Save the date for STARTALK KLCA 2021 virtual program!

We missed you all in summer 2020 and hope that you found other ways to learn about Korean language and culture from the safety of your home. We have begun planning for STARTALK KLCA 2021 which will be held virtually, with synchronous instruction.  As our plans become clearer, we will communicate them to you (join our email list – see below). For now, we hope you will save these dates for our summer 2021 program: June 14 – July 16, with no classes June 30 – July 6.

Please contact outreach@languageinstitute.wisc.edu with any questions.
