Strategic language training: In support of the ACFLS and future ALRECS, U.S.
The ACFLS provides a holistic strategy for present and future culture and foreign language education and training programs needed to close the gap in capabilities.
This panel is made up of ACFL and JIIM subject matter experts from TRADOC schools, centers, and colleges.
* Ensuring that ACFL learning outcomes are progressive and sequential along each continuum.
* Monitoring alignment of PME courses' terminal learning objectives with the ACFL learning outcomes endorsed by the ALCC.
Coordination of the ACFLS implementation is being accomplished through the Army Learning Coordination Council's (ALCC) three-tier process.
USAWC will assist CAC by guiding development of this approach across the ACFL Enterprise to support training of cultural competence and the development of cultural abilities.
The ACFLS goal is to establish a baseline of culture and foreign language capabilities for all leaders and Soldiers to support the accomplishment of unit missions.
Time available and specific course length for students attending FA and ADA initial military training (IMT) and follow-on leader development PME courses are the principal constraints the faculty must contend with in order to meet the ACFLS desired outcome.
We must leverage existing cultural training, language, civilian academic partnerships and virtual gaming solutions to support USAFAS and USAADAS ACFLS learning objectives.
As we determine how to best implement the ACFLS, we will use the current leader development strategy that serves as a base for our existing instruction within the school and in the growth of our leaders.
