Task One of the STANAG 6001 speaking exam is a BRIEFING.
The briefing topics are all connected with military issues.
The structure of the task is always the same.
- problem to be solved
- possible solutions
Your task is to present two solutions to the problem, describe their advantages and disadvantages, recommend one and justify your choice.

Today, I would like to focus on the types of briefing topics. They can be divided into a few following categories:
Let me give you a few examples:
There is a language course organised at the training centre. Your unit can send one soldier to attend this course. You have been tasked with giving a briefing presenting two possible candidates to your CO (Commanding Officer). Describe their strengths and weaknesses, recommend one of them and justify your choice.
– Candidate A
– Candidate B
You are responsible for logistics in your unit. The commander of your unit has tasked you with organising transport for him and his staff during a trip abroad. You have been tasked with giving a briefing on two possible means of transport, describing their advantages and disadvantages. Recommend one of them and justify your choice.
-scheduled civilian flight
The Internet system of your base has been broken into. You have been tasked with delivering a briefing discussing two possible ways of preventing such attacks in the future, describing their advantages and disadvantages. Recommend one of them and justify your choice.
– training the personnel in the field of cyber security
– implementing new cyber security policy
Some extra physical training must be organised for your soldiers. You have been tasked with delivering a briefing on two possible options for the training, describing their advantages and disadvantages. Recommend one of them and
justify your choice.
The topics come from the textbook https://www.stanagexpert.com/stanag-expert-textbooks/ and have been constructed on the basis of the briefing topic format and examples published by the the Polish Armed Forces School of Languages (PAFSL) (http://wsnjo.wp.mil.pl) where you can also find more original past papers and topics.
Now, it’s time to get down to work and prepare your briefing!
