The Monterey Institute of International Studies’ Summer Intensive Language Program (SILP) celebrated a very successful summer in 2011, welcoming 152 students to study one of six languages, a 30 percent increase from last year. This year also saw the return of the Japanese program after a six-year hiatus. “This was a great year, with wonderful students and exceptional faculty from 15 countries,” says SILP program director Alicia Brent.

The program culminated with a celebration and talent show held last week, at which students showed off their language and cultural skills through song, dance and various skits. All summer long the students were encouraged to participate in a variety of language-specific activities such as cooking Russian delicacies, singing karaoke in Chinese, making sushi and learning how to shop in a typical Latin American food market.
