The language learning is today a great fight that the armies are carrying out in Africa in general and in Congo-Brazzaville in particular to comply with the requirements of globalization. Indeed, since the beginning of the restructuring of the public force (Army, Gendarmerie and Police) as well as the enhancement of the concept of collective security at the continental level, its presence in peacekeeping operations is very clear. This justifies the need to introduce into the national defense training programs, the learning of international languages in addition to French. The aim is to create a viable communication space for contingents operating in the region, and above all to encourage mobility within the Community area. That is why, in order to add value to the foreign languages that today constitute a vector of citizenship and identity, the various authorities in charge of defense issues, both at continental and national level, have developed a real human resources training policy that takes into account language needs in order to better secure the territories in danger.
