How do classes and courses work?

The classes and courses on Fly High English are designed for flight attendants, pilots and people interested in these careers. All classes are done via Skype or Zoom. This gives you the flexibility to continue your course wherever you are; at home, on layover in a hotel or even on reserve at the airport. Outside of class time you are expected to review things you have studied in your previous classes and also to do any homework given to you by your teacher.

Getting Started

If you don’t have a Skype account you can create one for free here or you can create a Zoom account here. You should add ‘flyhighenglish’ as a contact (in Skype or Zoom) before you begin your course.

Before you start a course you usually need to do an evaluation. This evaluation is usually around 30 minutes and is free. It’s a good chance for you to test your internet connection and for us to get to know your level of English and what your objectives are. You don’t need to prepare anything for this. We’ll talk about your english learning history, your career, aviation in general and do a couple of activities if necessary. Remember this isn’t a test, it’s just for us to get an idea of things we might need to study or review in the future.

Course Content

Because your course will be just you, the content of it will be suited to your needs, if you want to do an interview preparation course and already have the required English level necessary, the focus will be on interview type questions and talking about your experience, your character etc..

If you do preparation for an ICAO test you do things which include; structure, vocabulary, pronunciation, comprehension, fluency and interaction practice. These are the same skills that are necessary for the ICAO test. For more information click here or click on the image ICAO Level 4 Classes below to go directly to the product page for this course.

There is also a Fast track ICAO preparation course.

Cancellations

If you cancel a class or mock interview two hours in advance, you don’t pay anything, if you cancel less than 2 hours before or you don’t cancel and don’t appear for your class or mock interview, you must pay the full value for the class. Class cancellations should be done by email.

Unless otherwise agreed, classes and courses are valid for twelve months. So if you purchase classes on 5th February, you can take those classes until 4th February of the next year, if you don’t take all of your classes within these twelve months you will lose them.

Working via Skype or Zoom sometimes creates unexpected internet problems, in this circumstance there is no charge for cancelled classes.

Normal Classes

For a normal class you’ll need a device for connecting to Skype or Zoom and an internet connection to support video calling. Usually this is a laptop computer but you could use a tablet or a phone. You’ll also need something to write your notes on, this could be paper or again it could be your computer, tablet or phone.
