This page is designed to provide you with the most useful links. Whenever you want to sign up for the STANAG 6001 exam, military English course or just want to find additional English materials, you can find proper links and additional information here, on this page.

Since I’m Polish I will focus on the English exams in Poland, putting here information valid for the Poles willing to take military exams in English in my country. All the links and information I divided into subject categories to let you find right information more easily.

    Thank you for a professional blog.
    Could you recommend any sourse where I could get hold of past papers for STANAG 3 and 4?
    I urgently need some papers for my student.
    Thank you!

    • Thanks for a credit.
      The best Polish site for the past papers is the homepage of The Polish Armed Forces School of Languages (PAFSL), where the Central Examination Board for Foreign Languages of the Ministry of National Defense (CEBFL) publishes all materials available. You can find at: http://www.wsnjo.wp.mil.pl/pl/77.html Unfortunately, the English version of the website do not link to those resources. You must browse it in Polish. It’s pretty intuitive so you should find what you are interested in. Guessing from your e-mail address you are Polish (me too :-) ) so you will get it easily.
      My site contains their tests as well, but adjusted to the Internet users. I add my own papers as well. In case you need anything else I can comply with the specific request and work on it.
      Regards and stay connected.

    Thank you very much for your help. :) I`ve already checked the source. Though you might have some more.
    Thank you.

    • You are right that we have some more tests – both already used during exams and the new ones, never used before. We design our own tests according to STANAG6001 principles. The problem is with the time necessary for publishing them. That’s why we can respond to any specific requests and prioritize particular levels or skills in our publishing schedule. You can check the full list of tests available in a tab “TESTS-TESTY” They are organized according to the level of proficiency and the skills tested.
