From the Paper:

"The Non-Commissioned Officers School of the Hellenic Army comprises 400 students who are aged between the age of 18 and 20 years. These adult students have military and academic training like, for instance, they are well trained in gymnastics and advanced Mathematics. There is therefore dire need for them to learn English Language as a subject to supplement their other training in other fields to make them serve better in various parts of the world. Besides the School of the Hellenic Army having the highest combined pool of adult students, the centre also has learners coming from diverse cultures and ages and it offers other courses besides English Language as a subject."
