LTC Description:

At the Concordia Language Training Center, the approach to language teaching puts learners into a grand simulation, where they are surrounded by meaningful elements of a culturally authentic setting. Context-based, situated learning means that learners are continually challenged to apply the target language in a variety of authentic contexts. Given the intensive iso-immersion design of the residential Concordia LTC program, participants will be focused on learning from breakfast until bedtime, away from distractions of daily life, and surrounded by a blend of native speakers and instructors who have mastered a high level of language proficiency. The instructor-to-learner ratio is 1:3, providing non-stop opportunities for participants to engage in the language-learning process. A learner-centered approach facilitates a learning community that is supportive, encouraging, motivating, and engaging.

The Concordia Language Training Center has provided over sixty iso-immersions to students from across all services. These iso-immersions have yielded remarkable success in language acquisition as well as building cultural competencies.

Pedagogical Approach

The immersion setting of Concordia College creates a grand simulation exposing learners to the target language in a community-based learning environment that engages participants by ”living” the language and culture.  The iso-immersion setting is reinforced by a 1:3 instructor to student ratio and situational learning based on real life scenarios
