Content Section 1

All students are required to attend a minimum of 5 points per 4-week session. This will contribute to 1% of your overall grade. After you have completed the minimum 5-points, you can earn up to 5% of extra credit by attending additional activities (each point will contribute 1 point of extra credit).

Generally, the weekly activities are organized as follows:

- Mondays: cultural presentations

- Tuesdays: conversation tables

- Wednesdays: movie screenings

- Thursdays: cooking classes

- Fridays: miscellaneous workshops, field trips, picnics, or other activities.

Conversation tables are listed individually for each language in the second table.

All students are required to attend the minimum of 5 (five) of the co-currucular activities per SILMW course (i.e. per 4-week period). Attending each activity will contribute 1% to your cumulative course grade. You may earn up to 5% extra-credit for any SILMW course by attending up to 5 (five) additional co-curricular activities. We strongly encourage our students to attend all co-curricular events listed in the SILMW calendar to receive additional target language input and practice and learn about the culture and history of the peoples who speak the language.

Below is a list of all activities held at SILMW 2017. Some of these activities count as co-curricular activities that contribute to grade and extra credit. These activities have been marked as "1 Point". Other activities do not contribute to the course grade, but are mandatory. Lastly, we have social activities that we hope you will attend for cultural experience, good food and getting to know the others involved in the program. These social activities are neither mandatory nor do they contribute to your course grade, but you are strongly encouraged to attend and hope they will be very enjoyable! For your convenience, the SILMW activities are displayed in a "Calendar View", and a "List View".
