Basic Language Training (BLT)

The Basic Language Training Program is a series of non-credit language courses that are offered during both the fall and spring semesters and each class is taught by a native speaker. The student instructors teach the basics of their language and also explore the culture and history of their home country with their students. The classes occur over the course of eight weeks and meet twice per week for an hour each session for a total of 16 classes.

The languages offered each semester vary and there is an enrollment fee of $35 per person for each 8 week course. Each class must have at least 5 students registered for the class to happen. If a class is canceled due to low participation, you will receive a refund. There is no limit to how many classes each student can register.

Refund Policy: Full refund of registration fee will be given when a request for a refund has been received within 24 hours after the first class meeting. These requests should be made during office hours (8 a.m.-5 p.m.) at the International Student & Scholar Services office.
