     In an effort to cultivate the Armed Forces’ foreign language proficiency and provide officers and soldiers with an access to continuing education, Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages and Army Infantry Training Command signed a strategic alliance on April 18th. In the presence of over 50 managing directors from both sides, Wenzao’s President Shieu-Ming Chou, D.S.N., and Lieutenant General (LTG) Li-Sheng Kuo, Commander of Army Infantry Training Command, signed the alliance to promote academic and continuing educational exchanges between the two schools. The alliance marks the first cooperation between Wenzao and a military unit. It is expected that the partnership between the two schools will create a more diverse learning environment, where both sides will cooperate on a reciprocal basis.

 
     According to President Chou, the strategic alliance between Wenzao and Army Infantry Training Command aims to provide officers and soldiers with a flexible educational choice. In compliance with the off-duty time of officers and soldiers, teachers from Wenzao will go to the Command to teach English and Japanese conversation to help officers and soldiers acquire such certificates as General English Proficiency Test (GEPT), Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), and Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC), to prepare them for their future careers. Courses on other languages, such as French, German, Spanish and Russian, will also be available to prepare officers for advanced studies overseas. As the only university of languages in Taiwan, Wenzao provides master’s degree, bachelor’s degree, associate’s degree, and continuing education programs, providing officers and soldiers with a variety of choices to acquire a formal degree.

 
     In his remarks, Commander Kuo said that the military is transforming from conscription to a volunteer system. To attract more talent to join the military, in addition to the original military courses, the Armed Forces also encourage officers and soldiers to develop professional skills by acquiring relevant certificates. To achieve the goal of improving the overall capacity and to nurture talent, the Armed Forces seek to partner with civil educational institutions and academic agencies to provide officers and soldiers with on-the-job training, life-long learning, certification programs and degree programs.
