It would be recalled that NPA had earlier leased the facility out to APM Terminals through LCTL in 2006 for a ten-year concession arrangement which expired in 2016.
This study reports on the availability of less commonly taught languages (LCTLs) in Australian higher education.
We prefer to use 'less commonly taught languages' (LCTLs)--a term commonly used in the United States (e.g.
Firstly, some university programs teaching LCTLs may not immediately come to attention because, as in the case of several Indigenous languages, the subjects are taught outside the university structures within which languages are commonly taught--typically schools of languages and cultures or languages and social sciences.
Furthermore, the service could designate officers proficient in "high-need" LCTL languages with a special identifier on their officer selection brief.

Both of these languages fall into that linguistic grouping commonly referred to as LCTLs. Although the phrase "less commonly taught languages" seems self-explanatory, the concept itself requires some clarification.
A useful service for the field would be the identification and archiving of any LCTL materials that are genuinely task-based, distance courses, or both.
Such materials would be unsuitable for inclusion in distance task-based LCTL courses, just as they are unsuitable for the languages for which they have already been developed.
The original impetus for its development was the need to assess oral proficiency in the Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs).
