Welcome message from the Director and Chairman, Board of Examiners, School of Foreign Languages

I am pleased to welcome you to the website of the School of Foreign Languages (SFL), Ministry of Defence, Government of India.

Ever since its foundation in 1948, the School of Foreign Languages (SFL) has been progressively growing both in its significance and elegance. The SFL has maintained an unimpeachable track record in imparting foreign language training to military as well as civilian personnel. Many former students of the School today occupy high posts in the Defence Services and other central ministries.

SFL was set up by the Ministry of Defence, Government of India, and during the past sixty two years has made noteworthy contributions towards imparting the highest level of foreign language training to personnel of Indian Armed Forces and other government departments.

It has been the endeavor of the School of Foreign Languages to achieve its mission by reinforcing and continuing the foreign language training through imaginative teaching methodology, research and learning and by integrating with various other defence educational institutes. The course curriculum offered at SFL reflects the latest foreign language teaching methodology.

At SFL, we have been constantly making efforts to make sure that the curriculum of various foreign languages is updated regularly so as to replicate the ever-changing teaching styles. The teaching program is appraised in consultation with the renowned foreign language experts who are the members of the Board of Examiners. Besides, the syllabus is also internally reviewed by the faculty from time to time. We regularly invite the external faculty from the eminent foreign language institutes for giving the students a broader exposure.

I take pride in writing that SFL is considered as one of the best foreign language institutes of the country. School of Foreign Language is the only Institute of its kind in the country which conducts Interpretership Courses in various foreign languages. The School has set highest standards in teaching foreign languages.

We make every effort to scale new heights by producing brilliant students who have brought laurels both to the country and the School. It is this holistic approach that has contributed towards unremitting growth of the School of Foreign Languages. Today, SFL symbolizes excellence in foreign language training.

The SFL’s website has been created primarily to acquaint you with this unique Inter-services institute. This website would tell not only about the history, faculty and administration of SFL but also the various courses being run by us.

I  wish you all the success.
