One Comment on “Seeking: Cryptologic Language Instructor – French/Maghreb (Camp Lejeune, NC), ISD experience”

  1. Greetings.

    Kindly pulse your customer for these initial details and let me know:

    [1] What type language training is involved:

    A. Basic acquisition language training (BALT) – aka “start from scratch” training to build a person’s basic foundation and communicative ability in the target language?
    B. Refresher / sustainment / maintenance of existing skills in the designated language?
    C. Enhancement / extension / special purpose / topics / applications (including vocabularies)?
    D. Transition from one language to another, or between major dialects within one language?

    Do the training materials exist, or do those need to be defined, developed and produced before the start of training?

    Ref “Maghrebi” stipulation – surmise that reference is to local dialects of Arabic prevalent in North Africa (also to Sub-Saharan Africa?)

    Those local dialects of Arabic categorized under the generic label of “Maghrebi” are actually distinctive by country and also between each country’s coastal populations and those in the interior regions. Major factor of their differences is influence and inclusion of terms of indigenous non-Arabic languages, such as Amazight, Tamasheq, Tamazight, etc.

    Accordingly, does your customer want training for functional skills in the range of Arabic sub-dialects common in Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Chad, Sudan or coastal Egypt? (Several of those sub-dialects overlap across borders, such as eastern Tunisia and western coastal Libya, eastern Libya across western coastal Egypt.)

    Do the employment packages for these instructor / trainer / SME positions include relocation assistance for moving to those areas near MCB Camp Lejeune, NC?

    With that basic information in hand, I can refer you onward – as a professional courtesy to all parties — to some US Citizen-status bilinguals with native fluencies in most of those languages and also French (due to their formal education and professional backgrounds).

    Hope this helps you find and engage the bilingual talent you need for your USMC customer at MCB Camp Lejeune. Today is Friday, 17 October 2014.
