Announcement: SLI has cancelled its Ukrainian program for summer 2020 in connection with logistical challenged caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Ukrainian will be back for SLI 2021.
SLI's programs are moving online for the summer 2020! Learn more about our plans for "Virtual SLI" here: https://www.sli.pitt.edu/node/140.
1st-year Ukrainian classes taught at the SLI provide the equivalent of an academic year's worth of study. Classes meet online via video-conference Monday - Friday from 11am to 4:30pm EST. In addition to intensive language classes, students attend Ukrainian films, lectures, and other activities centering on Ukrainian art, food, and culture.
SLI domestic programs include a robust program of cultural activities centering around food, music, art, film, and movement culture of the SLI language regions.
SLI is moving online for summer 2020 and will not be arranging accommodations for participants this year.
