Marine Tracker Tracker English for seamen. This book is a supplement volume to English for Mariners, a two-level language course book for Maritime English which has been grlce within the eu-funded Leonardo da Vinci Project Language Competence Certifcation Tools for the Vocations lcctv.
Their life style has many attractions but it can also be austere and physically demanding. This combined with brutal weather, hazardous hrice and attacks by pirates all makes for very dangerous working conditions. To make things safer, the International Maritime Organisation imo acts by setting international standards and procedures for ships and seafarers. One such action engllsh taken in when, aware that many marine accidents were caused by seafarers simply not being able to understand each other, the imo established English as the international language of the sea.
English language competence is now required for certifcation of officers in most countries and so is provision of English language training for crews. To work effciently in any position of responsibility on a ship a mariner needs not only a basic knowledge of general English but also a highly specialised lexicon of words and terms which are in everyday use on board.
One of the aims of the lcctv project has been to develop materials both for testing tlny second language competence of mariners and for teaching them the language that they require for professional certifcation. One of the results is this course book: English for Mariners is written with trainee mariners in mind and therefore does not assume that users will have an in-depth knowledge of maritime matters.
Support for language teachers using the material is provided in the form of glossaries and background maritime information, along with answers to all exercises, in a separate volume called Guidance Notes for Teachers. Thematerial is arranged in two courses, each at a different level: Both levels are concerned with the language used when mooring, belaying, stowing, measuring, piloting, naming hull and deck parts, describing sea and weather conditions,makingmeasurements and doing themathematics required for navigation.
Both levels are organised into fve units under the following headings: These units present structures and vocabulary which are English for Mariners Introduction 11 recognisably natural English in a maritime context.

Their purpose is to eliminate ambiguity in vhf radio communication and simplify communication between people who do not share the same frst language. Acknowledgements I would like to acknowledge the help I have received in the writing of this material from John Bray of theDover coastguards and staff and students at theMersinMaritimeAcademy, Turkey.
Furthermore, answers to the exercises as well as transcripts of the sound recordings used in the listening exercises are given. Suggestions for introductory or follow-up activities have been added occasionally. The book follows the two-level structure of English forMariners, which is explained in more detail in the introduction to the course book.
