Living the Language in Summer 2021: Part 2

Published: September 1, 2021

After a year of not being able to offer residential programming due to COVID-19, we were delighted to be able to come together this past summer at Concordia Language Villages, both virtually and in-person. We find guidance and hope in our mission to inspire courageous global citizens, and rely on the four Precepts of the CLVway to help us bring our mission to life. In addition to observing enhanced health and wellness protocol, we wanted to be thoughtful about our practices and traditions and what they mean to our many language communities and participants.

Here are a few moments from staff orientation and beyond that explore how we approached programming during the summer of 2021. [Link to: Part 1 of this video series] discusses the Precepts of Grand Simulation and Community-based Learning. Part 2 (below) addresses the Precepts of Lived Language and Culture, as well as Outdoor Learning.
