About Program

You will study Vietnamese online for three weeks in July 2020, followed by an optional three weeks in Vietnam in January 2021. Both the online and January terms are taught by experienced Vietnamese language teachers who will guide, encourage, and facilitate learning through online intensive language practice and field-based settings. SIT will conduct placement tests to identify your language level. For beginning students, the online course focuses on pronunciation, practical vocabulary, and conversational language patterns. Aside from online group sessions, language instructors will work with you individually to develop speaking and listening skills. This online course will prepare students to be both Vietnamese language proficient and culturally ready for an optional three-week January term in Vietnam.

SIT Robert Kantor Memorial Scholarship

Each year one student will be granted $10,000 in scholarship aid to study abroad with a SIT program.
