WHAT WE DO

LANGUAGE TRAINING & IMMERSION...

:: LANGUAGE IMMERSIONS & CULTURAL TRAINING

We offer a variety of language immersion services and each immersion or engagement abroad is uniquely designed and tailor made to our client's goals and objectives.

With over 18 years of experience, we have provided thousands of these type of short-term and long-term immersions in over 130 countries and in 90 languages.

Below are examples of our most popular Government language immersions programs:

ISOLATION IMMERSION PROGRAMS

"Iso-immersion" is an abbreviated, government-wide, term used to describe foreign language training conducted in total isolation from the English language.

The goal of the iso-immersion is to enhance the students learning experience by allowing them to interact in a more realistic environment than they are likely to encounter in the regular classroom.

Our iso-immersion programs can be arranged in the US or overseas. Programs are designed to keep participants interacting exclusively in the target language for the specified period.

OCONUS IMMERSION PROGRAMS

During in-country immersions students attend 20 - 30 hours per week of classroom language and culture study. Students also participate in out-of-class activities and weekly field trips and excursions.

CONUS IMMERSION PROGRAMS

For those students who are unable to travel abroad, we can offer a CONUS immersion stateside. Students attend 20 - 30 hours per week of classroom language and culture study.

TEACHER/HOST IMMERSION PROGRAMS

This is the most intensive language immersion we offer. Perfect for those individuals who do not want a classroom setting, would like tailor made private tuition and enjoy the experience of living with a native host family abroad. Students attend 15 - 30 hours per week of private language and culture study

Learn your chosen language at your own pace, each day live in the language, chat over breakfast, lessons are held in the teachers home followed by social times speaking only the language you are learning with family members. Think of yourself as a guest in the home of your teacher!

CULTURAL TRAINING AWARENESS

Developing global cultural competency is one of the most challenging aspects of working globally.

During our cultural training program, students spend less time in class (usually 10 - 15 hours of private instruction per week) instruction will take place during field trips and in real life situations.

The student will spend and more time discovering the culture, religion, traditions, history, political climate, economics, belief and values of the region and target country.

You will usually have a private, dedicated native guide who will escort you throughout the program. The program can be conducted in the native language or English and designed around your specific requirements and unique interests.
