Summer Online Language Courses

Take a full year language this summer through the Less Commonly Taught Languages Program!

We now offer the First-Year sequence (LL 151 and 152 in the schedule of courses) in one to four languages each summer.

All courses are fully online, but they will not be self-paced. Each online course has two required virtual meetings during the week. (You only need reliable internet connection and an updated browser to access the meetings.)
