Language Training for SpousesLanguage training is available for spouses where authorized and resourced.
Full-time training is conducted Monday through Friday, four to six hours per day depending on facility and class size. This may be in the same class as the sponsor (if academically compatible) or in a separate class.
Part-time training consists of six to 18 hours of training per week. While days and hours may vary from student to student, the training must be done on a fixed weekly schedule.
Training is done only during duty hours and at the training facility.
Training must be authorized by the Joint Military Attaché School Training Management Office. Service members must complete the required Agency form and submit as directed. Once spouse training is authorized, DLI can work with sponsor and spouse on the details.
Spouse training may be available, if authorized by Service quota managers (case-by-case basis depending on the circumstances of the sponsor’s enrollment). For spouses of non-Defense Attaché Service students, approval depends on availability of space, time, and resources and it will generally require the support and authorization of the sponsor’s Service. Call the DLI Washington Office training administrator (703-325-0810/DSN 221) for details.
