about the


The Digital School of Russian is a series of language learning experiences collaboratively created by Middlebury’s School of Russian and Office of Digital Learning and Inquiry. These digital language learning experiences — designed to support learning before, during, and after the summer intensive Russian language immersion experience at the Middlebury Language Schools — together represent the joining of language-learning resources and expertise both within and beyond the Middlebury institution. From the hub site, you can access curated materials and exercises to prepare you for Russian language immersion, to keep you in-language during your learning experience at the Language Schools, and to continue your learning after you have completed your formal Russian language studies.
