NATO Stanag Language Proficiency Levels for Joint Missions and Its Implementations at a State Organization
Solak, Ekrem
Online Submission, Journal of Defense Sciences v12 n1 p71-90 May 2013
Turkish Armed Forces have been participating in joint missions together with other nations for decades. Since English is the medium of instruction in these missions, participating members should have NATO Standards in terms of language proficiency levels in four skills. Therefore, this study aims to specify personnel's views and their language proficiency levels in terms of NATO Stanag Level 3 objectives. Subjects are the personnel (n = 30) attending English courses at a state organization. NATO Stanag Level 3 questionnaire and NATO Stanag 6001 Level 3 exam were administered to them at the end of the English course. Findings prove that subjects need improvement in speaking and writing skills though they consider themselves comparatively better in reading and listening skills. As a result, it is suggested that four language skills should be taken into consideration in evaluation and the current materials should be supported by some auxiliary documents to meet professional needs.
