Cleared for Takeoff Aviation English Made Easy: Book 1 In this book, students will understand and use the most common terms in.
These aviation English courses appear now due to widening recognition that faulty communication from weak English proficiency has contributed to catastrophe in the past. The new courses, two from the U.
Learner needs vary a good deal, and so users of these courses will need to be clear who they are aiming to serve: trainee controllers, ab initio pilot trainees, or experienced controllers or pilots. The courses vary in purpose, length, and approach. How to decide which of these courses, if any, to adopt? Three aspects that combine to address and solve English language proficiency issues are training, testing, and administration.
We are pleased to see these three new aviation English courses address mainly the training side of the triangle—those with responsibility for programming for compliance will have to manufacture their administrator support, and find other sources for testing for ICAO compliance, most likely from supplementary providers. Twenty five years in aviation English has shown us that cognition is embodied in action—pilots and controllers will learn their target English most readily if they work and interact in a lot of job-related tasks.
It seems logical then that these courses will support learners in acquiring specific aviation vocabulary, will embrace use of radiotelephony between pilots and controllers so that learners improve their proficiency in the English used in ATC, and will allow them to build skills in plain English so they can interact in non-standard aviation situations. Cleared for Takeoff: Two books each with 60 hours, with audio CDs.
Includes a glossary and abbreviations. These course books are intended to be part of the solution—training materials for English language development for civil authorities and airlines. What do they contain, and how good are they? By Henry Emery and Andy Roberts. The principal authors are experienced aviation English teachers.
The pages hold 12 units, either as self-study or for classroom use.
They are said to teach communication skills for pilots and air traffic controllers, helping them to achieve and maintain ICAO Operational Level 4. Despite a lack of empirical evidence to support inclusion, this seems like a rich collection of industry topics that will be of interest and benefit to aviation personnel.
The accompanying recordings, delivered for the classroom at an appropriately slower rate than in the real world, use a wide range of accented Englishes, which gives Aviation English a solid international footprint. Systematically organized among these topics are exercises that address features of pronunciation and English grammatical structure and include, for example, word and sentence stress, intonation and pausing, diphthongs, question forms, and past tense endings, which are all issues probably beyond the knowledge of flight personnel to organize and tackle.
In addition, each unit contains a series of functions of language that include asking for clarification, explaining how something works, stating intentions, announcing decisions, expressing non-understanding, and so on. Each of four sections in the Units contain vocabulary exercises, and the back of the book has a pair work section, and listening scripts.
The accompanying Teacher's Book which we did not see for this review should help less well trained aviation instructors to operate the contents.
Because Aviation English is designed in the tradition of English teaching texts, its color and interesting graphic design may, perversely, cause it not be taken as seriously as it warrants by the aviation community.
