About Aspire's DLPT
The Defense Language Proficiency Test was developed and is administered by the Defense Language Institute. While the original purpose was for military training needs, the test is used widely throughout the federal government to determine the language proficiencies and training needs for its staff.
Test takers can be active duty military personnel or National Guard or Reservists, US State Department personnel or intelligence analysts, government or government contracting personnel. Good scores open career paths and higher pay through the “Foreign Language Proficiency Bonus” program.
The tests are scaled to the Interagency Round Table proficiency levels. https://www.govtilr.org/Skills/ILRscale1.htm
Aspire’s language instructors have successfully prepared over 10,000 students in the military and in civilian government capacities for these tests. They have taught students from levels from 1 to 4. Students who apply themselves can raise their scores ½ and full points.
