Drawing on almost 100 years of aviation education and research, Embry-Riddle’s Aviation English Department combines language teaching expertise with aviation operational familiarity.

The result? We develop and deliver Aviation English programs that improve aviation professionals' English language skills. And because learning content in our programs is relevant to aviation operations, students in our courses increase their awareness of current safety-related aviation topics. 

How do we teach Aviation English?

Our programs utilize an integrated skills approach to guide the development of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) language skills (Pronunciation, Structure, Vocabulary, Fluency, Comprehension and Interaction). Students practice these skills in listening, speaking and reading activities.

Are Aviation English classes in-person or online?

We recognize that different organizations have different needs. We can deliver programs online, in-person or via a blended approach that incorporates both. Likewise, online courses can be synchronous (real-time virtual communication between students and instructors) or asynchronous (virtual communication not in real-time.)
