The University of Wisconsin-Madison is an international leader in foreign languages, offering instruction in more than 80 modern and ancient languages, from Akan-Twi to Zulu. The campus also houses 11 area-studies centers, the National Council of Less Commonly Taught Languages and the National African Language Resource Center.
Students can put those language courses to the test with a study-abroad experience; they are available on every continent of the world except Antarctica.
This summer, students from across the United States will come to Madison for eight weeks of intensive study of the languages of the Baltic countries: Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian.
