Activities

SILMW activities

Generally, the weekly activities are organized as follows:

Mondays: cultural presentations

Tuesdays: conversation tables

Wednesdays: movie screenings

Thursdays: cooking classes

Conversation tables are listed individually for each language in the second table.

Below is the calendar for SILMW 2022. Generally, the calendar for the SILMW 2022 program is tentative although we don't expect any major changes to the advertised schedule. 

Some of these activities count as co-curricular activities that contribute to grade and extra credit. These activities have been marked as "1 Point". Other activities do not contribute to the course grade, but are mandatory. Lastly, we have social activities that we hope you will attend for cultural experience, good food, and getting to know the others involved in the program. These social activities are neither mandatory nor do they contribute to your course grade, but you are strongly encouraged to attend and hope they will be very enjoyable! For your convenience, the SILMW activities are displayed below.
