New this summer, Concordia Language Villages will offer a two-week Tour du Monde / Giro del Mondo (tour of the world) program. This Explorer’s Club program takes place at Lago del Bosco, the Italian Language Village in Hackensack, Minnesota, and is an opportunity to use your French or Italian learning in a new way!
Vent Frais, which literally means “cool wind,” comes from one of the prettiest songs that we sing summer after summer around campfires in northern Minnesota. The communities we build around those campfires, and throughout our summers together, are the heart of our programs. This newsletter is our way of keeping the community connected during the year.
Learning is not just for kids— and neither is summer camp! We hope that you will join us for a week or a weekend of immersion this July.
New 2019 summer adult sessions will run alongside youth sessions at our beautiful Camp Holiday location near Hackensack, MN.
Another year abroad for Marianne brings new cultures to appreciate, new ecosystems to explore, and important lessons to share!
This is generally one of the first questions I am asked when people find out I speak French. They seem surprised I didn’t choose a more common language in my area, like Spanish. They are even more surprised by my answer - “Because I’m Lebanese.”
