At the Center for Language Studies at Beloit (CLS) we are committed to you, the student. We offer you a unique atmosphere in which to study one of four challenging languages. Our approach allows you to immerse yourself in your target language inside and outside the classroom through cultural activities and meals, personalized teaching and mentoring from our staff, and interaction with fellow students. CLS encourages you to live your language.
The faculty-student ratio is 1:6. Our faculty not only teach you but also eat with you and reside on campus, assuring that throughout the day you have someone to talk to in your target language, as well as someone to answer questions and to help you explore the intricacies of the language and the related culture, history, and society.
You will emerge from our program with confidence in the language, excellent grammar skills, and an appreciation for food, films, music, and other cultural mores.
