Foreign Language & Literature

Foreign Language & Literature

Make your second language, second nature.
Language skills continue to be a valuable asset in a rapidly globalizing world. Whether you plan on living and working overseas or using your language skills to advance your career in the U.S., proficiency in a second language set you apart from your peers and provides profound insight into other peoples and cultures. CEA offers language programs for students at all levels in a variety of formats and lengths, from 2-week intensive sessions to year-long options. We also offer programs for students who are ready to direct enroll in classes with local students and take a full course load in a foreign language.

We offer language courses at our CEA Study Centers and at our international partner institutions, many of which specialize in language training. By choosing to study language with CEA, you’ll have the incredible opportunity to take your learning outside of the classroom and experience it within your host culture. You’ll benefit from the support of our local staff and faculty, who are just as invested in your study abroad experience as you are. You’ll not only enhance your language skills while studying abroad, but also expand your global competency and cross-cultural skills.

Want to take your studies a step further? Enroll in an internship and complete a language- focused placement either in semester or summer. Internships are available in select locations in small to medium local companies that allow you to immerse into the host culture and business environment and develop the necessary skillsets in your field of interest.

Loving Every Minute
I loved every minute of it. The teachers were experts in their field and shared their experiences with the class. The classes were small and teachers got to know and took an interest in each student.
