University Wisconsin-Madison Arabic, Persian, and Turkish Summer Programs

We are pleased to announce that 2010 program fees will remain at $6,500.00. This includes tuition, fees, room, and board.

Visit the Registration and Payments page to pay the $100.00 application fee with your Visa or MasterCard.

APIP is adding Turkish for 2010!

Students can select either beginning or intermediate Turkish. Please contact the program coordinator for more details. We are able to offer this opportunity thanks to generous support from the Eastern Consortium.


Operating under the principle that language learning occurs best when instruction emphasizes full immersion, UW-Madison's Arabic and Persian Immersion Program employs a communicative approach that entails student-centered, performance-based, and context-oriented language teaching.

To meet the program goals of integrating reading, writing, listening, and speaking with communication strategies and cultural skills, instructors and students sign a contract agreeing to use the target language exclusively within and outside the classroom. At the end of each level of instruction, students will demonstrate a) greater facility of communication; b) broader understanding of how to engage in the historical and socio-cultural contexts in which the target language is used; and c) expanded individual capabilities in learning how to adapt language skills for life-long learning.
