The Southeast Asian Studies Summer Institute (SEASSI) at the University of Wisconsin is now accepting applications for their 2019 program. This is an eight-week intensive language training program for undergraduates, graduate students and professionals. The program offers instruction on 9 different Southeast Asian languages, which are Burmese, Filipino, Hmong, Indonesian, Javanese, Khmer, Lao, Thai, and Vietnamese. 

Each language course is equivalent to two semesters of study, with full academic year credit. Instruction is given in small individualized groups taught by a team consisting of a coordinator (usually a linguist specializing in Southeast Asian language pedagogy) and teachers who are native speakers of that language. Instruction is intensive. Classes are held from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm, Mondays through Fridays. Most students find that they spend an additional three to four hours per day on homework.

SEASSI also offers a limited number of spots for students to participate in SEASSI classes via distance. For more information, please click here
