SILMW Newsletter

We are very happy to welcome you to a summer of language learning and cultural experience! SILMW provides a unique opportunity to explore the languages and cultures of the Muslim World while interacting with experts on the region. In addition to classroom instruction, SILMW offers a variety of co-curricular learning activities designed to enhance and enrich the language learning process, provide additional channels for language contact, and expose students to the traditions of the communities of the Muslim World.

For the fourth year in a row, SILMW is also holding the Summer Intensive Arabic Program for High School Students. The program runs concurrently during the first two weeks of our Institute. This year, it was awarded a generous grant from the Qatar Foundation International which allowed us to welcome more students from across the United States and to provide them with financial assistance.

Housing

Each student is responsible for securing his/her own housing during SILMW. For your convenience, we have listed several links that you may find helpful in making your housing selection. In the past, the housing cost about $1,000-$1,500 for 60 days in summer. This is just an estimate and the actual cost might be a little bit higher or lower.
