The Critical Languages Institute

CLI is a summer language institute at Arizona State University, specializing in less commonly taught languages.

The Institute is known for its wide array of study-abroad programs and its commitment to preparing students from day one to function effectively overseas.

The Institute offers two types of program: courses that start on the ASU campus then (optionally) move overseas; and courses that take place entirely overseas.

It can be tricky to sort through the options, so please do not hesitate to contact us for help choosing and applying for any of the CLI programs, listed below.
