Are you looking for a way to enhance your Spanish skills over the summer? Middlebury College offer its Spanish Language School  – or Escuela Española – students the benefits of an immersion experience without leaving the U.S.

At the Escuela Española, which began in 1917, students live on the Middlebury campus in Vermont and pledge to speak exclusively Spanish in the dorms, at meals and during classes and co-curricular activities. Leading professors and guest speakers from around the Spanish-speaking world convene at the Escuela to instruct and guide students in their language journey. Students are placed in one of five levels of Spanish courses, ranging from beginning to advanced, based on their placement exam scores.

The dates of the seven-week undergraduate program are June 29 – August 17, 2018. The  cost for tuition, room and board is $9,610. Need-based financial aid is available.
