Intercultural training for airline employees

Social English is an English course for cabin crew, ground staff, airport security and other airline employees who have a lot of contact with people from around the world.  Improved proficiency in English will help you achieve success in your career and open many doors for you.  But proficiency in English isn't always measured by performance in exams - it's also how you communicate and interact with other people.

Social English

Improved social communication skills will benefit both you and your airline

As a representative of an airline, how you respond and interact with people is very important.  You need to communicate with both native and second language speakers in English, and demonstrate awareness of different cultures.  Often you will need to deal with difficult situations in English, and showing sensitivity and giving appropriate responses can help resolve these situations positively.  

The skills learned on the Social English course will also help you personally in your everyday life, as you become more confident and are able to interact on a deeper and more meaningful level with English speakers around the world.  You will develop new interests and be able to take advantage of new social opportunities.

Social English will help you:

  • Develop strong English communication skills
  • Improve your listening and speaking
  • Gain confidence when speaking to other English speakers
  • Develop cultural awareness and sensitivity
  • Improve your fluency and accuracy in English.

Focus on the English language skills you need

You can develop each of these skills on the Social English course, as you discuss and explore common situations that can affect you in every day life.  Particular focus is given to improving core language skills:

  • Listening comprehension
  • Vocabulary
  • Pronunciation
  • Grammar
  • Fluency

A higher level of English proficiency

Many airline employees want to improve their English beyond the standard required for the job.  This English course allows you to improve your English and explore a world of rich thought-provoking topics.  It is possible to develop near-native fluency on the Social English course if you take a sufficient number of sessions. You can also choose to take an assessment from Cambridge ESOL to show your English proficiency.
