New year. New test scores.CL-150 refresher course for dlpt opi prep

If you or your linguists need to prep for a DLPT or OPI this year, go into your test with confidence after a virtual Refresher Course.

Mix CL-150 materials with a live instructor who will help you work on:

  • Analyzing complex texts (summarizing, inferring, identifying opinion, etc.)
  • Building comfort with listening-specific difficulty drivers (fast speech, reduced forms, background noise, etc.)
  • Familiarizing yourself with and speaking about events and topics relevant to US Government domains (politics, security, economy, etc.)

Here’s what recent students are saying:

USG Linguist, Mandarin Chinese

  • Course format: 3-week full-time course
  • Goal: ILR 2/2/2
  • Result: ILR 3/2/2+

“I would recommend this course 100%. I was very prepared for the speaking test part of the test. All topics [on the test] were covered in class, so I felt very comfortable. The reading was difficult but I am very satisfied with my scores.”

USG Linguist, Russian

  • Course format: 2-week full-time course
  • Goal: ILR 3/3/3
  • Result: ILR 4/3+/3+

“[My instructor] made sure that we looked at a variety of different materials to make sure that I was exposed to various speeds and types of speech (more informal vs formal news). I think the speaking practice especially helped me with my test.”

Air Force Linguist, Mandarin Chinese

  • Course format: 80-hour part time course
  • Goal: ILR 2+/2+
  • Result: ILR 2+/2+

“A wonderful language training opportunity! It was very good training and [my instructor] did a great job! I took my DLPT and got a 2+/2+. I really felt like I was getting close to that 3!”
