Middlebury Interactive Languages
The Middlebury Interactive Languages' Summer Academies are residential programs that offer 4 weeks of complete immersion into a foreign language. At the beginning of their designated programs, students take a language pledge and are permitted to speak only in their target language for the program's duration. This has proven to be a very effective way of improving one's language skills. In addition, students gain an appreciation for the target language's culture through food, art, music, and dancing.
Home to the Arabic Academy's summer program, Saint Michael's College is located just off the shores of Lake Champlain near Burlington, Vermont. The program will run from June 23, 2019 to July 19, 2019 and is open to rising 8th to 12th graders, from beginners to advanced students. Financial aid comes on a first-come, first-serve basis, so be sure to apply early.
