Language Day

Language Day 2021 has been cancelled

Language Day is our opportunity to share the secret we at DLIFLC have all discovered – knowing a foreign language opens windows to the world! We encourage the general public, from communities near and far, to join thousands of people who annually take advantage of this opportunity to visit our world-renowned military language institute during its open house. You will get to see our students perform and enjoy music, dances, food and culture from every corner of the globe.

DLIFLC Language Day event will kick-off at 10:00 am and last until about 3:00 pm. Activities consist of classroom demonstrations, cultural exhibits, outdoor entertainment, and plenty of international food and souvenir vendors.
