Why

Background

Researches establish that a contributory factor to the increase in maritime accidents is lack of communication skills of seafarers serving at sea and ashore (40 percent). Marine accidents and incidents are recurring due to a lack of English language skills of maritime personnel. Besides this, learning a foreign language in a professional context is always complex and problematic. This is because of a variety of reasons why the use of English language at sea has been the issue when the root causes of marine accidents are investigated. The world, as repetitively reported, needs competent seafarers with good communication skills. Therefore, there is a real need for seafarers to be trained as such that they acquire the skills and competences that college education cannot deliver.
