Does your college require a foreign language study component? Are you having trouble fitting it into your schedule, or is foreign language study foreign to you? Perhaps you might benefit from summer immersion studies offered by several accredited colleges and universities that give you an opportunity to engage in concentrated language study without any other coursework to distract you. These programs offer an opportunity to study full time for seven or eight weeks, and finish with credit for a full year of college language study (a total of eight credit hours in most cases), which can be transferred back to your home college according to their transfer credit policy. Here are a few with which I have had personal experience:
Beloit College Center for Language Studies offers summer classes in Chinese, Japanese, Portugese & Russian. Portuguese is first year only; all other languages are offered first through fourth year studies. https://www.beloit.edu/summer-programs/center-for-language-studies/

In addition, your local community colleges may also provide interesting courses over the summer that fulfill your language or other educational requirements at your university.
