Why Military English? The resolution of international conflicts and subsequent peacekeeping duties require organisations such as the United Nations and NATO as well as individual nations to supply military support and personnel. Army, navy and air forces from many nations need to work together effectively, using English as the lingua franca.
Based on over 10 years’ experience of working with the military worldwide, Communicaid’s Military English courses focus specifically on meeting the language and communication needs of military personnel engaged on international cooperation assignments.
Communicaid’s Military English course will provide you with:
- Greater confidence in your ability to convey your message in English
Key military English terminology and jargon
- Broader vocabulary for discussing military and peacekeeping issues
- Greater awareness and more effective use of diplomatic language
