A world of words...
Since the end of the Second World War and fall of the 'Iron Curtain', the role of many of the world's military and civil defense forces have dramatically altered in their personnel structure and obligations to global security. Subsequently, many nations under the conventions of NATO and the UN are now engaged in conflict resolution and peacekeeping duties in various areas of the world.
From NATO to the United Nations, Military English matters...
In today's age, the army, navy and air forces of the many of the world's nations work together as one, many operating under the banner of NATO or the United Nations. English is now commonly accepted as the standard language of communication for all as agreed in NATO's STANAG 6001 system of language levels, 0 -6.
Our 'English for Military and Civil Defense' programme is designed to be as flexible or as ridged as it is needed to be. We have designed this programme to meet the needs of military personnel engaged in all operations, including peacekeeping, humanitarian crisis relief and training exercises.
No two cultures are exactly the same...
the correct use of the English language and tone are the common links that can bridge this gap.
An ETL Military English Language Course can offer you:
- A clearer and more confident ability to give your message, order or input in clear English
- Up-to-date key military English terminology and jargon focusing on pronunciation and meanings
- A broader vocabulary for discussing military and peacekeeping duties
- A clearer understanding and more effective use of diplomatic language, including: local customs, cultures and religious norms and conventions. (The client's specific needs could/will determine the exact training requirements and outcomes)
Our Strategic Military English Language & Cultural Training programmes are specialist English courses aimed at military personnel, government employees or international agency staff who are required to work in international teams using English as the common language. The SMELCT programme is open to all who operate in these fields. The programme is not exclusively designed for military personnel, though we do offer bespoke programmes at the request of our clients for closed one to one or group programmes.
