Working with the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center

Article photo The Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) uses accelerated programs to train military personnel from all branches of service to become proficient in specific foreign languages. DLIFLC provides resident instruction in two dozen languages with in-classroom training five days a week, seven hours a day, as well as two to three hours of homework each night.

Given the rigorous schedule, DLIFLC students face a unique set of stressors while they complete their condensed language acquisition programs.

MRD-W was requested by Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC) leadership to conduct an assessment at DLIFLC to benchmark the behavioral health and well-being of the student population.

The initial assessment has been completed, and the results and recommendations have been presented to DLIFLC and MAMC leadership.

A second, cross-service assessment is being planned for spring 2017.
