classes, ethnic picnics, and, for those who go abroad, extensive excursion programs.   
With our programs, you can discover the world!  Apply now!
