About Concordia Language Villages

Language without limits: creating a world where everyone understands.
For over 60 years, Concordia Language Villages, based in the beautiful North Woods of Minnesota, has been boldly and optimistically pursuing a vision of peace and understanding by introducing learners to the languages and cultures of our world.
We are advocates for language learning and we take pride in our role in creating more language advocates. It is through exposure to language and culture that we believe we can best serve our mission: to prepare young people for responsible citizenship in our global community.
With an annual enrollment of approximately 10,000 young people and 1,500 adults, we offer a wide variety of options with sessions varying in length from one weekend to four weeks. All language levels are welcome, from beginning to advanced. Our villagers come from all 50 states and more than 40 countries.
We are a program of Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota.
