Unless you have reached the golden “ICAO Level 6,” your goal as a pilot or air traffic controller is to reach ICAO Level 4 or 5. At Expedite Aviation English, we help students to reach that goal on a daily basis. By focusing on conversation and the skills needed by pilots, air traffic controllers, and other aviation personnel, most of our students reach their goal within a month or two. If you are not familiar with the Aviation English language descriptors, please visit this page on Skybrary.
In the above infographic, you will find a variety of ways you can work to improve your ICAO English Proficiency. No matter what your level, here are a few highlights to help:
- Listen, speak, and read as much as you can.
- Make sure that you speak with someone who is willing and able to correct you English and explain common errors you might make.
- Take your time to enunciate clearly. It’s far better to speak cautiously rather than have to repeat yourself.
- Allow yourself time!! Remember that ICAO research shows it takes approximately 100 hours of English language study to improve 1/2 level. Even though most of our students improve one full level in a month, the key to success is that our students choose to do the work it takes to be successful.
- If you don’t want to do it yourself, remember that Expedite Aviation English is here to help. Whatever your schedule, we have a course to help you improve without having to travel to another country to learn English. Save yourself money by focusing on what you need.
