Gloria Zhang is a second-semester student in the Translation and Localization Management (TLM) program at MIIS, with a focus in the localization track. This past January, she participated in Team France, one of the immersive professional learning programs during J-term.
Team France 2020, led by Professor David Wick in the International Education Management (IEM) program, took participants to Paris, where students made site visits to Middlebury Le Centre Madeleine, Campus France, CEA Paris, Sciences Po Bordeaux, and many more. Students also got to learn about the history of croissants and baguettes at a French bakery.
For Middlebury Institute students, the January Term (J-term) offers the opportunity to put theories and lessons to the test in courses offered in five different countries, work on directed study projects at home or abroad, or get ahead by taking intensive subject matter classes on campus.
As part of her degree in translation, Valeria Piña Fonseca went to the Peruvian Amazon during winter break to help Amazon Ecolodge translate documents about the living conditions of the local communities, like the Bora community in the picture.
