Language Enhancement and Advancement Program

Looking to strengthen your foreign language skills? Want to get ahead on your language requirement and free up class time for your major? Make it happen in this fun four-day immersion refresher course taught by faculty in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Loyola!

L.E.A.P. takes place just before the start of the Fall  2020 semester, so you can move in to your residence hall early and jump-start your college adventure! These refresher courses are designed for students who will be enrolling in second and third semester Spanish or French classes. During the day, we offer focused language study using the latest technology, individual attention, and learning strategies from experts on how to be successful in the core language requirement. In the evening, there will be activities such as dinner at an ethnic restaurant, a picnic, movies, games, and more! To top it off, you’ll have time to retake the placement exam on the last day of the program. 

Get ready for travel on the road to language success!


Saturday, August 22 - Wednesday, August 26*
*On Wednesday, L.E.A.P. classes will end at 12:00 pm, before the 2020 Fall Welcome program begins
