U.S. Immersion

Spend four weeks of language immersion at one of our beautiful campuses in Vermont.

Our U.S.-based summer immersion programs provide a transformative pre-college experience for rising 8th-12th grade students—from beginners to advanced speakers—who are passionate about learning a language. Languages currently offered at our U.S. Immersion programs are: Arabic, Chinese, German, French and Spanish.

Speaking in your chosen language 24/7 in a beautiful Vermont college campus setting, you'll engage in meaningful cultural exploration projects and gain the linguistic skills and global awareness to help you succeed in college and beyond. Over the course of four weeks, you'll make unrivaled strides in language acquisition, discover new ways of thinking and make connections with new people and cultures that will last the rest of your life.

The life benefits of learning another language are extensive. In college applications, you can differentiate yourself as language-savvy and culturally versed. You can also show colleges and universities, in the most real way possible, that you are dedicated to global citizenship and intercultural exchange.
