Concordia Language Immersion Program
Someday, I would like to travel to Korea. And there are many opporttunities in which you can do so. Such as teaching English abroad, or going on a missionary trip. But another way that would be beneficial to one of the nearby communities, would be to perhaps help build a school. When the chances arrive, I would be better prepared for such by attending CLV.
Having an infatuation for foreign languages and cultures, I found Korean to be more interesting than most languages I had tried learning in the past. When I stumbled upon Concordia, it was the most diverse language program I had yet to find, and incorporated many important aspects. I also really enjoyed the setting.
Unlike many other language programs which base their focus solely on language, CLV combines the best of both worlds.
With their perfect balance between language and cultural activities, you can learn multiple things at once without feeling brain-dead from the lack of attention to anything other than grammer.
At Concordia you can participate in Taekwondo, try your hand at traditional drums, and even get to taste the local food. Korean is spoken everyday, and with new friends and counselors to practice with, speaking the new language becomes more and more comfortable. With something like self-study, you are unconfident when you finally get to speak the language to a native. But at Concordia, common interest are shared, and the language becomes easier and less intimidating by the minute.
