How to Embed General English Grammar and Vocabulary in Maritime English Teaching

This article is aimed to provide various manners in which to reach the same goal, i.e. to embed general English grammar and vocabulary in maritime (engineering) English classes. Research has revealed that almost half of the accidents at sea are due to poor knowledge of maritime English. Hence, it is quite a challenge for maritime English lecturers to know what and, more importantly, how to teach future maritime engineers. It is vital for all seafarers, regardless of their rank on board, to be able to communicate in English. As for marine engineers, just like deck officers, they need to master all four skills even if, depending on the circumstances, some skills may prevail at times. Therefore, it is desirable for them to convey coherent and cohesive messages about their work, both orally and in writing.
