This course is suitable for English language teachers who wish to learn more about the requirements that pilots and air traffic controllers must comply with in order to pass their Aviation English language proficiency tests.
It provides an overview of the communicative needs of pilots and air traffic controllers, then looks at the six language requirements that they are judged on (Pronunciation, Structure, Vocabulary, Fluency, Comprehension and Interactions), as well as some of the teaching and testing materials that are available on the market at the moment.
The course takes the form of 8-self access modules that can be completed at your own pace, along with 2 (optionally 3) online tutorials with a Lenguax tutor, to discuss the contents of the course.
It follows the format of our highly-regarded Rater Course for Aviation English examiners, but is intended for individuals rather than groups.
It is suitable for teachers who have a language teaching qualification or background, and who are aiming to help aviation professionals to pass their language tests. It may also be of interest to aviation professionals that are expected to help train their colleagues, in that it provides some example teaching materials and guidance on how to produce more. However, it is not intended as a replacement to an entry-level language teaching qualification such as as Cert TESOL or CELTA.
