The Summer Language Institute brings together a wide range of highly motivated language learners each summer.
- Visiting college students and graduate students who want to use the summer to make quick progress in their language learning or study a language not offered at their home schools.
- Scholars and professionals looking to add a new language to their skills or augment existing language abilities to take the next step in their careers.
- Talented high school students getting a head start on language study and experience the unique scholarly environment at the University of Chicago.
- And many current UChicago students also stay for the summer to add a new language to their portfolios and make faster progress towards their degrees, as well as their research and career goals.
