Middlebury’s School of Hebrew combines the best of two worlds—a time-tested curriculum and an immersion learning environment.

Spend a summer at the Language Schools and you'll experience the single most effective method for rapid language acquisition: a total immersion environment with the Language Pledge®—a promise to read, write, listen, and speak only in your language of study. Programs are open to undergraduates, recent graduates, graduate students at other institutions, and professionals of all ages.

Live in Language

In class, you'll rapidly build proficiency with the help of our dedicated faculty and benefit from our rigorous approach to daily classroom instruction in the four major skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Outside the classroom, you'll participate in organized in-language cocurricular activities—including soccer, theater, academic reading and lectures—each designed to help you build new vocabulary while developing cultural fluency.

Throughout your summer in the School of Hebrew, you’ll find the focus is exactly where you need it to be—on working towards true linguistic and cultural fluency.


Thanks to the support of generous donors (including Language Schools alumni) and Middlebury’s commitment to providing an opportunity for as many students as possible, we are pleased to offer need-based financial aid and merit-based fellowships and scholarships.

You’ll find several options available for both the immersion and graduate programs, as well as funding for specific languages of study.
