Intercultural training for airline employees
Social English is an English course for cabin crew, ground staff, airport security and other airline employees who have a lot of contact with people from around the world. Improved proficiency in English will help you achieve success in your career and open many doors for you. But proficiency in English isn't always measured by performance in exams - it's also how you communicate and interact with other people.
Improved social communication skills will benefit both you and your airline
As a representative of an airline, how you respond and interact with people is very important. You need to communicate with both native and second language speakers in English, and demonstrate awareness of different cultures. Often you will need to deal with difficult situations in English, and showing sensitivity and giving appropriate responses can help resolve these situations positively.
The skills learned on the Social English course will also help you personally in your everyday life, as you become more confident and are able to interact on a deeper and more meaningful level with English speakers around the world. You will develop new interests and be able to take advantage of new social opportunities.
