KU Summer African Languages Institute


The Kansas African Studies Center and the Department of African and African-American Studies at the University of Kansas are the sponsors of a Summer African Language Institute (SALI) on the Lawrence campus from June 2 - July 24, 2020. The institute will offer expert instruction in beginning and intermediate Kiswahili

In eight weeks, experience the equivalent of one year of university-level language instruction. Enhance your global awareness through experiential learning. Empower yourself to build your future as a socially responsible citizen. 

The environment of the institute will foster a close community of Kiswahili language learners over the course of both summer sessions. All language courses will be supplemented with a variety of activities including guest lectures, field trips, films, language tables, and cultural immersion. We invite you to join us for a rigorous yet fun summer of learning without boundaries!
