Virtual Villages: Youth Programs

​Concordia Language Villages is excited to offer participants new opportunities to begin or continue their adventure in language and cultural learning! Villagers ages 8-18 (age ranges vary by language) can join one or more Virtual Village sessions — beginning to advanced language learners welcome! Experience fun, interactive language learning and cultural activities — all from home. The four precepts of the CLVway will continue to be the backbone of the immersion experience. It’s REAL language, REAL culture and REAL people. Whether online or in Northern Minnesota, Concordia Language Villages is committed to inspiring courageous global citizens.
