Marlins English Testing

 With the increasing regulations throughout the maritime industry, Marlins English testing has become a vital part of the employment process for international Officers and crew.

 Ascent Navals Thailand is one of a few commercially run Marlins Approved certification Course Centers along with the other training academies as well as examination center at all its branch offices that is able to test individuals competency on their spoken English language ability, in line with the rigorous standards of Marlins.

 We offer the following Marlins English tests:

 ISF Marlins Test of Spoken English (TOSE)

 The ISF Marlins Test of Spoken English (TOSE) provides the oral assessor with a standardized interview format for assessing the speaking and listening skills of all ranks and nationality of seafarers. Used as a stand-alone product, it provides a thorough assessment of the seafarer's ability to understand and speak English. Used in conjunction with the ISF Marlins computer test it provides the employer with a complete profile of the seafarer's language proficiency.

 Key Features of the ISF Marlins Test of Spoken English:

 Provides the interviewer with a standardized interview protocol for assessing the speaking and listening skills of seafarers

  • Offers extensive guidelines and criteria on how to grade the seafarer's speaking and listening abilities
  • Offers a standardized means of recording and interpreting test results
  • Results can be used to support the outcome of the ISF Marlins Test
  • Providing a complete language profile for the employer
  • Results can be used to highlight specific skill areas which require training

 Spoken English Assessment for Cruise Ship Staff (SPEACS)

 The Marlins Spoken English Assessment for Cruise ship Staff (SPEACS) has been developed to help carry out effective assessment of the oral and aural skills of cruise ship staff in a one-to-one interview situation. The SPEACS can be used to identify the need for training and to assess progress during and / or after training.

 Marlins recommend that the SPEACS is used in conjunction with the ISF Marlins Test to give a balanced profile of a seafarer’s language level and ability.

 This will ensure a secure and objective assessment of language level (from the computer test) complemented by a personal assessment of communication skills (from the SPEACS).
