There are two Language Training Supervisor opportunities in two of the Divisions within the Language School, one in the Romance Languages Division (ROM), and one in the Slavic, Pashto, and Persian Languages Division (SPP). The School of Language Studies, Foreign Service Institute (FSI/SLS) is located in Arlington, Virginia. The School of Language Studies consists of approximately 650 Language and Culture Instructors and supervisory-level personnel and provides training and testing services amounting to more than 1,000,000 student hours annually in 70 languages, to more than 40 agencies in addition to the Department of State. These two Language Divisions are among those responsible for the conducting of intensive language and cultural training programs. These programs vary in length and may be as much as 44 weeks at FSI in the U.S., followed by an additional 44 weeks at an overseas school for the most difficult languages. The length of training depends on the language proficiency requirements of the employees and family members of DoS and other government agencies who are assigned to embassies and consulates abroad.
