About

The Middlebury program in Niterói offers cultural and linguistic immersion through a rigorous curriculum and adherence to the Middlebury Language Pledge. By pledging to speak only the target language while abroad, students will have the best chance of acquiring fluency and actively engaging in the local environment. Participants take their courses directly in a local university, at the Universidade Federal Fluminense, and all students are encouraged to get involved in the community through internships or interactions within the clubs and activities available.

Students looking for more advanced language preparation prior to the start of the spring semester in Latin America are encouraged to participate in the four-week Portuguese program in Florianopolis. This program is the equivalent of a fourth-semester Portuguese course, and focuses on the study of the cultural and social characteristics of the local Carnaval.

Highlights
  • All course work is conducted entirely in Portuguese
  • Students adhere to the Middlebury College Language Pledge
