Persian Summer Language Institute

The Persian Language Summer Institute implements an innovative language curriculum, creating a rich learning environment that simulates immersion while on campus.

During the program, 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.
