The Network of Connections
Our first highlighted connection is The Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC). Located in Monterey, California, DLIFLC is a component of the Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC). DLIFLC provides resident instruction at the Presidio of Monterey in about two dozen languages. DLIFLC also provides a fairly extensive collection of resources and products on the website related to language in support of international security. On their products page http://www.dliflc.edu/products.html there is an array of beneficial online modules and study materials for a number of languages and cultures. In addition, visitors will find current and back issues of academic journals, some basic online language instruction and collection of dialect and accent audio recordings.
