Abstract : Changes in worldwide strategic relationships since 9/11 and lessons learned from Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and New Dawn demonstrate the importance of Navy personnel being able to communicate in foreign languages and to comprehend foreign cultures. The Center for Information Dominance s Center for Language, Regional Expertise, and Culture (CLREC) plays a central role in training Department of the Navy personnel in the language skills and cultural knowledge required to effectively carry out their missions. CLREC provides predeployment cultural orientation training in a variety of forms, such as (1) group instruction facilitated by Mobile Training Teams, (2) semiautomated group presentations facilitated by a member of the command being trained, (3) individual instruction using automated and nonautomated presentations, and (4) one-on-one language tutoring for flag officers who will soon take an assignment in which linguistic training would be beneficial.
