  • Mode of Instruction

    Due to the complexity of the evolving COVID-19 Pandemic, SIPI has not yet set a mode of instruction for Summer 2021. This decision will be made in coordination with the other WISLI institutes, university recommendations, and CDC guidelines. We would also like to take into account the preferences of our students. Please answer the following instruction related questions to help with our decision.
  • Please note that "online" may be either synchronous(live with interaction between instructors and students) or asynchronous(pre-recorded or pre-assigned activities that you can do when it fits into your weekly schedule), but will likely include at least some synchronous sessions due to the nature of language learning.
  • This is optional. Due to the many possibilities for mode of instruction, you may provide any additional information or clarification about your preferred mode of instruction.
