Many villagers choose to continue their global education at Concordia College, taking advantage of numerous opportunities for language study, learning abroad and international internships. While at Concordia, students can hone their language skills working as counselors at the Villages during summer and academic year programs.
Programs for All Ages
Youth ages 7-18 and adults of all language experience levels can choose from on-site learning options ranging from a weekend to four weeks. Most Concordia Language Villages programs take place in architecturally authentic "villages" on 850 lakefront acres just outside Bemidji, Minn.
Established through Concordia College in 1961, Concordia Language Villages boldly and optimistically pursues a vision of peace and understanding by introducing learners to the languages and cultures of the world.
