Efficient and effective aeronautical communication helps maintain a safe operating environment. Language learning forms an integral part of this communication process and thus demands professional and skilled language training in a communicative context that matches the real-life operational role of the learner.

It is therefore vital for flight safety that trainers charged with teaching language to operational personnel have a real understanding of the specific and unique features of this communication. At English Plus our operational and pedagogical experience ensures that our training programme for aviation English teachers is specifically developed and targeted to develop this understanding.

We also believe that if English teachers and trainers in the highly dynamic world of aviation are as highly qualified and knowledgeable as the students they teach, they are better prepared to deliver high quality and appropriate learning to their students.

Our 2-week course introduces approaches and knowledge of teaching practice specifically for aeronautical communication between pilots and air traffic control. It allows a development of existing teaching pedagogy and skills, through practical guidance, enabling teachers to help learners communicate in real-life operational contexts in the aviation environment.

Classes will translate theory and knowledge into practical ‘hands-on’ modules which are participant-centred and entail involvement in tasks and activities relevant to aviation learning contexts for real-world communication.

Our 2020 courses are offered in two equally beautiful settings – Norwich, UK, and Lausanne, Switzerland, and offer full modern training facilities with easy transport access. Online and onsite library facilities are offered, and site visits to operational aviation locations are always arranged subject to availability during the course.
