SLI is currently making plans for a mostly in-person institute in all of our languages in Pittsburgh, enhanced by a small number of online and hybrid courses in selected languages and levels. Format options are given on our program pages, but, as formats may be adjusted to respond to travel circumstances and student demand, applicants are also welcome to reach out to us with questions or to discuss whether their language and level is under consideration for online participation.

SLI abroad programs are now being planned in Czech Republic, Montenegro, Poland, and Slovakia for summer 2022! Applications are open for our signature Pitt+abroad programs at each of these destinations. Students with prior language study may be eligible for abroad-only programs in these four countries. Our ability to run each of these programs in the summer will depend on the conditions around COVID mitigation such as travel restrictions and safety recommendations as summer draws closer. Our popular Pitt+Russia program is planned to resume in summer of 2023 due to the uncertainty around visa processing and COVID travel restrictions to Russia at this time.

In the summer of 2021, SLI hosted a record-breaking cohort of language learners in three instructional formats. SLI 2021 was our most successful and inspiring intensive language and cultural immersion program to date. Through their passion, diligence, and love of language, our dedicated faculty and talented students have proven their ability to thrive in any classroom circumstance over the last two summers. We are excited to explore our languages with the SLI class of 2022 via the most effective teaching techniques adapted to the in-person, online, and abroad environments.
