Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. Anyone got a copy i could ponce, if not any better alternatives? Cheers muchly
  2. Apply through Defence Learning Portal or your AEC/Learning centre, I'm doing it now and it's a very good course plus doesn't cost a penny.
  3. How easy is it? Its just that i've got the attention span of a.......ooh look a pretty birdy! Whats on for NAAFI break?
  4. Best to do it in your room on your own as it's interactive, ie it tells you how to say something then you repeat it until you get the pronunciation correct. It's really good give it a try, as I said it's free have you seen how much this course is to buy?
  5. Get a posting to BFG, go down the local pub of an evening - drink copious amounts of Pils and strange sticky liquors in very small glasses. Chat to barmaid, locals, the pub dog, the wall etc etc.

    Continue the motion for a couple of months and then try chatting up one of the local females (not the camp bike as she speaks better English than you) if you are desperate enough for a shag then you will find your command of the lingo gets much better as time goes by.

    Down side of course is that you might end up married to one of them!
  6. I learnt basic German from watching Porn!
  7. Learnt German in training, subsequently spent 12 years on and off in the Vaterland, everytime i tried me best jarmun, every fecker spoke english!! Now i can just get by, and thats only if i'm rinsed
