Let us introduce an excellent training pack developed by Ernest D'Acunto. It consists of the booklet and a set of audio files intended to help readers improve and control their pronunciation. The book itself has been divided into eleven chapters. The opening chapter of the booklet checks what is the English language for transport and logistics while the second chapter s dedicated to the knots and how to tie them properly. The other chapters cover various fields of transport and logistics, including nomenclature of various parts of the vessel, including dimensions, hull materials, construction techniques, navigation etc. There is a separate chapter dealing with the various positioning tools, namely radars and GPS systems. Moreover, there are chapters on the weather prediction tools, meteorology, intermodal freight transport, oil tankers, handling of goods and passengers, safety regulations, safety signs and legislation, and so many other aspects of transportation (note, however, that the terminology dealt with in the book is not limited to sea transportation). There is one additional file included in the pack, containing answer keys to all exercises and transcripts.
