The courses and immersive learning opportunities offered for the 2013 winter (or “J-term”) are a wonderful reflection of the vibrant academic environment created by the unique Monterey Institute community.
The program has been a huge success, to the joy of its founders and current staff, who follow with great interest the careers of participants, many of whom secure long-term employment at the international organizations to which they are assigned.
In the fall semester of 2012, students taught 18 languages in many more classes to accommodate different fluency levels and opened their classrooms to the whole Monterey community—for free!
