Description: In the age we live in, sea transportation has become a very important business all over world. Maritime countries give greater and greater care and importance to the development of the shipping industry and thus hope to profit from it. Although our country, Turkey, has about 8000 km. of coast line, it is unfortunate that our merchant marine fleet cannot be said to have reached the capacity necessary to meet the requirements of our exports and imports. Furthermore, merely tonnage is not enough: we must also have well-educated personnel who really know the merchant marine business. Such personnel must have a good knowledge of the English used in the merchant marine. Every nation involved in the business of the merchant marine must realize that unless the personnel in their fleets have a thorough knowledge of English, their fleets cannot be properly developed nor will they have the freedom to act effectively in the international shipping market.
