UW-Madison awarded 3 Flagship Language Initiatives

The University of Wisconsin-Madison was recently awarded three summer language programs: SAFLI (South Asian Flagship Languages Initiative), IFLI (Indonesian Flagship Language Initiative), and TURFLI (Turkish Flagship Language Initiative). These programs will bring approximately 40 students to UW-Madison this summer for intensive language study of Hindi, Urdu, Indonesian, and Turkish at the Wisconsin Intensive Summer Language Institutes. Students will then continue their studies overseas in India (SAFLI), Indonesia (IFLI), or Azerbaijan (TURFLI) during the fall semester. Beginner language students typically meet the ILR 1+/2 level of proficiency (Intermediate High to Advanced Low) by the end of their program. These three programs are special initiatives of the Boren Awards for international study and will be hosted by UW-Madison until 2023!
