i get to look forward to 6 more months of Special Operations Language Training (SOLT). started yesterday. my target language= russian. i have zero experience with this language, but after today ive already learned the alphabet and a few phrases. my goal= pass the DLPT with a 2/2 so as to get paid. how realistic is this? i thinnk i stand a fair shot. (we were told only 15% of people get paid for russian coming out of SOLT) and mainly thats because its half the training time as the russian basic course at DLI.(47 weeks there as compared to our 24 weeks) but yea.... thats my update. any one else language qualified? speak a second language WELL?
