Travel Abroad Earning High School Credit this Summer!

Interested in improving your language skills this summer while traveling abroad and earning a full year of high school credit? If you are 16-18 years old and have at least one year of high school language study in French, German or Spanish, read on! 


Concordia Language Villages, a pioneer in innovative language learning, has launched an exciting new four-week credit abroad program this summer in partnership with Xperitas (, an educational travel company based in Minneapolis with 70 years of experience in language and cultural immersion, helping students connect with communities abroad and become global citizens.


As a Credit Abroad participant, you will spend the first two weeks studying at one of the Language Villages immersed in culture and language in northern Minnesota. Afterwards, you’ll fly to either France, Germany or Costa Rica to “live the language” through a combination of homestays and guided educational tours.

So, what’s different about this particular study abroad program?

You’ll receive world-class preparation before you go focused on language study, practical communication skills, and the cultural nuances of speaking and living in a foreign country. But they won’t be your typical language classes, but rather Concordia Language Villages trademark immersion methodology that includes culturally authentic activities such as music, dance, games and sports. The result is that you will hit the ground speaking, ready to make the most of your time abroad!

It’s a fast and fun way to earn one year of credit (which looks good on your transcript), and will help you excel in your language classes at school in the fall.

Space is limited and enrollment is based on acceptance into the program, so apply early!

We strongly recommend that you apply by February 22. All application materials, including required forms and a phone interview, must by completed by March 1 in order to enroll in this program.
