Seattle Language and Culture Institute


The FIUTS Seattle Language and Culture Institute welcomes middle and high school students from the U.S. and around the world to Seattle for two weeks of cross-cultural exchange and international collaboration.

English language students spend each morning in a class consistent with their English proficiency level. Global Leadership course participants spend each morning in interactive workshops focused on cultural competency and leadership development. In the afternoons, FIUTS staff lead the whole group on guided trips to locations around the Seattle area for fun and educational excursions.

Students who live in the Seattle area (or wish to arrange their own local housing) can participate in the day program, which begins at 9:00 AM and ends at 5:00 PM each weekday.

Students who are traveling to the Seattle area to participate in the SLCI will stay in University of Washington residence halls for the duration of the program.
