"Middlebury College is renowned for its language schools and I confirm this to be true. The total immersion experience improved my confidence in speaking, writing and understanding French. As a totally blind student my necessary accommodations were fully supported by the admissions staff, faculty and students. My time at Middlebury is a treasured memory."

"The Middlebury Graduate School in Italian was top-notch, in my opinion, in teaching the language and providing you with the best instructors. I got the opportunity to study abroad for the year in Florence, Italy. It really gives you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the language and culture. Not to mention the great opportunity to take class at the local university and meet some of the top professors in academia.The staff were incredible helpful with any problems I encountered. The only con I felt was that, because we were in a major city, it was difficult to built that sense of camaraderie within the department. We didn't really see up other that often.I would have liked to have had conferences or meetings that give the graduate students a chance to mingle."

"It is the best in terms of learning to fluently speak a language. They really immerse you within the language and culture."

"The Middlebury Russian language graduate program has been by far the most intense educational experience of my life. The expectations are very high, as well as the stress levels to deal with the workload. However, the results are nothing short of miraculous when I compare my comprehension and language ability now, to what they were prior to the program. Anyone truly interested in Slavic languages and literatures should strongly consider at least one summer of study at the Middlebury program."

"The Middlebury Language School can seem a bit pricey, but it is well worth the cost considering how much is included. It is an intense immersion program that has you using the target language 24/7 inside and outside of the classroom with cultural events that allow you to keep learning and experiencing the language in many different ways. The faculty is great! The professors come from everywhere and many are published authors and accomplished musicians. The students are all ages and come from all walks of life (although most seem to be teachers like me). This makes for a very interesting mix of people and always leads to fantastic conversation. You give up six weeks out of your summer, but you come away with nine graduate credits and an experience that you just can't buy anywhere else. I LOVE it!"

"The French school's method of employing French-speaking professors from across the globe, housing French students together, and requiring the exclusive use of French transform the would-be provincial American rural setting into a cosmopolitan francophone experience. The rigor of the courses within three specializations is unrivaled, and the schools abroad require participants to operate like French university students. This is not a program designed and directed by American professors imagining the French university experience, but by Francophones who have lived it and know how to deliver it. This is the real thing!"
