Defense Critical Language and Culture Program

The Defense Critical Language and Culture Program is one of the top language and culture training centers for our military in the country.  We pride ourselves in our ability to not only train our military in the defense languages, but how we also include lessons in culture training. Our courses meet any DoD defined critical language need.
Our instructors bring their “in-county” experience with their lessons, and many of our courses include college credit. We offer our lessons through a wide range of platforms, including Polycom, VTC, Vidyo, in-residence, mobile training teams, and blended options- all tailored to your unit’s needs.




A program contracted by the Department of Defense at the University of Montana has emerged as one of the top programs of its kind in the country, immersing U.S. troops and diplomats in critical languages and cultures where American interests are at stake.(

Korean ISO May 2014

Army and Air Force ROTC Cadets, from college campuses throughout the United States, arrive at the National Bison Range to begin their Isolated-Immersion exercise in Korean language and culture. The Cadets, participants in Project Global Officer, were awarded a full-ride scholarship to study at the University of Montana for two-weeks followed by an eight-week study abroad program with Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. During the iso-immersion exercise the Cadets communicated exclusively in Korean as they viewed wildlife, hiked a mountain trail, participated in taekwondo exercises, played Korean musical instruments, learned a Korean board game, conducted word exercises, discussed Korean social issues and prepared food for a Korean BBQ.
