Do you want to learn the Lao language, Lao history, and Lao culture? What better way to do it than to spend your summer fully immersed in Lao society in Laos!
SAIL students will be participating in a Lao language program tailored specifically to the group’s needs at one of the country’s most acclaimed,
and popular, language institutions – the Lao‐American College (http://www.lac.edu.la/) located in Vientiane, Laos. Intensive courses combined with individual language tutorials, diversified field trips, access to local University students, modern facilities, and an experienced on‐site staff, make Lao‐ American College an incredible place to study Lao and learn cross‐ cultural skills. SAIL participants spend three to four hours a day in classroom training and can pair up with Lao students to further improve their speaking and listening comprehension. Classroom time is split between language lessons and a newly updated, comprehensive Lao History and Culture course taught by foreign and local experts.
