The University of Montana Arabic Studies Program will offer two intensive Arabic language courses for high school students during the Montana Arabic Summer Institute June 17-July 12.

The courses are funded through a STARTALK grant from the National Security Agency to expand and improve the teaching and learning of strategically important foreign languages. Twenty-five students will be recruited and enrolled in two levels: level one for students with no previous knowledge of Arabic and level two for students who have been introduced to the basics of Arabic.

Students will develop and improve their Arabic language skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing – and cultural knowledge in a fun and academic environment. The grant will cover tuition, fees and instruction materials. Upon completion of the courses, students will earn five college credits.
