Each day we practice on Facebook with our free, private Facebook group. If you are a pilot, ATC, or other aviation professional, you can join us. (No Aviation English instructors–except ours, please)
Sometimes we use a video or other materials and study it for the week. Sometimes, it’s just a simple post. However, it’s a place where you can ask questions about Aviation English and do your own studying on your own time. This week, we’re running through a video on Supplemental Oxygen. In the past, we studied “GUMPS.” And the list goes on.
We always say that a little bit of practice goes a long way and the best time to study is not last minute, but for the long term. Therefore, take 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 15 minutes… as you can.
Here’s a brief plan you could follow to keep your aviation English skills strong:
- Pick one from below and do for 5-15 minutes each day
- Listen to a YouTube video about any aviation topic or news story
- Read 1 aviation news story…preferably a current event or report of emerging technology
- Listen to 1 audio of something from LiveATC.net>Interesting Recordings
- Check out a video from our YouTube channel
- Hop into our private Facebook group or main page
- Practice your speaking whenever you can with a colleague/co-worker. Try to discuss a current event, not just casual conversation or every day events that wouldn’t be tested on an ICAO English Proficiency test.
We know that COVID-19 has impacted the world in such a profound way. We know so many pilots that have been grounded or furloughed and ATCs who’ve had reduced schedules. As a result, we’ve created a membership site to allow you to continue to practice your aviation English skills. The value of the membership far exceeds the individual cost of each item. You can learn more about that membership here.
