For DA students who might need a little help preparing for their language exam, I’m going to pass on this notice from the CUNY Grad Center. They also offer a wider range of intensive language programs in the summer.
The CUNY Graduate Center Language Reading Program will offer intensive, non-credit courses in four languages in the fall term designed to assist graduate students in meeting the language requirements for their degrees. These courses last for twelve weeks and aim at developing a reading knowledge of the languages.Separate tuition by check, cash, or money order only ($275 per course for currently matriculated CUNY students, $795 for others) must be paid for offerings of the Program. Registration forms are available in the office of the Language Reading Program, Room 4415 , on the fourth floor of the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue (between 34th and 35th Streets) and in the lobby. Registration can be handled either in person or by mail; it is not handled by the registrar’s office, nor do these courses appear on the student’s transcript. However, official documentation of each student’s performance will be supplied by the office of the Language Reading Program upon request. Registration closes on January 19th, but some classes will be closed before then. For further information, please call (212) 817-2081 or see our website (http://web.gc.cuny.edu/lrp).Level One courses in French, German, Latin, and Spanish which assume no knowledge of the language, meet twice a week, Mondays and Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., beginning February 6th and ending May 10th.Level Two courses in French and German assume an ability to read scholarly articles and meet Mondays and Thursdays from 4:15 to 6:15 p.m., beginning February 6th and ending May 10th.
