From Vladivostok to Manila; from Genoa to Dalian.
Our online two-month course will enable your employees to significantly improve their level of maritime English. We first assess their CEFR level and then they follow an online course, focusing on pronunciation, fluency of speech, and comprehension. At the end of the course, they are tested again and receive a certificate to show they have reached the required standard. A large proportion of the participants who follow our online course improve their CEFR level.
By taking steps to help your seafarers communicate more effectively, you enable them to work more safely and efficiently, improve their social skills and enhance their future career prospects.
