What is a Level Up Village Cohort?

Level Up Village has launched Global Connections, a brand-new and easy-to-use platform with engaging, collaborative courses. For this February and March, Level Up Village will pair the first 200 registered teachers and their classrooms with teachers and classrooms in another country across two Cohorts. These two Cohorts of paired classrooms, for students ages 12-18, will take part in 4- to 8-week global exchanges with brand new course content to choose from. The exchanges will be in Spanish and English. Guided by our leveled Languages & Cultures course content and student-friendly technology, students will make memorable connections with global peers and deepen their understanding of other cultures.
