ICAO Aviation English Pronunciation Supplementary Class (Saturday) HKG

From December 24, 2022 11:00 am until December 24, 2022 1:00 pm

Aviation English Asia has developed a unique Learning Method that can quickly and easily help you achieve clear pronunciation

Class format:

ICAO Aviation English Pronunciation Supplementary Classes are informal 2 hour sessions focused on fixing problems with learners' 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 conducted by a licensed Aviation English teacher with years of experience training pilots, mechanics and controllers.  

Class content:

The Supplementary Class will cover specific pronunciation difficulties of learners in Hong Kong (typically Cantonese speakers) when communicating in English. The Pronunciation Supplementary Class is composed of 4 modules.

  1. Vowel sounds
  2. Basic phonemes (minimal pairs such as /p/ and /b/ eg, 'lap' and 'lab'),
  3. Voiced and unvoiced sounds
  4. Past tenses

Learners will learn how the different areas of the mouth can be used to pronounce the 44 individual English sounds of English clearly, and practice these sounds in a wide range of practical interactive activities.  Learners can build on what they learn in the Supplementary Classes with self-study activities which are tailor-made for each individual learner.

Learners  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.  

Class standards and relevance:

Class content conforms to the AEROSTA Framework developed by the Aviation English Organisation.  This is your guarantee that the skills learned will be relevant to ICAO Language Proficiency Requirements.  

Supplementary Class fees:

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

AEA current students: $500 HKD (2-4 students) / $300 HKD (5-8 students)

Non-enrolled students $800 (2-4 students) /400 HKD (5-8 students)
