Language Requirements

Learners of all skill-levels are welcome. There is no prerequisite of having studied any language before joining a Language Village experience. From the pre-program language skill survey to small language learning groups, to generous access to individual program staff members and instructors – many of whom are native speakers – various individuals will help direct the focus, the intensity and the outcomes of your learning.

The only pre-requisite is that you come prepared to actively engage in an intense and fun learning experience, a willingness to accept not understanding every single word the first time you hear or see it, and a desire to push yourself beyond your comfort zone.

The design of the programs and the teaching approach utilized by the program staff provide opportunities to succeed for all learners, no matter their skill level, their background or their outcome objectives. We invite you to join the thousands of adult learners who’ve enjoyed language learning at Concordia Language Villages. Hundreds come back year after year, some as many as 15 or more years!  It is a fun, challenging, and rewarding experience in a joyful learning community rich with camaraderie and lasting friendships.
