  • ICAO Level 3, Pre-Operational, covers a wide range of ability in terms of language competence. The Anglo-Continental levels of English included (Pre-Intermediate to Upper-Intermediate) refer to a trainee’s overall language competence.
  • Any trainee found to be below the level specified for the course, will automatically be transferred to a General Intensive Course (Course G-1.30). The sponsors will be informed immediately in order that a revised study plan may be agreed.
  • Trainees at ICAO Level 2 should contact us for course details.

Our teachers work closely with the Aviation Training Coordinator and the Academic Head in the monitoring of each individual’s progress.

Detailed reports are normally submitted to the trainees’ sponsors or employers at the end of the course – or earlier if a trainee’s performance gives cause for concern.   In longer programmes (18 weeks or more) interim progress reports may be provided at intervals agreed with the Sponsor.

If it can be arranged, training in an English-speaking country makes learning faster, more enjoyable and more effective.   Listening and speaking practice can continue round the clock, and learning something of the culture that lies behind the language greatly helps. Anglo-Continental’s comprehensive programme of excursions, sports and leisure activities adds another dimension to the trainees’ courses, and films, lectures and other educational activities still further increase the speed and breadth of learning.
