For 40 years, Concordia has offered intensive, credit-bearing language learning sessions. These month-long sessions are proven to help students achieve one high school year of language instruction or one college-semester of language instruction.
Concordia is nationally and internationally recognized for its commitment to global education, including accelerated language learning for youth and adults in an immersion setting.
Strong Faculty-Student Interactions
The faculty/staff to student ratio is 1:5, providing excellent one-on-one coaching in English by highly trained immersion experts and informal conversational groups with peer mentors who are American college-age students.
Concordia has more than 50 years of expertise in language and cultural immersion programming in 15 languages, including English for international students.
You will become more fluent and confident as you study English and experience American culture through activities in our upper Midwestern community. In addition, we'll introduce you to typical American college life so that you'll be ready academically, socially and culturally for a smooth transition into the U.S. higher education system.
