Arabic Summer Institute

The Arabic Language Summer Institute implements an innovative language curriculum that focuses on real communication skills. Our language and content-based courses create a rich learning environment that simulates immersion while on campus. Students effectively live in an Arabic-speaking environment during their time at Maryland, with approximately seven hours a day of structured language-learning experiences. Students also gain language exposure with individual and small group language partner hours with high level Arabic speakers.

The average student attending will have made a serious, long-term commitment to learning Arabic, will be prepared to study intensively for nine weeks, and be performing well academically at his or her home institution.
