As military personnel increasingly come into contact with local forces and civilians, often in situations where no interpreters are available, the need to communicate in the local language is more important than ever. Being able to give instructions, explain a situation or provide support in another language can not only prevent misunderstanding and lost time, but in some cases even save lives.
Our cadre of 1,400 trainers cover more than 76 languages and are able to support all current and anticipated operations around the world. Our ability to deliver capability driven and Mission, Theatre and AO specific language training to all competency levels makes us unique. We are world leaders in providing Pashto and Dari language training through our extensive team of 25 Afghan nationals and experts in training design.
Using a highly interactive scenario based approach to learning and the first ever developed military and cultural dictionaries, our language training prepares all military personnel for theatre duties, no matter their role or AO. Communicaid’s operational language training helps military personnel to absorb AO specific knowledge and vocabulary more quickly, giving them the confidence and skills they need to communicate in their theatre of operation.
