But won't the airline teach me everything I need to know during my initial training (if I'm successful)?

English for flight attendants

No.  The airline will not teach you how to speak English. The airline will expect you to have a basic level of English when you join the airline, and then improve your language skills in your own time.  Even airlines with large language training departments offer minimal ongoing language training for their flight attendants. Passengers and flight crew all over the world recognise that flight attendants need a high level of language proficiency.

Don't wait for the airline to teach you English or you could lose the job to someone who already has better English.
