Language and culture training: opportunities exist to improve visibility and sustainment of knowledge and skills in Army and Marine Corps general purpose forces : report to congressional committees. by U.S. Government Accountability Office

"The Department of Defense (DOD) has emphasized the importance of developing language skills and knowledge of foreign cultures to meet current and future needs and is investing millions of dollars to provide language and culture predeployment training to its general purpose forces.
DOD has also noted that such training should be viewed as a long-term investment and that training and personnel systems should better account for the knowledge and skills of service members acquired through training to help manage its forces. The committee report accompanying a proposed bill for the National Defense
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011
(H.R. 5136) directed GAO to review language and culture training for Army and Marine Corps general purpose forces. For this report, GAO evaluated the extent to which these services (1)
captured information in training and personnel systems on the completion of language and culture predeployment training and proficiency gained from training and (2) developed plans to sustain language skills acquired through predeployment training. GAO
analyzed service documents and interviewed cognizant officials.
