Summer Online Language Courses

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

We now offer the First-Year and Second-Year sequence (LL 151, 152, LL 251, and 252 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.)

2nd session (LL 152) 7/2/2018 - 8/16/2018
