From the Dean of the College, Dr. Chawne Kimber
World Language Academy Students,
It is exciting that Washington and Lee is hosting the World Languages Academies program for the 13th time. The program was started in 1987 by the Department of Education and W&L began to partner in 2011 under the leadership of Dick Kuettner. We are currently under the fourth grant from the DOE and look forward to continuing to help develop students into engaged global citizens through this program.

From the Program Coordinator, Dr. Dick Kuettner
Washington and Lee University has hosted the full-immersion World Language Academies since 2011 and welcomes aspiring linguists to its campus in Lexington where opportunities for language and culture development abound as part of the daily routine. Please take advantage of your time with this outstanding full-immersion program. Allow yourself to mesh cultures with practical language use. You’ll be the winner in the end!
