Language and Cultural Training

Yorktown Systems Group provides and maintains culturally-astute and regionally-attuned language-enabled Service Members and diplomats to meet customer language and cultural training requirements. We provide instruction and training from basic or survival level proficiency through professional level proficiency. We provide a range from familiarization courses of a few days to initial acquisition courses of 12 to 29 weeks. We provide instruction in multiple locations and environments. These include standard classrooms, advanced distributed learning in a target region (Live Environment Training), or in a simulated target region (Iso-Immersion) with live role players.

Yorktown Language and Cultural Learning professionals provide curriculum design, training content development, language and cultural instruction, and language testing services. Our instructors teach students in the instructors’ native languages, or languages in which the instructor has near-native proficiency. We conduct training and testing examinations in 70 different languages. We develop language and culture training materials in a variety of formats.

Training types include initial acquisition training, sustainment/enhancement training, regional expertise and culture instruction, situational training exercises, isolated immersion exercises, live environment training, mobile live environment training, and survival/familiarization/pre-deployment language and cultural training.
