Given the wealth of opportunities that Peace Boat participants have to interact with people from around the world, it is important that they are equipped with the language skills necessary to make that interaction as fulfilling and meaningful as possible. To meet this need, both English and Spanish language classes are offered on each Peace Boat voyage; these being two of the most widely spoken languages of communication on the regular routes. Previous voyages have also seen classes in Russian, Vietnamese, Cantonese, French, Portuguese, Korean, and even Swahili. Peace Boat's onboard language programme is known as GET (Global English / Espanol Training). GET is a communication-based programme that aims to improve students' communicative ability and instill confidence in using English and/or Spanish through a dynamic combination of onboard classroom study, language based events and activities, and exchange programmes in ports of call. Furthermore, the GET Programme embraces the concept of Global Language - language as it is used daily around the world as a tool of communication between people from different cultures and countries. For teachers, the programme offers the opportunity to work with a great deal of autonomy, using their creativity both in and out of the classroom while enjoying the unique experience that is Peace Boat.
