Game Based Maritime English Test – SEAPEAK
The incorrect use of SMCP and wrong pronunciation are one of the major causes of the accidents.
In order to improve the Maritime English knowledge and pronunciation skills, we have developed an interactive 3D serious game that can both be used for training and assessment.
SEAPEAK allows companies to measure the crews’ Maritime English level on both SMCP and pronunciation perspective resulting in a detailed report.
On the other hand crew and students can practice and develop their skills through the platform even from their home.
The platform that SEAPEAK works, is integrated with a voice recognition system that allows users to evaluate the level of pronounced words or phrases.
Within the game, users are required to follow some instructions, walk to the required place and answer the questions asked in 3D environment. The modules are prepared according to SMCP chapters and the game follows these chapters.
After giving the right answer, the users are also required to pronounce the answer in most of the questions. Our platform collects all the results given by the user and gives a comprehensive report related to the chapters.
Users can also listen to the native speaker first and record their pronunciation in the training version.
The game can be downloaded and played through the web and needs an internet connection for the pronunciation evaluation.
