FSLA 2016: Opportunities for Teachers and Students‏

2015-12-08 12:13

Dear Friends of the UNG Federal Service Language Academy,


The University of North Georgia (UNG) will host the sixth summer language academy for high school rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors in June and July 2016. The Federal Service Language Academy (FSLA) is a three-week residential program for students interested in an immersive intensive language experience, fitness, and exploring international-related careers with the federal government. Last year 120 students from over 32 US states and three foreign countries successfully completed FSLA. 


During the two three-week sessions, students will be immersed in intensive language instruction in First-Year Arabic, Chinese, Russian, German, Korean, Portuguese or Second-Year Arabic, Chinese, Russian, German, Korean, and Portuguese from highly qualified teachers, participate in a daily fitness program, receive career counseling from federal agency representatives (possible agencies include the CIA, DEA, FBI, State Department, Homeland Security, the Peace Corps and US Armed Forces), and possibly receive high school credit for successful completion of the academy. We will also offer First-Year Japanese and First-Year Cherokee. 


We are also pleased to announce the addition of FSLA Germany 2016 in Berlin and FSLA France 2016 in Angers, a three-week (July 01-23) language immersion experience. These programs will feature intensive language instruction, cultural excursions, and home stay arrangements with German or French families. This is a Dual Enrollment program with both high school and university German or French credit.  Accepted students must be admitted to UNG. Please see the FSLA website for further details. 


Please forward this information to any high school teachers, counselors, or administrators in your contacts who may be interested in passing this information to their students and/or may be interested in an employment opportunity at the UNG Federal Service Language Academy.
