Summer Language Institute for Spanish Teachers

Southern Oregon University's Summer Language Institute is an innovative graduate program that focuses specifically on the needs of Spanish language teachers. Our unique curriculum is designed to strengthen language proficiency, teaching expertise and cultural understanding.

Master's candidates can earn their MA in Spanish Language Teaching over three summers. We also welcome non-degree-seeking students looking to earn graduate credits for professional development in our Spanish and French SLI programs.

Our Spanish program is typically held on the campus of the Universidad de Guanajuato, SOU’s sister university, allowing our students to immerse themselves in local language and culture through study abroad and convenient, affordable homestays.

Due to the pandemic, our 2021 summer courses will be offered via remote instruction. This means that we can more widely offer an affordable route to starting your master's degree or earning graduate credits, as we have a special reduced tuition rate for our courses. We are also still able to accept applications for students interested in starting the Spanish program or earning graduate credit with us in 2021!

To learn more:
Our featured Zoom Meetup for NECTFL with Spanish program director Dr. Anne Connor will be Saturday, April 24th, from 11:30 AM-12:00 PM Eastern (8:30 AM– 9:00 AM Pacific). Join our April 24 Zoom Meetup via this link, or via Zoom Meeting ID: 85709262272

We are also delighted to meet with NECTFL attendees during conference hours by appointment - please email connora@sou.edu to arrange a time.

For more information and to apply, you may also visit our website - sou.edu/sli - or feel free to contact us via email at sli@sou.edu. You can also explore our program's structure and this summer's courses on our curriculum page.

We look forward to welcoming you - whether virtually in 2021, or when we return to Mexico in 2022!
