Villagers during a language class.

Villagers in four-week high school credit-bearing sessions gain an academic year’s worth of Danish language and culture skills through an immersion experience embedded in daily life, featuring a variety of cultural activities as well as formal study and assessment (minimum of 180 instructional hours; accredited by Cognia). Emphasis is on literacy and oracy. Open to all proficiency levels for students entering grades 9-12.
