Since 1954, the Defense Language Institute English Language Center (DLIELC) has performed its mission to support the policies and objectives of the US Government and the US Department of Defense (DoD). DLIELC started as the US Air Force Language School; its primary mission was to teach English to allied pilot candidates. In 1966, its mission expanded to include other career fields and at the same time moved under the DoD. The US Army was designated as the executive agent at that time. DLIELC assumed its present form in 1976 when the US Air Force became the executive agent. The resident campus, located at JBSA-Lackland, Texas, includes headquarters and academics facilities, a learning resource center, library, dining hall, officer/enlisted quarters, student administration building and a conference center. Small classrooms, equipped with the latest in training technology, are specifically designed to support student- centered instruction. In addition, the DLIELC curriculum meets the diverse needs of the adult military population with courses that address the specific language requirements of the students’ career fields. This guide, published annually, is a reference for planning, scheduling and conducting English language training in support of the Security Cooperation Training Program.
