You have answered the call to serve our country and protect our freedom.
Whether you are a combat soldier or an intelligence officer, your ability to understand and speak regional languages can save your life and be the key to winning the war. Moreover, your ability to speak languages the enemy can’t understand is of equal importance. To illustrate this point, it is worthwhile to note that Navajo Indian soldiers, Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Peleliu and Iwo Jima, known as the “code talkers,” took part in every assault the U.S. Marines conducted in the Pacific from 1942 to 1945.
They served in all six Marine divisions, Marine Raider battalions and Marine parachute units, transmitting messages by telephone and radio in their native language -- a code that the enemy was never able to decipher.
For the soldier of highest rank, it is not enough that you are proficient in any one of the region’s languages. You must know the language like the natives with its slang, rapid articulation and regional dialects.
The subject is vast and requires a great many soldiers to specialize and gain expertise in very obscure dialects. Notwithstanding the great progress our United States military has made post 9/11, the task of world language acquisition is enormous. In contrast, qualitative programs are few and the time is at hand.
World Language Exchange isn’t here to compete with the military’s fine language program, but to work alongside in shouldering the responsibility. The 21st Century must see a new kind of soldier. When our young men and women are deployed in the troubled spots of the world, they must be armed not only with the best ammunition, but the best cognition as well. World Language Exchange is prepared to serve our great country the United States of America in making sure she has the best and most sophisticated military on the planet! Help us help you serve.
