The course is divided into 12 modules. Two modules combine to make up one level of the CEFR (excluding B1). If you took the full course it can help you progress from CEFR level A1 to level C1. If you study as recommended, you can expect to complete a module in three months – this is equivalent to advancing a level of the CEFR in six months.
Each module includes learning, exercises and tests which work together to grow and test comprehension and improve your ability. There are at least 50 hours of learning available in each module, more in the higher levels, along with many additional resources. These create a fully involved learning experience, which is unlike any other course provider.
An integrated English test at the start of the course will help to place you at the correct starting module. For example, if your current level of English is A2 then the test will place you into Module 5. It’s important that you start with the most relevant module – if you start too low you will find the course too easy but start to high and you will not learn as quickly as you are able.
In addition to the core English language e-learning, we have additional specialised e-learning for pilots and air traffic controllers, specifically designed to help prepare for the language fluency test required by the ICAO.
The material has been authenticated by pilots, air traffic controllers and aviation English trainers both in English speaking countries and in countries such as Spain & Brazil, in Asia and the Middle East.
As well as digital reading material, the course Audio CD includes a variety of realistic interchanges between pilots and air traffic controllers. There is also one to one coaching with an aviation English specialist if needed.
You can join small online classes in general English as well as Aviation English. In addition to this you can take one to one tuition with expert English tutors, helping you to hone your skills and discuss real life situations in order to master grammar, pronunciation and context.
Who is this course for?
This course is suitable for flight cadets, pilots needing to refresh their English, air traffic controllers, cabin crew, aircraft engineers and those in airport and aircraft management.
The more general English you can speak the better, however, that’s not essential. We can teach from the very basics through to full fluency in both English and Aviation English.
