INTERMAR is a project designed to facilitate the reciprocal understanding and learning of languages through intercomprehension in a maritime context.

It is a fact that English remains the professional maritime language, but in many situations, good communication fails due to a single-minded belief that anything that is not English is incomprehensible.

In order to change this attitude, we believe that the life-long learning of several languages and deeper understanding of other cultures are the key to success. Improved communication will be one of the expected outcomes.

The partner consortium is composed of 18 institutions including European maritime colleges, both merchant marine and naval, as well as universities with a language training component.

A 3 ECTS credit module was created in 2012 and 2013 to be used in maritime language training in higher education.

The basic idea is that related languages are understandable when used in specific contexts, both oral situations and texts.
