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 "virtual 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!
