Abstract

English has always been essential in Maritime, especially when reached to safety. As a global industry, Maritime sector needs English as the medium to communicate, to create understanding among multinational organization and crew.To countries that have English as their 2nd language, or even as a foreign language, it is still a challenge. Therefore, Maritime English teacher or instructor is a key figure to develop seafarer capabilities. Maritime English Teachers in Indonesia should not only have some English language skills but also specialized training for career purposes, especially in Maritime English teaching because the goal of Maritime English for each college is to cultivate students to have good English communication skills that used on board ship. Based on this standard, Maritime English teachers are expected to be familiar with the related maritime knowledge, so it is possible to encourage the students to use the English for their communication on board ship. This study is intended to identify and to profile the typical maritime English teachers in Indonesia. The study involves 5 Maritime Colleges across Indonesia by distributing questionnaires to collect the data, either through emails or on-site visit. The data is then tabulated to complete the profiles. The idea is to share the findings of the study to the policymaker of Maritime Education and Training Regulator.
