Effective communication is a mandatory requirement of the IMO STCW Convention to ensure the safety of crews and vessels. This flagship new Maritime English programme developed by Marlins aims to support seafarers from the marine engine department with essential language skills.
Set on the “MV Marlin”, each unit has a different maritime theme which also integrates grammar, maritime vocabulary, IMO’s SMCP and pronunciation into a comprehensive self-study programme.
The course includes a variety of highly creative, interactive speaking, listening and reading tasks to engage and motivate the learner throughout. An in-built speech recording facility allows learners to compare their own speech with that of a native speaker and encourages self-directed practice.
Each unit concludes with a short revision task to reinforce the learning and provide feedback.
