The involvement of the academics in the complex activities specific to higher military educational process places the act of teaching English among the defining priorities of meeting quality, national and international standards of academic military education. As a defining activity aimed at the enhancement of the teachers’ competencies, teaching English is a priority and decisive value across all the other disciplines which contribute to achieving the quality of higher military education, being, in fact, the central intercultural core that provides substance, consistency and strength to the intercultural dimension of the academic military education. After the accession to NATO, the participation of the Romanian officers in missions abroad has created the need to develop, during academic training, their ability to meet specific standards of the English language. In this regard, identifying and addressing issues aimed at the improvement of teaching of English is considered to be of paramount importance. On the background of this thematic area of theoretical and scientific concerns, our study tackles and develops specific aspects of the influence of the teaching skills on the quality of the content and objectives of English language teaching in a military institution of higher education.
