UW-Madison was recently awarded three summer language programs! These programs are special initiatives of the Boren Awards for International Study and will be hosted by UW-Madison until 2023.
As previously announced, one of the Flagship Language Initiatives will be TURFLI (Turkish Flagship Language Initiative). This program will bring students to UW-Madison this summer for intensive language study Turkish at WISLI (the Wisconsin Intensive Summer Language Institutes) for 8-weeks during the summer of 2020. Students who study Turkish will then continue their studies Azerbaijan during the fall semester of 2020.
Additionally, SAFLI (South Asian Flagship Languages Initiative) and IFLI (Indonesian Flagship Language Initiative) will be hosted by UW-Madison. SAFLI and IFLI allow students to study Hindi, Urdu, or Indonesian, intensively at WISLI (the Wisconsin Intensive Summer Language Institutes) this summer. Following the UW-Madison summer courses students will then continue their studies overseas in India (SAFLI) or Indonesia (IFLI) in the fall semester.
Beginner language students typically meet the ILR 1+/2 level of proficiency (Intermediate Hight to Advanced Low) by the end of their program.
