CIOR Language Academy
The Interallied Confederation of Reserve Officers (CIOR) is the originator and supervises the courses of official English and French languages obligatory in NATO. The project originated in 2000, when first states of the former Warsaw Pact were included into NATO coalition and it emerged, that the officers from the Eastern Block do not use NATO languages. In 2001 first group of 11 reserve officers from Poland participated in such project in Czech Hradec Kralove. The organizer of this group – Naval Officer Marek Krotowicz tried to adapt this project in Poland and so the year later with the approval of the Rector of Polish Naval Academy Cpt. (N) prof. A. Komorowski and the Prorector for didactics Cpt. (N) prof. A. Felski the first Linguistic Academy started in Polish Naval Academy in Gdynia. The project has been executing by reserve officers in many countries. In seventeen-year-old history it already took place in Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia, Slovenia, Turkey, Estonia, The Czech Republic, Moldavia and Poland. This year`s edition came to Gdynia for the third time. Good organizing of the previous courses resulted this year in unexpected frequency which is the largest in the history. There are over hundred participants from 19 countries not only a NATO members, but also a Partnership for Peace program.
Today the Linguistic Academy started with a greeting from Prorector for education Cpt. (N) Assoc. Prof. Dariusz Bugajski. Then, in the name of the Federation of Polish Reservists and Veterans Associations spoke Col. Cert. Zdzisław Przeszłowski and the last but not least the greeting word gave the Manager of Teaching Committee of CIOR, Col. Stanislas de Magnienville. The participants are facing two weeks of hard work, but considering that the teachers are reserve officers English and French native speakers, the hard work is a real worth. After the course volunteers will have the opportunity to pass STANAG 6001 exams level 2 and 3.

In order to celebrate the National Day of Kuwait, the flags of Kuwait and the Republic of Poland were raised, the community heard national anthems and there was read the occasional order. Words of praise towards the Kuwait cadets directed Rector-Commandant Capt Prof. Tomasz Szubrycht.
On 25th February, Kuwait celebrates its National Day. This is an excellent opportunity to describe the history of this country. Kuwait has been ruled by the AL-SABAH dynasty since the 18th century. The threat of Ottoman invasion in 1899 prompted Amir Mubarak AL-SABAH to seek protection from Britain, ceding foreign and defense responsibility to Britain until 1961, when the country attained its independence. Kuwait was attacked and overrun by Iraq on 2nd August 1990. Following several weeks of aerial bombardment, a US-led UN coalition began a ground assault on 23th February 1991 that liberated Kuwait in four days. Kuwait spent more than $5 billion to repair oil infrastructure damaged during 1990-91. The AL-SABAH family returned to power in 1991 and established one of the most independent legislatures in the Arab World.
Today our Polish Naval Academy in Gdynia had possibility to celebrate for the second time in the history, the National Day of Kuwait. It was celebrated in a special way at the Polish Naval Academy in Gdynia, as 15 cadets of the second year continue their military studies and 37 cadets from Kuwait have started their studies on the first year. Despite many differences between our countries, we surely share the love for the sea and country.
