IFATCA’s “Speak English Program” (SEP), developed by the Asia/Pacific region, was kicked off today with a briefing. The program aims to enhance the English-speaking capabilities of air traffic control staff around the region. Through a welcome and friendly English-speaking environment without any judgement or pressure, it helps participants to be able to think in English, practice speaking and build self-confidence.
A typical one-hour session, involving one facilitator and up to two participants includes a warm up/introduction/ice-breaker; a discussion; a short video and a picture description session.
The program is open to all IFATCA Member Associations from May 1st 2021. More details can be found here.
