Our two-week youth immersion program is open to villagers ages 8-18 of all proficiency levels. Villagers in two-week sessions gain and enhance language and culture skills through an immersion experience embedded in daily life and featuring games, sports, crafts, music, outdoor activities, etc. Emphasis is on listening comprehension and speaking. Open to all proficiency levels.

Two-week villagers share their experiences at Sjölunden.
