DA Form 330, Language Proficiency Questionnaire is a form that records the results of foreign language proficiency tests undergone by U.S. Army personnel. The information within the form is used to evaluate foreign language skills and to determine eligibility for positions that require foreign language proficiency.
The latest version of the form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DD Form 330 - was released by the Department of the Army (DA) in May 2008 with the previous editions being obsolete. An up-to-date DA Form 330 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be found through the Army Publishing Directorate website.
The U.S. Army provides a number of jobs that require the soldier to have a fluent knowledge of a foreign language. The Department of Defense (DoD) uses the Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT) to measure the ability to read and listen in a foreign language. Exams are taken annually - normally after an language maintenance course - but can also be taken every six months at will.
A service member proficient in one or more foreign languages can be granted special pay via the Foreign Language Proficiency Bonus (FLPB) - formerly known as the Foreign Language Proficiency Pay. Bonus payments range from $100 to $500 a month, depending on the language or dialect spoken and the documented level of proficiency.
