Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors!! Are you still looking for something to do over the summer? The Center for Language Studies at Beloit College offers students the opportunity to make significant strides in the study of Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, or Russian and earn up to a year’s worth of college credit.

In its 33rd year, the Center for Language Studies takes an immersive approach to language learning that integrates cultural events on and off campus and daily language lunches with classroom activities. Students studying the same language live together, and they agree to adhere to our Dawn ‘til Dusk Target Language Policy. Their language programs are taught by excellent faculty members from all over the country, who live alongside the students on campus. Small class sizes ensure that students receive individualized instruction, and faculty members have office hours each evening to provide additional support.

This year, the program will take place June 11-August 5. It is open to anyone age 16 and older, and they are still accepting applications through May 20. Scholarships are available!! Click here for more information.
