Eight French Middlebury language schools students standing together in a classroom.

The Betty Ashbury Jones MA ’86 School of French reflects the diversity and richness of both France and the greater Francophone world.

Our 7-week immersion program is designed for pure beginners to intermediate and advanced.


Daily activities normally include four hours of classroom instruction plus three to five hours of homework, followed by a range of cocurricular activities. Each level has an integrated program and students must take all parts for a total of three undergraduate units, which is equal to nine credit hours at other universities and colleges.


Placement in a specific level is determined by language proficiency. All students take a language assessment prior to the start of the program. The language assessment is not part of the application process. Read more about level placement.
