MAKE LEARNING A

LIFELONG

ADVENTURE

Our Adult Overnight programs are tailored to adults interested in language and cultural learning for personal or professional enrichment. With adult learners in mind, these weekend and week-long programs are designed according to the immersion principles Concordia Language Villages has been perfecting since 1961.

Weeks and Weekends

The overnight programs feature a rich array of focused and engaging language learning, cultural presentations and hands-on activities (games, sports, cooking, music and more) from the target cultures as well as culturally appropriate meals.

You’ll receive expert instruction in small- and large-group settings. Specific language-learning groups of 4-10 learners are assigned based on participants’ language abilities, allowing everyone to be challenged based on their level of fluency. Learners of all skill levels actively engage in experience-based situated learning scenarios that allow for plenty of practice to advance your competencies.

Sample Schedule

Holiday Weekend Workshops

Celebrate the joy and wonder of the holidays with our Nordic Holiday Weekend Workshop or European Holiday Weekend Workshop. Each December our Villages transform into a holiday paradise where adults spend the weekend baking, crafting and feasting in the traditions of global cultures. Our Nordic event features Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish traditions, while our European event features German, French and Italian.

You’ll enjoy the winter splendor of Minnesota’s North Woods, cozy up to a warm fire and rejoice in the company of friends. Get a head start on holiday shopping at our “Shop the World” holiday store, where you’ll find unique international gifts. You’ll even learn some new songs and language skills to enliven your holiday at home. Everyone leaves our Holiday Workshops with a tray full of goodies, a collection of recipes, hand-made crafts and a happy heart!

Baking projects that participants take home typically include gluten, animal products and often nuts. We are not able to guarantee alternatives. For other dietary or allergy concerns, please contact our health team.

Lodging

Our adult programs are held at our architecturally authentic Language Villages on Turtle River Lake near Bemidji, Minn. We utilize the same communal cabins as our youth programs, with some adjustments. We use only the lower bunks and include temporary partitions between sleeping quarters for greater privacy.

Some of our facilities include bathrooms and showers within the cabins. Others use shared bathroom and shower facilities located just a short walk from the cabin.
