Maritime English

Seably 1 hour and 2 minutes

How should we communicate to avoid or at least reduce misunderstandings? Develop your skills in giving and receiving verbal instructions. Familiarise yourself with Maritime English and Standard Marine Communication Phrases (SMCP).

In this four-lesson course, you will familiarise yourself with Maritime English and Standard Marine Communication Phrases (SMCP). The aim is to ease communication onboard. The course provides tools for the less easy speaker to get started practising, taking, and giving instructions.

More skilled, or native English, speakers are also provided with means to adjust or “downsize” their vocabulary to ensure successful communication.
