The Maritime English Education Program (MEEP) consists out of several steps. In the schematic below you will find all of the steps with an explanation of what you can expect and the things you will have to do.
For participants in Spot On Learning programs all learning activities will take place on my.spotonlearning.eu (the place you are right now) and for all Maritime and Business English courses also on EnglishCentral.
All learning activities on my.spotonlearning.eu can be accessed using a PC, tablet or smartphone (mobile) using an internet browser. If you are using a recent version of any popular internet browser you will be fine. Having an internet connection of 128/64 kbps down/up should be enough to do your learning.
If you follow an EnglishCentral (Maritime or Business) English program you can do your learning using a PC (desktop or laptop, Windows, Mac or Chrome OS) and for most learning activities you can also use the EnglishCentral app. You need to be able to hear sound and speak using a microphone (which is nowadays often built-in into your computer and of course standard in a smartphone).
An internet speed of 1MB/second or higher is recommended to use EnglishCentral. It does work however from speeds 256/128 kbps down/up or higher*.
