Summers in Madison!

Summer in Madison is not to be missed. From spending Saturday mornings at the Dane County Farmer’s Market—the nation’s largest—to watching a sunset on UW-Madison’s iconic Terrace while enjoying a brat and world-famous Babcock ice cream. Take in live music on the lawn of the Wisconsin state capitol building during concerts on the square, or enjoy lakeside running and the city’s many bike paths, which have earned Madison accolades as one of the best cities for cycling. All of these activities and more provide exciting and unique contexts for practicing as you hone your language skills.
