The Aviation English program is based on the belief that both broad and job specific proficiency in English is essential to the students' success in both their social and professional lives. The curriculum is designed to provide aviation professionals with the knowledge and skills they need to achieve these goals. Its aim is to help aviation professionals become successful language learners who can:
- Use English to communicate effectively in a range of job specific situations
- Develop an accent that is comprehensible among aviation professionals
- Identify how cultural differences may impede communication and how to effectively overcome such communication challenges
The Aviation English curriculum expectations are based on the ICAO language proficiency scale, enabling students to achieve their professional objectives. This course is designed for aviation professionals or for students pursuing a post-secondary education in an aviation related field.
English for Aviation is offered as an elective course with 10 lessons a week included in the General English program with 35 lessons a week.
