摘要:

为肯定过去所做的努力并展望未来,我们需要对过去有一个了解。本演讲分三个部分。第一部分,对海事英语的历史进行规划。在过去一个世纪中,一些人积极主动地识到有效沟通在海运业中有迫切的需求,我们也将重温他们做出的预测和建议。第二部分,更新并描述在本世纪中十六年以来实际发生的事件,还包括其一般趋势,以及所有遇到的兴趣领域和问题。还着重认识了国际海事组织的影响力带来的冲击,对国际研究项目进行评论,展现当代教学方法的运用,指出开发出的新资源,并解释了IMLA-IMEC的扩展内容。第三部分,通过对寻求问题“海事英语——未来的方向何在?”的答案,批判性地分析当前技术发展是否使得人类语言交流变得多余,从而展望未来。所演示的规划图是为了提出更高的教学标准和通过IMLA-IMEC成员的合作努力进行学习,同时建立一个更全面的海事英语框架。此外,演讲者还考虑了海事英语讲师的专业形象,以及海事英语教学质量管理体系是否可取性,价值性,甚至其必要性。

 

Abstract

To appreciate the present, and anticipate the future, we need to have an understanding of the past. Thus, this presentation has three parts.PartOne maps the history of Maritime English and revisits the predictions and recommendations of those who were proactive in recognising the critical need of effective communication within the maritime industry during the past century. Part Two, is an update, an account of what has actually happened during the 16years of the present century and includes the general trends, areas of interest and issues encountered. In particular, the impact of IMO’s influence is recognised, international research projects are commented upon, the application of contemporary teaching methods are presented, the development of new resources are noted and the expansion of IMLA-IMEC is explained. Part Three looks to the future by seeking an answer to the question "Maritime English – What Course Ahead?"and critically examines whether present technological developments are capable of making human linguistic exchanges redundant.A road map is presented with the intention of promoting enhanced standards of teaching and learning through the co-operative efforts of IMLA-IMEC members while at the same time establishing a more comprehensive Maritime English framework.Further, the author/presenter considers the professional profile of Maritime English instructors and the question whether a Quality Management System for Maritime English instruction is desirable, useful or even necessary.
