The Liberian Ministry of National Defense dedicated the first-ever Armed Forces of Liberia English Language Center in Monrovia, Liberia Jan. 8, 2018.

The project is a collaboration between the Liberian MOD and the U.S. Department of Defense’s Office of Security Cooperation at the U.S. Embassy Monrovia, Liberia.

The facility is designed to provide English language training to Armed Forces of Liberia Soldiers and Ministry civilians to prepare them for overseas training and other operational requirements. It includes the renovation of the Language Center, purchase of English curriculum materials, and the training of AFL language instructors. 

The center will prepare soldiers to pass the English Comprehension Level (ECL) exam which is needed to attend professional military education and other U.S.-based training.

The OSC supports the development of the Armed Forces of Liberia through four program areas: strengthening defense institutions; professional development; medical readiness; and maritime security.  In each area, the OSC provides leadership, resource management, and professional military education to civilians, officers, and non-commissioned officers within the Ministry of Defense and the Armed Forces of Liberia.
