WISLI has plans to return to in-person instruction in Summer 2022.  Application information coming this Fall!

Each summer, undergraduates, graduate students, professionals, and other non-traditional students study a language at the Wisconsin Intensive Summer Languages Institutes (WISLI). WISLI is host to five summer language institutes which offer high-quality courses in 30 less commonly taught languages (LTCLs), and a self-directed multilanguage seminar. These domestic courses are intensive, condensing an entire year of language study into 8 weeks.


“The instructor has been incredibly supportive and has made effort to ensure the course is meeting my learning process and desired outcomes.”

“Honestly one of the best instructors I have had. She is very engaging in class and wants to make sure we all participate. She brings in a mix of language learning methods so class is always fun.”
