MONTEREY, Calif. – The Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center welcomed Lt. Gen. David Quantock, the Inspector General of the U.S. Army, to the institute on the Presidio of Monterey, California, May 21.
Quantock is visiting installations in Northern California and is the first inspector general to visit DLIFLC. He received a briefing from Steve Collins, chief of staff of DLIFLC, on the mission and vision of the institute followed by a visit to an Arabic language classroom.
“It’s amazing what you have here,” said Quantock. “I didn’t realize the size of this institution.”
DLIFLC is regarded as one of the finest schools for foreign language instruction in the world. The Institute provides resident instruction in 23 languages to approximately 3,500 military service members, five days a week, seven hours per day, with two to three hours of homework each night. Generally, students spend between 26 and 64 weeks at the Presidio, depending on the difficulty of the language.
