occifer languages?

Discussion in 'Int Corps' started by ooh_la_la, May 10, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. Do they speak a different language?..

    Good morning gentlemen,

    Could anybody here tell me if officers in the Corps have the same opportunities for learning foreign languages as an OPMI?

    Also, can officers specialise in areas such as HUMINT in the same way as an OPMI?

    Finally, will I be ridiculed for bringing my hair straighteners on operation?

    Muchas gracias.
  2. Of course not-standards must be maintained
  3. In answer to your questions;

    1. Yes.

    2. Yes.

    3. Yes.

  4. ooh

    Contrary to DigitalGeek's response, occifers in the Int Corps do not have the same opportunity to learn a foreign language, as nearly all of them have to master English first, which occupies nearly all of their careers...

    HUMINT - we could tell you, but then we'd have to bore you to death with quite how amazing it is... zzzzzzzzz

    As for the hair straighteners - fine - but you'll also need a really long extension lead (if they're electrical) and lots of those hazard anti-trip Elf & Safety cable tidies for ops.

    Hope this helps.
  5. You owe me a new DII monitor! :lol:
  6. What's an occifer?
  7. A small feline usually found in the jungle land...looks a bit like a small leopard.
  8. Actually, I am confused there. That's an omlette.

    An occifer is like an orrifice, only it gapes more.
  9. And what exactly would the only person in NATO with less hair than me know about straighteners?

    I agree with the rest of it.
  10. *Ocelot maybe?
  11. Oscillate?
  12. No that's a month.
  13. Ah. Right you are. I must have meant OCR.
  14. Typical Rupert! Its Oct.
