You've answered your own question, insomuch it's operation specific. No real need for Pashto at the moment, so as @Advocado points out, why would the Corps send someone away on a course for something they will not use. My understanding is that there are some exchange postings going on, so may well be a requirement there, but as most of the world speaks English, it's not a real priority.Thanks for your reply.
Do you mean that as an officer there isn’t much opportunity to learn a language in general or was your reply specific to learning Pashto? I understand that any language learned would be operation specific, and so, doesn’t give much room for choice, but saying that I would definitely be motivated to learn a language.
Nothing to stop you learning one in your own time though. Big shout went out for Spanish speakers during the Falklands war in 1982.
