Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. Formerly the Monterey Institute of International Studies
Opening Paragraph

Language and intercultural communication are central to all degree programs at the Institute.

Language Shapes Our Culture

Language and intercultural communication lie at the very heart of the Institute's mission. To "be the solution" is to view language as a way to connect rather than a barrier, and to use it to facilitate dialogue between different peoples and cultures.

Where will your language skills take you?

For as long as the Institute has been in existence, the Summer Intensive Language Program (SILP) has offered motivated foreign language students an intensive and supportive environment to gain a solid foundation or improve overall proficiency in a language. Our SILP instructors are highly committed and seek to instill in their students an appreciation of the target language and culture.
