I am writing to tell you about a very unique Albanian language opportunityhere at Arizona State University's Critical Languages Institute and to askyou how I might best communicate information about our program to theAlbanian-speaking community in the US. I am writing from the Arizona State University Critical Languages Institute,where we have the country's largest Albanian language program. Each summerwe offer intensive elementary, intermediate and advanced courses in Albaniantaught by professors from the University of Tirana and the AmericanUniversity in Kosova. Our courses are funded by grants from the AmericanCouncil of Learned Societies and in a deal we make with ASU summer sessions,we offer our classes tuition-free to any students enrolled. For the past two summers we have had a very special course called AdvancedMastery Albanian, which was created for native and near-native speakers. Itfocuses skills like mastering Albanian orthography, translation (bothbetween Albanian and English, but also between variants of Albanian) andcomposition. Unlike our other classes, advanced mastery only meets for 6weeks (from June 16 to July 25) and students earn 6 rather than 8 credits. I am trying very hard to reach out to Albanian students from outside thePhoenix area to tell them about our program. Do you have suggestions of whoI can best contact to alert students of this very special Albanian languageprogram? I would be happy to send you our brochures and a pdf copy of bothbrochures for you to distribute. In the meantime, I have attached acomprehensive announcement at the bottom of this email. You can also findmore information at our website: has information aboutour program in Tirana. Thank you in advance for your help, Ariann Ariann Stern-Gottschalk, PhD Director, Critical Languages Institute The Melikian Center: Russian, Eurasian, & East European Studies at ASU 480-965-7705 In 2008, the Arizona State University Critical Languages Institute (CLI)will offer eight-week, eight-credit intensive language courses inelementary, intermediate, and advanced mastery Albanian.
