Critical Languages Institute


About CLI

Arizona State University's Critical Languages Institute is a national training institute for less commonly taught languages, offering novice-level courses that start on the ASU campus then (optionally) move overseas and intermediate and advanced courses that take place entirely overseas.

CLI instruction in all locations is practically focused and proficiency-based. Students leave the program with the language and cultural skills they need to function effectively in the countries they are studying.

Understanding that achieving high levels of proficiency requires extended study abroad, CLI provides academic advising and grant monitoring services. Together, these have made ASU a leading producer of Boren and Fulbright scholars.
