Critical needs language test scheduled

June 30, 2011

I just received my scheduling email for Arabic from the State Department. I have not yet received my pass notification for the FSOT, but I am taking this as a pretty good sign. I have had the same languages on past year’s applications, but never been scheduled to test. I’m fairly confident that means I passed the FSOT this year. A passing language test is valid for 5 years with State. I really wish I could have taken it last year. I’ve been too busy with travel and work this year to put the effort into Arabic, and I’m pretty rusty, but I believe I can pass still. I’ll update this post once I have confirmation of the actual FSOT results. Good luck to all waiting to get the results…
