Department of Defense


The Department of Defense (DoD) is charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the United States armed forces. The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.

The Department of Defense is America's oldest and largest government agency -tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times. Today, the Department is not only in charge of the military, but it also employs a civilian force of thousands. With over 1.4 million men and women on active duty, and 718,000 civilian personnel, DoD is the nation's largest employer. Another 1.1 million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces. More than 2 million military retirees and their family members receive benefits.

Perhaps you are working for the DoD or interested in working for the DoD. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DoD.

Do you mean the Defense Language Institute?  Or do you mean this website: ">http://jlu.wbtrain.com/SUMTOTAL/JLU2.0/HOME/index.asp
?  The former is fast paced but if you can keep up, you end up fluent in the target language.  And even if you can't keep up, you will have a basic understanding of it!
 
The website appears to be okay...can't vouch for the quality of the courses there though.

JLU = free on-line courses, here is link: http://jlu.wbtrain.com/sumtotal/jlu2.0/HOME/index.asp

 

Defense Language Institute (DLI) provides formal language resident courses to official users; US Army, US Air Force, US Navy, and such. Language courses run from short (45-90 days) to total immersion courses lasting up to a year or more.  

 

DLI is located on grounds of Presidio (Spanish Fort) of Monterey California. Monterey was the first capital of California and cost of living is very high.
