qusqu asked: Hi, I have two questions. First of all, I am curious how many foreign languages are offered at Oberlin. Second of all, I would like to know funding works for Winter Term if you go abroad or if you need to fly somewhere but don't necessarily have the money for that. Thanks so much!

Oberlin offers Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Italian, Russian, Spanish, and Ancient Greek (EDIT: also Latin, thanks cowboykiller!) taught by professors. There have been intensive language courses in Ancient Greek, French, Italian, Russian, and Korean (EDIT: Also German! Thanks myladyemily!) offered for winter term, taught by students and faculty in the past. There are also a handful of language ExCos taught each semester, which change with the student instructors, but I’ve seen Klingon, Korean, and Swedish (EDIT: and Lebanese! Thanks myladyemily!) in the past few years.

Relatedly, you may be interested in learning more about the Oberlin Center for Language and Culture, led by Professor Sebastiaan Faber.

When it come to funding for winter term, the only option I currently know of is a selection of winter term grants and more info on those can be found on the Office of Winter Term website. Getting in touch with/visiting their office should also provide you with more ideas and possibilities, too.

EDIT: The Office of Career Services has shared with us a few other funding options. Yay for them!

All these funding options are listed (with relevant apps) at the bottom of the intern preparedness part of the career services website.
