Middlebury in China Students Speak - In Chinese

A few days ago we once again had the pleasure of working with the "graduating" class of Middlebury's China program. Middlebury College's language programs have long been famous for their language pledge: the students can speak nothing but Chinese during the entire program. It is always a bit surreal to have our offices full of non-Chinese students speaking Chinese to each other.

While we're sure that the language pledge took some getting used to, hopefully the students realized when they watched their interviews just how valuable it was.
