Languages and levels: Cohorts are currently available in more than three dozen ILR level and language combinations, ranging from ILR 1+ to 3. For current availability or requests for new Cohorts, contact us.
Skill-building activities: Lessons are supported by up to two dozen learning activities that build listening, speaking, reading, and writing proficiency.
Mission-relevant domains: Cohort lessons are based on recent, authentic sources focused on domains including culture, economy, environment, geography, military, politics, science, security, society, and technology.
Major international news event (MINE) lessons: As news events warrant, occasional MINE lessons are also regularly distributed to Cohort members.
Blend Cohort lessons with live instruction to enhance your skills on the job. Cohort Plus Tutoring includes weekly one-on-one tutoring sessions aligned with that week's Cohort lesson.
Higher-value face time: Completing Cohort lessons before tutoring leads to more productive sessions. Instructors lead communicative, contextual activities that leverage lesson content and build related skills and cultural competencies.
More flexibility, less disruption: Cohort Plus includes approximately two hours of independent study and one hour of face time per week. Learners can complete both components online—no time, place, or device restrictions that impact job performance.
Recommended uses: Cohort Plus tutoring is ideal for on-the-job enhancement, DLPT prep, OPI prep, LET warmups, ISO immersion, and more.
