The University of Chicago’s Summer Language Institute will be offering Georgian and Yiddish in Summer 2015, as well as two new courses: Reading Russian for Research Purposes and Reading Polish for Research Purposes. We hope that these courses may be of interest to students around the country who are studying the languages and cultures of Central and Eastern Europe and Russia. Both the Georgian and Yiddish courses meet the FLAS contact hour requirement, and the University of Chicago accepts the FLAS tuition grant as meeting the full tuition cost of the courses.
