Learn an entire year of a language online this summer! This program is ideal for academically advanced high school students who want the opportunity to either learn a new language or continue learning a language in classes with current UChicago students as well as visiting undergraduate and graduate students.
Students have the opportunity to take modern or ancient language courses. Beginning and intermediate intensive modern language courses are designed for students wishing to develop proficiency across all four language skills—speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Beginning and intermediate ancient language courses guide students in building and honing their reading abilities and their familiarity with ancient texts and culture.
Courses are between six and eight weeks long. Read each course listing carefully.
Each intensive Summer Language course, regardless of length, is the equivalent to three quarter-long (10 week) courses, and meets for a least 90 contact hours. See individual course descriptions for prerequisites, if any.
