APTLI’S PHILOSOPHY

UW-Madison’s Arabic, Persian, and Turkish Language Institute employs a communicative approach that entails student-centered, performance-based, and context-oriented language teaching.

To meet the program goals of integrating reading, writing, listening, and speaking with communication strategies and cultural skills, instructors and students agree to use the target language exclusively within the classroom. At the end of each level of instruction, students will demonstrate a) greater facility of communication, b) broader understanding of how to engage in the historical and socio-cultural contexts in which the target language is used, and c) expanded individual capabilities in learning how to adapt language skills for life-long learning.
