SLI Students

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.
