Virtual Villages: Adult Programs

Concordia Language Villages is excited to offer participants new opportunities to begin or continue their adventure in language and cultural learning! Villagers 18 and older can join us for one of our Adult Virtual Village sessions — beginning to advanced language learners welcome! Experience fun, interactive language learning and cultural activities — all from home. The four precepts of the CLVway will continue to be the backbone of the immersion experience. It’s REAL language, REAL culture and REAL people. Whether online or in northern Minnesota, Concordia Language Villages is committed to inspiring courageous global citizens.​

Class

Virtual Village Adult Classes offer a real-time interactive small group setting for language and cultural learning for villagers 18 and older. These hands-on experiences follow a roadmap for either six or twelve weeks and take you on a journey to increased language proficiency. REAL-life language you can use. REAL culture you can enjoy. REAL people with whom you can share. We also provide you with asynchronous activities you can do at home to extend your learning.

All language levels welcome. Participant age ranges vary by each Virtual Village Class. Where possible, participants will be grouped by similar proficiency. Staff to villager ratio of 1:6, on average. Sessions meet twice per week for 60 minutes over Zoom; schedules are determined by each Virtual Village Class.
