The Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) is looking for active-duty service members and U.S. Government civilians proficient in Polish and English to participate in a study, July 22 – 26.

Individuals with professional working proficiency (Interagency Language Roundtable Level 3) selected for the study can help to set listening and reading comprehension standards for the Polish Defense Language Proficiency Test 5.

Most federal government agencies rely on the Defense Language Proficiency Test and the Oral Proficiency Interview to test the language ability of Department of Defense personnel worldwide.

The DLIFLC updates the proficiency tests every 10 to 15 years. This study will help to establish passing scores for the multiple-choice format Polish proficiency test.

DLIFLC will pay authorized temporary duty travel and lodging expenses for study participants. Additional information regarding the study, which is slated to take place at a venue near Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, will be available after details are finalized.

Officials will select up to 15 panel members for the study and will accept reservations on a first-come, first-served basis. For additional information, contact Ms. Jungeun Youn at or visit
