Summer/Winter Online Courses

Online Courses Overview

The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at Binghamton University offers courses for French, Italian, and Spanish, from introductory through graduate level. Many of our courses fulfill various Gen Ed designations for SUNY students. 

Through the combination of asynchronous work and synchronous instructor conversations, our courses hone interpersonal skills, as well as develop the four modes of communication in the target language: reading, speaking, listening, and writing. In a different time zone, or have a job? Not a problem! You can still learn a language on your own time. Moreover, our instructors will schedule the weekly synchronous conversations at mutually convenient times.While our winter/summer courses are only a few weeks long, our instructors and course structure will prepare you for the next sequence course. Our instructors provide personal attention and feedback.
