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 (LCTLs), and a self-directed multilanguage seminar. These domestic courses are intensive, condensing an entire year of language study into 8 weeks.

An overview of the Summer 2021 programs are available at this link: WISLI 2021 Overview.
