Applications for Summer 2021 are now open for
summer session June 14 – August 14, 2021


Each year, we look forward to the on-campus learning environment in summer. This summer, we are committed to providing an excellent online learning experience in our applied linguistics courses. We have experience in delivering a number of advanced online courses and are now extending that to all of our summer classes.

A big part of our regular summer program is multiple opportunities to interact with each other outside the classroom – the community of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and field-personnel. It’s a great time to have fun together, worship together in chapels and ask questions about living and serving in different locations around the world. This summer, in our online-only delivery, we will be providing opportunities for these kinds of interactions! Although we are not meeting on campus, we encourage you to join us for a summer of linguistic learning and community.

Our summer program is a natural academic entry point

Our 9 week summer linguistic training is a custom-designed, intensive and fun-filled program designed to properly launch you into one of several Bachelor’s Degrees, Master’s Degrees, or one of our 8 Training Tracks, by helping you complete your pre-requisite courses. Our summer program courses are also listed in the academic calendars of a number of schools for their students to complete their linguistics electives.

Summer is also a great opportunity to test the waters of linguistics, literacy, Bible translation, Scripture Use, and studies in language and culture. Come for 9 weeks and then make your choice from there.

Learn from field experienced faculty

Most CanIL staff have first-hand experience working overseas. Our instructors and faculty have extensive experience in linguistic analysis, literacy, Bible translation, Scripture engagement, linguistic software development and language survey from a variety of locations and minority languages around the world. Many of our faculty are still actively involved in field projects. If you have questions about working and living in a global context, our summer program provides an excellent opportunity to find answers to those questions.
