What is SEASSI?
SEASSI is an eight-week intensive language training program for undergraduates,
graduate students and professionals. It has been held since 1983 and
hosted by UW-Madison in 1994-1995 and then since 2000. Instruction
for academic credit in eight languages
at the 1st, 2nd, and
3rd year levels.
Classes may be cancelled due to low enrollment. Please be sure to apply to SEASSI as early as possible.

Each language course is equivalent to two semesters of study, with
full academic year credit. Instruction is given in small individualized
groups taught by a team consisting of a coordinator (usually a linguist
specializing in Southeast Asian language pedagogy) and teachers who
are native speakers of that language. Instruction is intensive. Classes are held from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm, Mondays through Fridays. Most students find that they spend an additional three to four hours per day on homework.
SEASSI is an integral part of a nationwide network of language teaching
faculty from the institutions that are members of the SEASSI Consortium Cornell
University, Michigan State University, Northern Illinois University, Ohio
of California-Berkeley, University
of California-Los Angeles, University
of Hawaii-Manoa, University
of Michigan, University
of Washington, and University
of Wisconsin-Madison.. Representatives from these institutions meet annually
to discuss SEASSI, and all major decisions regarding the institute must
be approved by the SEASSI Board.
