So far I’ve learnt that an interactive teaching/ learning activity that will value my students’ interventions should focus on creating a scientific context that would stimulate the debates within my ESP seminars and lectures.

One of the aims of these projects has been to develop materials both for testing the second language competence of mechanical and maritime engineers and for teaching them the language that they require for their professional certification. I do not assume that my users will have an indepth knowledge of mechanical and maritime engineering matters. Therefore, the units have been devised to help students improve their knowledge and use of English in an engineering environment. Each unit covers vocabulary related to a certain topic area- ranging from basic maritime and mechanical engineering vocabulary to conversations on board, safety at work, types of ships and so on- and is designed to reinforce the grammar knowledge of students and improve their communicative skills.

I come to realize that the more realistic situations and contexts I’ll be using, the more realistic my teaching materials and methods will become. My lectures are addressed to pre-intermediate and intermediate students that already have a basic knowledge of English grammar and, therefore, they are thematically-centered on developing the reading, writing, speaking and listening abilities that they need to communicate in their studying field. In other words, the lectures aim to help them:

  • Increase their knowledge of technical English.
  • Discuss familiar things, key engineering concepts and principles.
  • Communicate with fellow students and engineers in other countries.
  • And, nevertheless, become more fluent and accurate in a wide range of technical fields.
