CLI 2022 Updates

We are currently in the final planning stages for CLI 2022! We will offer intensive summer language training, with programs spanning from late May to mid-August, in 14 less commonly taught languages. We look to welcome CLI faculty and students back to ASU's Tempe campus and to send CLI students to 6 of our 9 study-abroad locations. As our planning progresses, we will continue to update this page. Please join our CLI 2022 update list to be notified of our program decisions!

For the past two years, CLI has offered nearly all of our language programs online to ensure that our students and faculty from around the world could work together safely. Over 300 students took part in these online courses, which featured skilled and experienced faculty, small class sizes, and individualized instruction. Many of these students told us that they hoped CLI will continue to offer online options for our intensive summer language programs. As we plan for CLI 2022, we do so with this in mind.

CLI 2022 will held in person on ASU's Tempe campus and in our overseas locations, we will operate in a manner consistent with ASU's coronavirus policies. Current ASU policy on face coverings, updated on March 11, does not mandate their use in most indoor spaces.

As per ASU policy, CLI strongly recommends that all participants taking part in its programs on ASU's Tempe campus be vaccinated against Covid-19. For study-abroad programs, we work with some providers who require vaccinations. Each of our in-person programs now has a dedicated Covid-19 tab; please review the information for the program you are interested in.

Thanks to ASU institutional support, CLI does not charge tuition (in-state or out-of-state) for its credit-bearing courses. Instead, we charge a flat administrative fee of $1,500 for all of our languages. Please note that additional fees apply for our study-abroad programs. For information on CLI 2022 program dates and estimated costs, please visit the individual language pages. Please note that we are working to keep these updated with the most accurate information we have available.

UPDATE: The application deadline for most CLI programs has been extended to April 15! Apply today! The deadline for Russian programs in Kyrgyzstan and Russia has not been extended.
