These courses deal with the language needed for the many facets of river, coastal, law enforcement and engineering.

Several intensive Fachwissenschaft English courses have been given to the Hamburg Port police since 2003 covering law enforcement requirements for MARPOL, oil spills, collisions, stowaways, incoming and outgoing clearances, the various parts of a ship, navigation terminology, as well as criminal activities.

The engineering courses deal with the language of shipbuilding yards, repairers, vessel modifications, construction, design and planning.

Courses are also offered for the language used in leisure activities such as yachting and power boating, and travel agencies that specialise in cruises.

All the above include general English language training.
