The Arabic High School Program for 2022 will take place from June 12 to June 25, 2022. The institute will be fully face-to-face this summer unless regulations change.
At SILMW, the learning experience takes place in and beyond the classroom. Students will participate in a wide array of integrated, daily activities while at U of I. The goal of the co-curricular activities is to give students an opportunity to reinforce the language skills they acquire in the classroom and become culturally competent in the target language.
