Intensive Summer Language Workshops Available at UT
Posted: February 21, 2011
The 2011 Summer Language Institute, coordinated through the Texas Language Center in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas at Austin, is offering students an exciting new opportunity in intensive language learning: the possibility of fulfilling the two-year foreign language requirement in just three months — from June 1 to August 15. Students can receive the first two years of credit in their choice of four languages: Czech, Modern Greek, Portuguese, or Vietnamese. They may also choose to receive one year of credit in second-year Russian.
This intensive "jumpstart" provides a solid and thorough foundation in the language basics, allowing future specialists to enroll in advanced classes that delve even deeper into the language and culture, future CEOs to tackle a non-linguistic degree from a global perspective, or speed demons who want to clear up their schedules to get out into the world that much faster and more cheaply. At $3700, plus UT tuition, this is one of the least costly summer language programs available nationally. And everything is included: room, board, excursions, extracurricular activities, and tutoring.
