2020 APTLI Courses

All courses run for 8 weeks, and provide a minimum of 180 in-class contact hours. Upon completion of the program, students wishing to transfer language credits to their home institution may request a transcript from UW-Madison showing their grades and academic credits, which should then be submitted to the appropriate office at the student’s home institution.

The following are model course descriptions and syllabi, and are intended to give a general idea of the different levels. Each summer the specific course content will be modified based on the instructor’s assessment of student ability and pre-program placement results.
