Maritime English
The maritime English course 'Cargo & Cargo Handling' helps seafarers improve their English pronunciation and enlarge their maritime English vocabulary. The course consists of 25 videos on the EnglishCentral platform. That platform, that is being used in over 100 countries worldwide, uses innovative speech technology to provide users with detailed feedback about their pronunciation. It also helps expand and test their vocabulary and understanding of spoken English. In this series of videos words and phrases are used that are important in order to work safely and efficiently and communicate with colleagues, workers and officials in ports and on shore. Many words are taken from the SMCP list by IMO.
