Aviation English


This course is for aviation professionals - particularly pilots and
air-traffic controllers - who wish to reach and maintain level 4
(operational) as measured by the ICAO Language Profile descriptors
(see pages vi and vii). The course aims to increase confidence in
communication and develops the very specific skills described in the
ICAO level 4 language profile. These are the skills needed to succeed
in any Level 4 assessment and also to function effectively and safely
in an aviation environment.
This course does not aim to teach the phraseology that aviation
professionals need but it is included to provide a context for the plain
English needed for communication between pilots and air-traffic
controllers, and between pilots and pilots. The main focus is on the
language needed to communicate in non-routine and / or emergency
situations during flight operations.
The Student's Book contains the material for the course in the form of
reading and listening texts. The main purpose of this is to present new
vocabulary and to provide a context for the exercises and language
functions. There are lots of pair-work and group-work activities for
speaking practice for the benefit of students using the course in a
classroom situation.
The course is intended both for independent study and for classroom
use. The CD-ROM supports the student's book with interactive language
and pronunciation exercises, simulations in which the student can
participate, and all the audio files from the Student's Book. The Teacher's
Book contains extra support and ideas that can be used to supplement
the material contained in this Student's Book.
