Prior experience of working and living, as an English seafarer for P&O Cruises (early 1990s) with an international crew, and with the responsibility for ‘on-the-job’ training for new recruits from the Philippines: provided a good insight into the early principals and ethos of a practical teaching approach now commonly know as TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) or TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language). Training new Princess Cruises recruits in wine service and stock control technology, whilst supporting their English Language development (which was essential for their work at sea on cruise ships). This was dynamic with effective results. Seafarer safety duties such as lifeboat drills with 75 [multi-national] crew members, as a lifeboat/raft supervisor, was another early TEFL/TESOL experience as a P&O seafarer working with Italian, Indian, Chinese and Philippine nationals, for instance. A few years later (1994) as a live-in English Tutor for a private Turkish family in Turkey. This experience reinforced the practical implementation of the TEFL/TESOL approach in both formal and informal situations, the benefits and also its limitations in a non-native English speaking country/community.
