Learn a language

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Is it possible to learn a language while in the navy?
  2. Yes.........................

  3. Mais oui :)
  4. I got an A* in 'Bad'.
  5. Yes. If you are interested in learning a language just for yourself, the Education Centres on bases can help with CDs etc.

    There is also an arrangement with the OU - the OU offers starter courses in various languages:

    The Royal Navy, the OU and you | Career development defence community: The Open University

    Obviously, you will need to fit in personal study with your job.

    If you should need to acquire language skills for operational reasons, this will be arranged for you on an ad hoc basis; see here for an example - Royal Marines learning Pashto:

    BBC - Pashto lessons for Royal Marines at Norton Manor Camp
  6. Spoilsport Soleil.

    Edited to add: maybe starting with English would be a good idea and realising 'navy', in the context used, is a proper noun and therefore starts with a capital letter.

    I'm with F.O.S.T and I'm here to help :wave:
