The Chinese House

108 South Main St.
Middlebury, VT

The Chinese House is where eight students of Chinese can live to improve their language skills. Living at the house entails signing a language pledge similar to that of Middlebury's summer school. This pledge obliges the student to speak only Chinese while in the house. It is a place where Chinese students can come together with the resident native-speaking lecturer. The house contains eight singles, a living room area, dining room area, and kitchen where the students may take full advantage of cooking Chinese food.
