Finally, there is a way to learn English necessary for flight in one course made for pilots by pilots. Students are continually motivated and stimulated by the relevance and applicability to their flying. Listening/speaking exercises and role-plays are abundant for practice and performance. The students love the vibrant and clear photos, while the teacher can appreciate the excellent binding of high grade paper as they withstand the constant handling of over 60 course hours. The audio CDs are an excellent method for increasing listening comprehension. Role-playing is enjoyed by all students and can even be taken farther for fun and learning. The topics sparked many in-class discussions and aided in guided group discussions leading to students putting their new knowledge into practice.
Language and vocabulary are introduced as would be used in both FAA and ICAO countries as well as many explanations of various ways to refer to situations, parts of aircraft and the airport itself to help teach students the many differences they will find in language on the airways and in the real world of aviation. Highly visible language notes help for understanding of these differences.
From a non-pilot point-of-view, the teachers supplement helps with answers and explanations for various situations one might face by not being an aviator, this also is a plus when faced with student pilots whose knowledge of flying in and outside the traffic pattern is limited.
Cleared for Takeoff gives pilots and their teachers everything they need and want; a course book made for them by one of them! One hundred percent of the information in these books is useful and relevant to those who need to speak English in the traffic pattern, on the airways and in the cockpit bound in two colorful and easy to use manuals. Teachers and students alike can appreciate the experience of Captain Mariner as a Master Flight Instructor and language teacher allowing them to benefit from her knowledge and enthusiasm. --Melanie Quillen, Vice President - Plane English and ICAEA Board Member
