Spend July with more than 200 high school and college students and young professionals from around Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The Summer Language Institute (SLI) is a well-established program at an international Christian liberal arts university in Lithuania. SLI offers academic English classes to learners of all levels, along with a rich program of extracurricular activities. Volunteer teachers and residence life staff come from all over North America and beyond to participate in this high-energy program.
If you are a teacher or an education major, SLI can be a wonderful opportunity to gain international teaching experience in an English-medium setting. A limited number of spaces are available for students doing teaching practica with supervision, as well. SLI teachers serve students through quality language instruction and have many opportunities to engage deeply with them.
Residence Life staff, including Resident Directors, Resident Assistants, and Spiritual Life staff create fun and challenging extracurricular activities for students while maintaining discipline in the dormitories. Res Life staff have many opportunities to build relationships with students while gaining valuable professional experience.
Most students who come to SLI are not believers; one purpose of SLI is to expose students to this Christian university and give them an experience of caring community that is different from anything they have seen before. Come and be part of the incredible community that is the Summer Language Institute!
