QUICK TIPS

Need some quick tips to help you improve your Aviation English? 

The best way is to do a proper structured course with Aviation English Asia, within which you will also learn an appropriate study method.  In this section of the website we have combined some quick tips to help you achieve success in an ICAO English test.

ICAO ENGLISH TEST ADVICE: Don't burn out!

Aviation English Asia classes have a sensible, and realistic class length that is proven to help learners achieve their goal.  Our classes are designed to be frequent and often, so you get plenty of practice and your level doesn't drop between classes.  Of course, for learners who are at a very high level already this doesn't matter so much, but for most learners in Hong Kong class length is a very important factor. 

Realistically, most learners between ICAO level 3 and ICAO level 5 are not going to benefit much after 2 hours.  We have found that 90-120 minutes is the optimum time for learning efficiency, especially if you have a day job.

Some of our students who are airline pilots actually attend very intensive courses during daytime, studying up to 6 hours per day.  But their needs are different and we frequently change the type of activities so they don't get too tired.

WARNING: Avoid crash courses!

Hong Kong, much like Taiwan and Thailand is affected by a phenomenon known as bu xi bans.  This translates from mandarin as "cram school".  It's basically where a school is set up trying to help candidates cram for exams.  They offer "crash courses". They copy each other, compete on price and employ backpacking English teachers, usually without a teaching certificate.  The result is students who can barely improve their english but have mediocre exam scores.  They focus on the test but not on building genuine language proficiency.

We have seen a few schools trying to copy our class format recently - even copying names like "unit" and "workshop" and large parts of the text on our website, but they make a fatal mistake - they try to cram information into 4 hour classes.  Some of them even try to copy our company name. This is proof that they are scam organisations. They certainly have no experience in language teaching, and they are just interested in getting your money.

Aviation English Asia Ltd is the only reputable provider of Aviation English is Hong Kong.  We have offered full time courses in Hong Kong since 2009.  We are also accredited by the Aviation English Organisation.

ICAO ENGLISH TEST ADVICE: If you fail an interview or ICAO test keep learning English with AEA until you reach the required level

ICAO ENGLISH TEST ADVICE: If you fail an interview or ICAO test keep learning English with AEA until you reach the required level

One of the most frequent problems we see in Hong Kong is that candidates apply for a cadetship too early (before they are really ready) and they don't pass interviews because of their English level.

After that they either a) lose interest in aviation completely or b) come back to AEA 11 months later - with only enough time to improve a tiny bit.

The other problem we see is "self-study victims" - people who try to save money by self studying for a year - but they focus on the wrong thing, and then come to AEA a few weeks before their interview or ICAO test.

So, INVEST in yourself, INVEST in English with Aviation English Asia and you will find that it improves every aspect of your life - in addition to helping you succeed in gaining a cadetship.

This is the best course to help you achieve that goal. http://aviationenglish.com/english-for-pilots-and-atcos/icao-level-5-for-cadets.html 

ICAO ENGLISH TEST ADVICE: Don't delay - start an Aviation English course today

Our courses typically take 12-60 weeks, although we do offer some shorter courses for people at a higher level of proficiency.

When you are learning English every opportunity to practice correctly spoken English counts.  Remember that you need to improve your proficiency in aviation English, not practice to pass a test.  AEA courses are properly structured to make it fun, effective, easy and affordable to reach your target level.  They are recommended by a lot of airline pilots.
