Persian Summer Institute
The Persian Language Summer Institute implements an innovative language curriculum, creating a rich learning environment that simulates immersion while on campus. Students effectively live in a Persian-speaking environment during their time at Maryland, with approximately seven hours a day of structured language-learning experiences. Students also gain language exposure through language partner hours with an Advanced Persian speaker.
The average student attending will have made a serious, long-term commitment to learning Persian, be prepared to study intensively for about nine weeks, and be performing well academically at his or her home institution.
Courses are part of the University’s Summer Term, follow University policies and procedures, and are subject to change. The University reserves the right to cancel courses due to insufficient enrollment or for other reasons it deems necessary.
