How do you create the perfect conditions for rapid language acquisition? Combine a proven curriculum with a pure language environment.
Opened in the summer of 2008, the Brandeis University-Middlebury School of Hebrew combines the best of two worlds—a time-tested curriculum developed at Brandeis and an immersion-learning environment for which the Language Schools have been celebrated for nearly a century.
As a student in the School of Hebrew you’ll benefit from our rigorous approach to daily classroom instruction, leading to rapid gains in the four major skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Outside the classroom, you'll participate in organized in-language cocurricular activities—including soccer, theater, story-telling, and film club—each designed to help you build new vocabulary while developing cultural fluency.
Throughout your summer in the School of Hebrew, you’ll find the focus is exactly where you need it to be—on working towards true linguistic and cultural fluency.
