🤓 Topics discussed between the panel of examiners and the candidate are aviation related.

Since the essence of civil aviation related language assessment is verbal communication, spelling, spelling errors, making the candidate write and all related variants are not to be part of the assessment, nor a criterion for the grading of the candidates’ language proficiency. Technical accuracy of what was discussed is not to affect the language assessment.

The test developed by AEPS for the plain language test is composed of the following exercises:

  • The picture description
  • The open question
