Students can register for Spring 2014 beginning and/or continuation courses in November. Be sure to enroll in that 1B you've been thinking of taking to continue all the hard work you've put into 1A this semester. Enroll concurrently in a conversation-based class (10 series) along with a grammar-communication-based class (1, 2, 3) Or pick up where you left off in Spring, it's not too late!

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies or credit-bearing, career-oriented internships abroad. Such international exchange is intended to better prepare U.S. students to assume significant roles in an increasingly global economy and interdependent world.
The Gilman Scholarship Program aims to support students who have been traditionally under-represented in education abroad, including but not limited to, students with high financial need, community college students, students in underrepresented fields such as the sciences and engineering, students with diverse ethnic backgrounds, and students with disabilities. The program seeks to assist students from a diverse range of public and private institutions from all 50 states, Washington, DC and Puerto Rico.
Students who apply for and receive the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad are then eligible to receive a Critical Need Language Award from the Gilman Scholarship Program of $8,000. Applicants who are studying a critical need language while abroad will automatically be considered for the Critical Need Language Award.
Critical Need Languages, taught at CCSF in the Foreign Languages Department, include:
Chinese (all dialects)
Students need to be studying or interning abroad for a minimum of 4 weeks, and can be participating in a CCSF Program OR any program that grants credit that could be transferred to CCSF.If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Jill Heffron, Coordinator of the Study Abroad Program at CCSF, by email (email@example.com), by phone: (415) 239-3778, or stop by the Study Abroad office in Cloud 212. The deadline for Spring 2014 is: October 1, 2013.

For the more advanced student of Spanish, French, or German come these refresher courses from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Refresher courses are non-credit online language courses (French, Spanish and German) that run for three weeks year round.
These teacher-led courses review the curriculum of the first two years while preparing students to take the third year university courses. Every week deals with a new cultural topic and provides students with opportunities to engage in a variety of speaking, writing, reading and listening activities.
While fully online, these courses are teacher-led and are NOT self-paced. There are assignments due every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and students should plan on spending about 9 hours working on the course every week. Students will need daily access to a computer with a high-speed internet connection, headphones, microphone and a webcam.
Classes are capped at 12 students and tuition is $95 for non-CU students. Click here for more information.
