Seasoned means experienced. I don't know how someone that's seasoned could be a recruit. Unless possibly someone who might have experience (such as military) is recruited to do a special assignment (such as infiltrating enemy lines).What is a seasoned recruit?

"esperto principiante" ??

una recluta anziana, per quanto ne so io, è una recluta che sta per prendere i gradi.
Immaginiamo il vecchio sistema in Italia di servizio di leva militare obbligatorio.
non appena arruolato sei una recluta, dopo un po diventi una recluta un po' meno recluta, ovvero anziana.
sicuramente c'è un gergo militare ma io non lo conosco
yes, that's right.Artrella said:Raw recruits (= completely new soldiers) were trained for six months (and then they became seasoned recruits) and then sent to the war front.
alfry said:yes, that's right.
how long is a new recruit to be considered as a raw recruit?
what does he become after this period?
It's not a matter of time. You could become experienced in a matter of months. It's a matter of how knowledgeable you are.A raw recruit is the beginner (raw means "crudo")...and after this period I imagine he becomes a "seasoned recruit".
