Aviation English and Communication Skills
This course is aimed at improving both written and spoken English, with an emphasis on spoken English. Participants will practice role play concentrating especially on the communication between the Inspector and Flight Crew. This will improve the participants' knowledge of general, as well as, professional vocabulary. Authentic and realistic case studies shall be used as practice material. Some presentations may be recorded on video for discussion with the participants.
Reading and writing skills shall be practiced on the basis of relevant authentic material i.e. SAFA inspection procedures.
Furthermore, key areas of grammar shall be reviewed and participants shall become familiar with polite forms in international professional communication. There will be special focus on pronunciation and intonation. The participants shall have the opportunity to practice grammar and pronunciation with the help of computer programs.
Authority Inspectors engaged in the performance of aircraft inspections whereby a large part of the communication is performed in English and frequent interaction with the crew of the inspected aircraft is anticipated.
Prior to the course, an initial oral test will take place in order to get an insight in the level of the participants' English with regards to their proficiency. The minimum level required for participating in the course is Pre-Operational/Operational Level (level 3) according to the ICAO Rating Scale.
