From 8 to 12 April, 3 teachers and 3 students from ENSM visited the Romanian Naval Academy in Constanta as part of the Erasmus+ MAR-Lang project, along with the third partner, the Lithuanian Maritime Academy. Christelle Nicolas and Claire Cérède from the Saint-Malo site and Octavian Postolache from the Marseille site took part in the third MAR-Lang event, accompanied by Bastianu Barolo, Sofiane Pruvot and Nicolas Villaume, 2nd year OCQPI students.

The event provided an opportunity for all the partners and students to contribute to the ongoing development of the Moodle learning platform, on which all the partners have been working since February 2023, when the project was launched.

The aim of this Erasmus+ project is to promote the teaching and learning of French maritime terms on three themes: port and maritime logistics, naval mechanics and ship manoeuvring and cargo handling. These three courses are also taught in English.

The trip was also an opportunity for the three students to take part in the CadetNav Conference. This conference brings together officer cadets from different maritime academies and gives them the opportunity to present a topic. The ENSM students chose the theme of wind propulsion, presenting “Renaissance of wind propulsion in maritime transport”. The presentation was a great success, attracting a great deal of interest from the participants, some of whom had the opportunity to find out more about the subject, while others were able to ask pertinent questions.
