The 2018 IALC Summer Institute “Think Globally, Act Locally” is a unique language immersion program that takes learning out of the classroom and into the real world. For three weeks, participants sharpen their language skills in an innovative learning model combining intensive language classes in the mornings with topical and exciting excursions and field trips in the afternoons and evenings. This model reinforces learning with hands-on experience while participants enjoy the unique perks of living in one of the world’s most dynamic and fascinating capital cities, New York.

*Registration for participants who require on-campus housing is nearly at capacity, but it's not too late to join the Summer Institute! Participants who are based in the New York metro area and do not need housing can still join the program. Contact the IALC for program rates and application deadlines for "day-only" tuition or download the brochure below (check pp. 11 for details about tuition fees).
