The FLIS program consists of more than 100 language and culturally related presentations, workshops and hands-on activities Your students will have many chances throughout the day to use their foreign language skills as well as acquire new ones. The variety and range of presentations is truly impressive, as past participants can personally attest to.

Our welcome address is at 8:30. Regular sessions begin at 9:15 and run concurrently until 3:00. The program (mailed in April) is the ticket to all sessions—participants are welcome to attend any session they like (more than 15 per hour).
