Advice for Middlebury Chinese Language School?

Recommended Posts

ashuapmushuan

I am planning on studying in the undergraduate program at Middlebury this coming summer. I was wondering about other people's experiences with the program. Likes and dislikes? Advantages and disadvantages? Most of what I know about the program so far comes from the facilitators themselves, and I would really like to know some more honest opinions.

Granted, that review I wrote of the Graduate Summer Program for Chinese, applies only to the graduate school level. I did not like that program at all. I do remember undergraduates there seemed to like the undergraduate program though.

I actually found your review quite helpful. I understand a lot of your critiques. Do you think that the issues you had with the overall program to be symptomatic of the Graduate Program specifically?

I spent 99% of my time in the Graduate Program and only 1% of my time observing and interacting with the undergraduates, so yes to your question. Which is why I am not planning to come back.
