Description: Welcome on Board! Conversations on Merchant Vessels recreates various situations that seamen often encounter on board merchant ships, plus some scenes that take place on shore. Each situation
is selected for the purpose of familiarizing seamen with the realities of their life, while learning English, which is the universal language of navigation. By practicing the conversations, notes and keywords, you can experience, first hand, realistic developments that occur on board merchant vessels. The conversations also include some practical advise on seamen’s life, actual navigational operations, realistic descriptions of ship-bound equipment and navigation techniques.
The level of English increases gradually as the story unfolds. In the first few chapters, conversations are general with simple vocabulary and grammatical structure. These language elements become slightly more difficult as you progress. However, you needn’t worry. Most of the difficult words and technical terms are explained in simple English in the <Notes> that appear below each conversation. These terms, or keywords, are clearly marked with red ink in the text.
Now you need not consult a dictionary each time you encounter an unknown word! In order to help you learn the accurate pronunciation, intonation and rhythm, which are all important aspects of language learning, four compact disks (CDs) are provided for you.
Close-to-real depiction and enactment of each scene has been created through the voice talents of Bianca Allen, Dennis Falt, Michael Naishtut, Greg Irwin and other professional voice actors and narrators.
So just sit back and enjoy the 115 dramatized scenes that you are likely to encounter on board a merchant ship. Now, listen to the CDs first and read the textbook later. Of, if you prefer, listen as your eyes trail on the text. However you study, remember that the best way of mastering a language is by hearing and repeating. Just like a baby picking up its mother tongue, listen to the sounds of English over and over and repeat them. Then study with the textbook and review the Notes.
Lastly, all the members of the editorial staff wish each one of you the best of luck in sailing across the world while learning English. Have a safe and enjoyable journey!
Bon voyage!
