Summer Language Intensives

Learn a New Language this Summer

Immerse yourself in French, Spanish or American Sign Language

Improve your language skills quickly from wherever you are this summer in our condensed one, two and three-week Summer Language Intensives, offered at a variety of levels. Enjoy an immersive language experience, gain practical conversational skills, and still have time to enjoy the good weather.

Take part in small, virtual and interactive classes taught and facilitated by our experienced instructors. Focus on conversation practice, group activities and pair work with your classmates in Zoom breakout rooms.

In French and Spanish courses, connect to rich cultures from around the world. Enjoy music, song, poetry, videos and more, all drawn from modern Francophone or Spanish and Latin American life. On select days, take part in engaging workshops and virtual visits from special guests who live and work in the language you’re learning.

In American Sign Language courses, learn from Deaf and DeafBlind instructors. Discover the importance of this visual language as you learn to sign precisely and fluidly, using your face and body to express meanings and grammar. Gain insights into Deaf culture, history and lived experiences with visitors from the Deaf community.

Come away from your classes feeling more confident in your language skills, more connected, and appreciative of the diversity of our communities and world.
