Whether online or on-site in northern Minnesota, Concordia Language Villages is committed to inspiring courageous global citizens. Now you can begin or continue your adventure in language and cultural learning virtually from the comfort of home. Villagers 18 and older are welcome to join us for a variety of online experiences, from beginner to advanced, formal class to informal conversation. The four precepts of the CLVway continue to be the backbone of these fun, interactive virtual immersion programs. Virtual sessions are a great way to keep up with your target language or explore a new language and culture all year long!
Offerings vary by language.
Virtual Village Conversations offer informal discussions about everyday life, current events or other topics of interest to you—all in your target language at your level of proficiency. How sessions are leveled varies by language; some sessions are all levels while others off beginning and intermediate/advanced options. Conversation Hours meet in the fall and spring.
Virtual Village Adult Classes offer real-time, interactive small group learning. These hands-on experiences follow a roadmap for either six or twelve weeks during the fall or spring and take you on a journey to increased language proficiency. Real-life language you can use. Real culture you can enjoy. Real people with whom you can share. Classes include activities you complete on your own time to extend your learning.
Virtual Workshops provide the opportunity to learn and explore world cultures through focused sessions dedicated to cooking, travel within a country/region and other topics and activities that broaden knowledge and appreciation of life in the locations of your language of interest. Sign up for one or more sessions and get ready to explore!
