Docs Duty:CMAST Class, again...

...Doc Duty's title
Questions for Doc:

  1. What does the above title mean and insinuate?
  2. I see there are about 13 trainees pictured. About how many do you train each cycle? Or did I already ask you that??
  3. Do they understand our language or do you use an interpreter?

That title insinuates the 50th or so repetition of the same class because while these guys aren't mentally handicapped, they are illiterate and most of them need 3 or 4 reps of the same thing to finally get it. you only see about 13, our usual load is 30-40. we have to use an interp as unlike the us where english is the #1 language, here 2 different languages are widely spoken. Dari and Pashto. This depends on the location of where they're from which one they speak. our interps in order to be hired ahve to speak both fluently.

That's interesting. I've never heard of those two, but that doesn't mean much!

I bet it's harder training and talking, waiting for the interpreter to catch up, huh?
