The Middlebury School in Italy 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. All students are encouraged to get involved in the community through internships or interactions within the clubs and activities available.
Students with at least two years of Italian may study at any of our three sites, including coursework at a local university. In Florence, we also offer a Beginner and Intermediate track.
