This summer is the perfect time to study an Asian language!
The University of California's Education Abroad Program offers an outstanding array of summer and academic year language study programs. The UCLA Asia Institute and its member centers have sent students to programs in Beijing, Yokohama, Seoul, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Manila, and elsewhere and returnees routinely rave about the quality of the instruction and the richness of the experience.
Perhaps you'd like to pursue language study in a place EAP doesn't yet have programs (there aren't many!). If so, the Asia Institute website is for you. It offers a comprehensive catalog of intensive summer language programs and academic year programs. Some of the languages covered by these programs include Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Tibetan, Tagalog, Khmer, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Thai, and Hindi. Many programs offer financial support, but you may also be eligible for other fellowships and you should take a look at our catalog of fellowships (details are available for more than 200 awards).
