Live a Language

Learning a language is a window to the world and the key to living, participating and competing in a global society. Middlebury Interactive offers students a summer of cultural and linguistic exploration in the US and abroad in China and Spain—participants make a remarkable transformation and become true global citizens during the four-week summer language program. The Residential Academies were developed for middle and high school students, from beginners to advanced learners.

The Academy is based on Middlebury College's long-standing tradition of immersive education, the gold standard in language learning for almost a century. Participants take the Middlebury Language Pledge® which inspires them to communicate in their target language at all times. Language instructors at the Academy are trained extensively on Middlebury's immersion method and support individual learning styles. The Academy is a unique and enriching life experience that prepares students for a globally connected 21st Century.
