Program Description:
Cameroon Banner

Intended for students with advanced French language skills, the School in Cameroon enables students to increase their language abilities through housing and interaction with native speakers. Whether spending time with house mates, in classes, or in the city, students use their language in a very real immersion environment.

As its economic and political capital, Yaoundé is an ideal place for immersion into Francophone African life.  Based at the Université Catholique de l'Afrique Centrale, with all classes conducted entirely in French, students at the Middlebury School in Cameroon will be able to take courses in several disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, with direct enrollment as an option for more advanced students of French.
