Summer Study

Summer 2023 Intensive Language Courses

We offer intensive Asian language courses in select Asian languages that let you earn a year's worth of language credit (15 credits) in nine weeks.

In Summer 2023, the department intends to offer all intensive language courses in-person only. (No intensive language courses will be offered fully remote / online / over Zoom.)

Non-UW students (including high school students) can register and take our summer courses. Please learn about the summer quarter application process and registration here. Each course covers roughly the same material that we offer in our equivalent nine month courses that span the entire academic year.  For Summer registration and fee information, please visit this page.

*Please note these are preliminary schedules subject to change without notice. 

When it is available, please see the Summer 2023 Time Schedule for the most up-to-date and current information.

Special Instructions for those who wish to study Chinese in the Summer:

  1. You are required to fill out our online Chinese Language Evaluation Questionnaire. You need to be a registered Summer Quarter student in order to do this.
  2. After this process, one of our instructors will send you an add code via email that you will use to register for the class.
  3. Register for the appropriate Chinese language course using the online registration system as specified by the Summer Quarter. It is important that you register as soon as possible, since classes fill up quickly and add codes can be invalidated after a set period of time.
