For the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ

Foreign Language Camp

June 27 - July 1, 2016

If you enjoy learning about new languages and cultures, you’ll want to join us this summer for our Foreign Language Camp.  Students of Spanish, French, and German will use their language skills to interact with professors, university students, and one another in an effort to investigate the cuisine of different Spanish, French, and German speaking cultures.  Your investigation will include online research, communicating with Cedarville students that are studying abroad, and a visit to an amazing international market that holds over 50,000 items from over 70 different countries.  After shopping our way across Europe and Latin America, we’ll return to the campus so that you can try your hand at recreating a local dish, all while improving your language skills!

(Students attending this camp should have at least two years of foreign language instruction.)

The Foreign Language Camp is sponsored by the Department of English, Literature and Modern Languages.

Foreign Language Camp is open to Christian students entering 10th through 12th grades, or incoming freshmen to Cedarville University, who are considering studying a foreign language or just enjoy learning about new languages and cultures.
