Indiana University’s Summer Language Workshop is proud to host the 2016 Baltic Studies Summer Institute (BALSSI), offering intensive beginning Estonian, Latvian, and Lithuanian language courses. Courses will be held from June 6-July 29, 2016 on the Bloomington campus.
The Workshop has been offering intensive language training at the Bloomington campus of Indiana University since 1950. Drawing on the resources of Indiana University’s language and area studies specialists and employing highly qualified and experienced faculty from other universities in the US and abroad, the Summer Language Workshop has developed and maintained a national program of the highest quality. The Workshop’s curriculum emphasizes communicative classrooms focused on the student and on development of level-appropriate proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, and culture. A full range of cultural and linguistic extracurricular activities complement classroom instruction for every language.
Students complete the equivalent of one year of academic instruction in the program and earn 6-8 credits, which can be transferred to other institutions.
