Russian House (Русский дом)
99 Adirondack View
The Russian House at Middlebury is a residential space in which a few upper-level Russian students can live to improve their language skills. Living at the house entails signing a language pledge similar to that of our summer Russian School. Residents promise to speak only Russian while in the house—a place where students can come together to socialize informally in Russian with the help of the resident native-speaking teaching assistant.
The house acts as a learning center not only for the residents, but also for other students of Russian and Russian speakers, who drop in to practice their language skills, get help with homework or just visit. The house provides space for faculty-student gatherings, meals, films, holiday celebrations and other events.
