This week's Study Groups in Hong Kong

ICAO Aviation English Pronunciation Supplementary Class for Pilots and ATCs (Weekday) HKG

From May 23, 2017 6:30 pm until May 23, 2017 7:30 pm

Aviation English Asia has developed a unique Learning Method that can quickly and easily help you pronounce words more clearly.

ICAO Aviation English Pronunciation Supplementary Classes are informal 1 hour classes focused on fixing problems that learners have with pronunciation.  Supplementary Classes are student-centred and will provide an opportunity for learners to improve their English communication skills in an aviation context.  These classes are not lectures - they are practical and interactive classes supervised by an expert teacher who has been certified to teach Aviation English by the Aviation English Organisation.

On this 2-hour workshop you can do a wide range of practical exercises that will help you improve your pronunciation, and learn some effective strategies for self study to build on the classroom exercises

The workshop will cover specific pronunciation difficulties that learners in Hong Kong (typically Cantonese speakers, but Aviation English Asia often has students from other countries) have when communicating in English, such as basic phonemes (minimal pairs such as /p/ and /b/ eg, 'lap' and 'lab'), vowel sounds and past tenses.

Students who can master basic sounds can also practice more advanced elements of English pronunciation that are assessed in the ICAO Language Proficiency Requirements such as rhythm, intonation, stress (word stress and sentence stress), and build an awareness of connected speech. 

This Supplementary Classes will be conducted by a Professional Aviation English Teacher with years of experience training pilots, mechanics and controllers.

 

Workshop Fees:

Friends of current students can attend at a discounted rate and there are discounts for students who refer friends.

AEA current students: $250 HKD (2-4 students) / $150 HKD (5-8 students)

Non-enrolled students $400 (2-4 students) /200 HKD (5-8 students)
