Summer Language Abroad Program Highlighted by the College of Arts & Letters

Author: Allegra Wallingford

In a recent article published on the website of the College of Arts & Letters, author Grace Guibert details the experiences of several students who had the opportunity to participate in SLA. 

One student was able to go to Ireland to work on her Irish language skills, and says of her experience: "The experience has helped me narrow my search of what I want to focus my studies on in my next two years at Notre Dame... The Irish culture is a huge part of my heritage, and it has now become a huge part of my life.”

"Through intensive language coursework and daily interaction with native speakers, the SLA experience allows students to rapidly enhance their command of a foreign language—be it Arabic, Cantonese, Chinese, French, German, Irish, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, or Swahili."
