LTC Description:

The University of Utah's LTC is housed in the Second Language Teaching and Research Center (L2TReC). We offer advanced language programs to meet the needs of our DoD partner, the Utah Cryptologic Team, but all DoD military and civilian employees are welcome to participate in these courses. The program goals are to maintain and/or advance the linguists' level of language proficiency measured via pre- and post-assessment tests. Instruction is delivered either in a blended format that combines face-to-face instruction and online work, or fully online to total the 120 hours needed to meet the requirements for a significant language-training event. The program offers an individual program add-on of 30 hours to allow linguists to meet the 150 hour requirement for a DLPT test exception.

The UU Language Training Center (LTC) Program has access to a wide range of experienced, academically rigorous and culturally sensitive instructors that appropriately challenge and advance the linguistic skills of DoD linguists.  This cadre of instructors is familiar with the military linguist population and has developed successful curricula to meet the needs of military linguists. Most of the UU LTC courses are team taught, which exposes linguists to different native accents and areas of expertise.

Please note that most of the courses listed below are offered every year. However, a number of them - English, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese - may be offered once every two to three years.

Pedagogical Approach

At UU, a combination of face-to-face and online components provide the minimum 120 hours of annual language instruction required for annual language maintenance at the 2/2 and above level.  The curriculum follows a proficiency-based model using a wide range of authentic materials including social, cultural, political, economic, geographic, scientific, and military themes.  Traditional print and online materials are also incorporated into classes.
