The Arabic, Persian, and Turkish Language Immersion Institute (APTLII) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is accepting applications for the summer 2015 program. 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 Mondays through Fridays, with a packed schedule of afternoon and evening activities and workshops. APTLII meets the requirements for Title VI Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships.
