Aviation Training Courses at English Language Hometays

Operational aviation professionals are required to reach and maintain ICAO level 4 and above.


Our aviation English course aims to reach a level 4 or above in the ICAO language proficiency scale and provide entrants with the necessary English language skills in order to operate safely and effectively in an aviation environment.


The course covers a range of topics associated with flying in particular and the aviation industry in general. It concentrates on the use of plain English in non-routine situations, but also supports some standard phraseology.


Flight phases covered include: pre-flight, en-route, contact & approach and landing.


It also uses role-play, prediction, paraphrasing and summarizing in settings such as:

- miscommunication

- meteorological conditions

- medical problems

- security issues in order to build confidence and improve overall communication skills.


How the course works:

The course focuses on the six specific areas of language skill specified by ICAO: pronunciation, structure, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and interaction.


We will prepare you for ICAO Level 4 by offering you evaluation during the course through a Diagnostic test, a Progress test and a final test. After your initial assessment, your Tutor will work with you to help you achieve the level of skill in all six areas specified in the ICAO level 4 profile.
