Spanish One-Week Virtual Village | Concordia Language Villages

Spanish One-Week Virtual Village | Ages 8-18

Villagers ages 8-18 have the opportunity to participate in a one-week Virtual Village session during the summer — a perfect introduction to El Lago del Bosque!

One-week Virtual Village sessions at El Lago del Bosque provide at least two and a half hours of virtual, interactive immersion in Spanish each day, Monday-Friday. Villagers will be grouped by age and language level and each week will be based on a different theme. For each theme, examples of cultural activities could include arts and crafts, cooking, painting/drawing/mixed media art, journalism, poetry, exercise/yoga and more!

Villagers will meet daily from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Central with asynchronous activities provided for the afternoon.

Sample Schedule:

Time Activity
10 - 10:30 a.m. Morning Whole Group Activity and Dancing
10:30 - 11:15 a.m. Language Learning Groups  (~6 villagers by level)
11:15 - 11:30 a.m. Snack Time
11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Cultural Activities  (~8 villagers by age/level)
12:15 - 12:30 p.m. Cabin Council

Villagers will be placed into language learning groups (tertulias) based on their previous experience with Spanish. Meeting with the same counselors each day, Spanish knowledge and skills will be built through the exploration of our themes.

After Tertulias, villagers will participate in a short all-Village singing session and then join another small-group session for cultural activities where there are lots of opportunities to interact with other villagers close in age as well as with different staff members.

After cultural activities, we will end the morning session with cabin council where villagers will reflect upon their morning and make goals and plans for the asynchronous afternoon during which they continue living the language through completion of independent activities. These optional activities are highly encouraged so that villagers can dive deeper into the Spanish language and culture based on their interests and, who knows, they might even seek the participation of their family and friends!
