Concordia Language Villages is excited to offer participants additional opportunities to begin or continue their adventure in language and cultural learning. Villagers ages 10-18 (age ranges vary by language) can join one or more Virtual Village sessions. All proficiency levels, from beginning to advanced, are welcome. Experience fun, interactive language learning and cultural activities all from the comfort of 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.
Offerings vary by language.
One week Virtual Village summer sessions offer language and cultural immersion for villagers ages 8-18 throughout the summer. Villagers can take one week or multiple in the same language or across languages. Sessions provide at least two and a half hours of virtual, interactive immersion in the target language each day, Monday-Friday.
All language levels are welcome. Where possible, villagers will be grouped by similar proficiency level and age. Staff to villager ratio of 1:6, on average.
Clubs offer a less formal option for practicing your target language and engaging with your Language Village friends. Join us for one hour a week for six weeks in the fall or spring to experience a new aspect of the cultures where your language of choice is spoken—all while increasing your language proficiency! Try your hand at making an omelet in French, virtually visit a Swedish museum, learn the flamenco in Spanish and so much more! Additional activities for villagers to complete at home will be provided to maximize the fun!

Virtual Village Classes offer a real-time interactive small group setting for language and cultural learning. These hands-on experiences follow a roadmap for six weeks in the fall or spring and take villagers on a journey to increased language proficiency. Asynchronous activities for villagers to complete at home will be provided to extend learning.
All language levels are welcome. Villager age ranges vary by each Virtual Village Class. Sessions meet twice per week for either 30 minutes (grade school) or 60 minutes (middle and high school) over Zoom; schedules are determined by each Virtual Village Class.
Virtual high school credit programs are offered each fall and spring in select languages. Available languages vary by session. Like our overnight camps, these 24-week programs provide 180 hours of instruction, meeting twice weekly for 2.5 hours (typically 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m Central).
Expand your experience with the culture and language of your choice by joining a Virtual Workshop designed to teach new skills and enhance knowledge of global communities. Workshops can range from single-session activities to multi-session series focused on learning a new art or skill. When you join one of our new Virtual Workshops, you'll come away with practical knowledge that goes beyond language learning.
