We offer two four-week sessions for both low-intermediate learners and high-intermediate/advanced learners. Participants may apply for either one or both summer sessions.
Participants in the short-term language and culture program can receive a certificate of completion or participation, but they do not receive official grades and do not progress through the English Language Program levels. This program is separate from the CEA-accredited English Language Program.
