Well, I managed to pass my DLPT!

Just so you know, it CAN be done even without language refresher training!  It was a long day at the testing center but I left with a respectable 2/2.  It isn't the 3/3 I used to get, but considering I had no chance to refresh prior to testing, I'm quite happy!

  1. Thank you so much! I'm so sorry I didn't respond earlier, but I have been so darn busy with a new platoon. I now have 62 Soldiers in my platoon.

    1. SFC J, what are your advices to a ssg/p that will be reclassing into 35P. Ive heard different sides regarding my situation. How long would you think it would take to get up to speed to perform duties of a sfc 35P.

  2. Hard to say, it's always difficult to adjust that far into the game. My suggestions to you are find someone who has done the job and have them coach (not mentor obviously since you will outrank them) and have them show you the ropes. Plus I'd ask the instructors at AIT to challenge you more than they usually would so you can prepare for the extra responsibility. Also use them to teach you about the job as well.

  3. Hey there,

    Would you recommend the GLOSS Level 2 or 2+ modules as good ways to prepare for the DLPT?
