MarEng (10/2004 - 05/2007)

The original MarEng Learning Tool consists of intermediate and advanced level learning material on different maritime topics. Based on the feedback by different user groups all over the world, the usability of the original Tool has been improved. As a result of the MarEng Plus project, two new topics, Maritime Security and The Marine Environment, as well as elementary level learning material, a Teacher's manual and a mobile phone application of the glossary, have been added in the Tool. MarEng Plus provides more learning materials and all of the MarEng Plus material is English-English and is based on language used in actual simulators on board ships, in ports and elsewhere in the shipping chain. The new material will not only widen the overall user group but also motivate to learn maritime English in different levels.
