Intensive Aviation-Oriented English Course:

This intensive private language training allows for a great emphasis on technical and non-technical English as A Second Language (ESOL) instruction.

Over the course of the training period, we will review all aspects of general English and aviation-specific topics such as terminology and air traffic control communication procedures. All of your training will be focused on improving your general communication skills in addition to preparing you for the ICAO Language Proficiency Test. Much emphasis will be placed on speaking, pronunciation and listening skills.

While this language course allows for a great emphasis on air traffic control procedures and aeronautical terminology, an extensive English as A Second Language (ESOL) curriculum will also be offered to ensure a well-rounded language learning experience. Instructor-directed field trips will be planned to allow each student to practice English in a variety of real-world scenarios.

This course is designed for students whose English comprehension and communication ability allow general language-oriented preparation for eventual F.A.A./ICAO testing and pilot transition. Although no flight training or FAA training will be provided, individual attention is given to build confidence and professionalism in the aeronautical environment.

A placement test in oral and written English will be given to each student upon arrival. The results of this test are evaluated to determine the level of instruction required. This individualized test is used to measure a student’s level in reading, writing, speaking and understanding English and then provide instruction to accommodate students with varying abilities and needs.



We will meet at a minimum of 5 hours per day (2.5 hours in the morning and 2.5 hours in the afternoon/evening.) A limited amount of additional hours will be made available, if necessary, at no additional cost.
