To acquire a new language, start by engaging your mind.
At the Spanish School, we believe that engaging your mind with topics of interest—from history and the arts to current events and cooking—is the best way to tap into the motivation you need to succeed.
The School is a summer home for some of the foremost teachers, scholars, and artists in the Spanish-speaking world. You’ll learn from them during daily classroom instruction, as well as at individual review sessions and drop-in evening office hours. Outside of class, you'll join them in cocurricular activities designed to help you build new vocabulary while developing cultural fluency—from dancing salsa to cooking paella, from competing on the soccer field to hosting your own radio show.
This powerful blend of rigorous academic study and varied cocurricular activity has made the Spanish School one of the world’s premier language immersion programs.
- Students at the undergraduate level in the Spanish School may elect to study at either our West Coast site, at Mills College, in Oakland, California, or at the Middlebury campus in Vermont. Application and financial aid processes are identical for both campuses. For more information on Middlebury at Mills, please click here.
