Tactical Iraqi Language Training

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. Guys,

    Some of you may have heard of the US interactive computer programme for teaching troops the Iraqi language in a tactical setting. If not have a look here:

    www.tacticallanguage.com

    As a reservist I expect to do a tour in the sandpit in 2008 and thought that this would be a good way of getting a heads up on the lingo. You can see from the site that US personnel have free access to download the programme, but we don't.

    I contacted the company and asked if they would allow British forces personnel access. They replied that they only release a version of the programme for international customers and the price is $1200... but they are doing a special offer at the moment until the end of Aug for $500.

    Now whilst I am not adverse to using my own cash to make tours a bit easier, I am not going to part with this amount.

    Does anyone know where you could access the programme? Perhaps through one of the US forums etc?
