NCMA Specific Service Offerings

(Includes Preferred Pricing for NCMA Members)

Familiarization

  • 1-on-1 class
  • 20 Hours 
  • $1,000 including training materials

This program is designed for individuals with no proficiency in the target language. The main objective of this survival course is to enable the student to develop basic and useful skills in the target language through the use of communication in everyday practical situations of a social, logistical, and workplace nature, instead of a structured lesson. The course prepares the student for life or a short trip with survival language training and encourages the student to utilize what they know without the preoccupation of grammatical accuracy.

Refresher

  • 1-on-1 class
  • 40-60 Hours 
  • $2,000 -  $3,000 including training materials

This program is designed to return the student to previous levels of proficiency, to strengthen and enhance overall language abilities, and to prevent skill deterioration.  Similar to the familiarization course, this lesson can be custom designed for listening and reading comprehension, and survival, as well as, special job related topics and skills. Completion of this course can be done on a part-time basis or on-line.

Culture Awareness

  • 1-on-1 or group class
  • 1 day (6 hrs)
  • $1,500

The goal of this program is to provide the student with realistic situations encountered in everyday life, not by way of a textbook learning plan.  Although the course does not involve language learning, it does focus on imparting awareness of cultural characteristics and day-to-day living in the target country. The student is introduced to history, tradition, and customs, which may be unfamiliar to foreigners.  Custom designed, this course offers topics in the following, but not limited to: general introduction to the target country; elements of culture; intercultural dynamics; conflict avoidance; gender (dynamics); customs; art; music; food; ceremonies and rituals; family and kinship; marriage; religion; dress or appearance; values; bias; and language. The class is offered at least once a week.
