As we all work hard to balance our needs to look after our health and that of others with the need to continue with our plans as scheduled, Beloit College has announced that the Center for Language Studies will be offered this summer in a distance learning format.
We remain committed to a world-class summer language immersion experience for you. Our superb instructional team is already planning an engaging, interactive and exciting program that maximizes the potential of virtual learning platforms and social media.
Format: We will keep class sizes small (10 - 12) to foster quality interaction with instructors and peers using a fresh and diverse set of tools. From 9 am - 11:30 am and 1 pm to 3 pm, US Central Time, Monday through Friday, you can expect two to three hours of direct contact with your full class, interspersed with group work, independent exercises, and individual meetings. Through engaging, fun co-curricular activities and tutoring in the afternoons and evenings, we will surround you with the opportunities to live their language. 
We will miss you on campus, but on the positive side, you will save on transportation and housing! Fees are only $1,900 for one session and $3,800 for all seven weeks, if you deposit by the early bird deadline of April 10th.
Information for accepted students has been updated here, and you will no longer need to submit your health form or your housing contract.
As always we are all here to talk with you and answer your questions. Don’t hesitate to ask if you need our help. Just send a message to Josh Moore
We send you our wishes for health and safety, and we look forward to supporting you.
