Students online class

Take a trip to beautiful and friendly Monterey, California and practice communicating in English without having to leave home. Middlebury Institute’s online English program gives you the opportunity to practice speaking in English while learning about U.S. culture.

We offer two flexible formats for students to practice practical English vocabulary, phrases, and grammar to improve their confidence in speaking English:

Fully Self-Paced Option (asynchronous)

Students complete this course independently with support and feedback from a course instructor. Students watch videos, complete quizzes and exercises, and practice speaking. Students practice speaking by recording themselves speaking and uploading their recordings to the course web site, and they receive feedback on their performance from experienced English teachers.

Students can begin taking the course any time. Click here to register for this course
