A Middlebury student shares calligraphy techniques with local 5th graders

Language in Motion (LiM) is an educational collaboration that connects Middlebury’s international, study abroad, and upper level language students with Addison County elementary, middle, and high school teachers, students, and classrooms.

Language in Motions applications for Fall 2024 will open soon!

Interested in joining Language in Motion? Apply for the Fall 2024 semester starting in September!

With support and training, Middlebury College students prepare and deliver lessons that promote global awareness, intercultural competence, and world language acquisition.

How It Works

LiM presentations are designed to support the host teacher’s learning objectives. School-age children gain new exposure to diverse culture, language, and experience, and the opportunities that college can offer. Middlebury College students gain exposure to the elementary and secondary teaching environment and deepen their international and intercultural experience through personal and shared reflection.

Application Details

Applications to join Language in Motion are open early in the Fall and Spring semesters. Fall applications are open during September, and spring applications are open during February. Keep an eye out during the year for specific application deadlines each semester.

Reach out to Kristen Mullins, kmullins@middlebury.edu with any questions.

A National Consortium

Active at Middlebury since 2014, LiM was founded at Juniata College in 2000 and has since been implemented at thirteen other colleges and universities. The Middlebury College LiM program was made possible at Middlebury through the generous support of the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations as well as the support of our consortium partners.

Drive for LiM

LiM is looking for students to help drive students to and from local K-12 schools to deliver their lessons. You need a college license in order to drive.
