Getting ready for your Language Proficiency Test (LPT)? At Level6 Aviation, we want to ensure you're fully prepared for the online test. Here are some essential tips to help you succeed:
When setting up for your test, make sure there are no accessories like hats or sunglasses that could obstruct the examiner's ability to confirm your identity.
A well-lit environment is crucial for clear webcam visibility. Make sure you're positioned in a way that your face is clearly visible to the examiner.
Choose a quiet, distraction-free space for the test. This will help both you and the examiner focus on the conversation without interruptions.
Treat the Test like a Conversation:
Approach the test as a conversation rather than a series of questions and answers. Aim to provide detailed responses instead of one-word answers. The more you speak, the better we can assess your language skills.
Ask 'Say Again':
If a question or clearance is unclear, don't hesitate to ask for it to be repeated with a 'Say Again'. This is a common phrase in aviation and shows that you're proactively ensuring comprehension.
Relax and Be Yourself:
The LPT is all about testing your language skills, not your knowledge on a specific topic. So, stay calm, be yourself, and remember that the goal is to understand your level of English in an aviation context.
Use Pen and Paper:
You are allowed, and encouraged, to use pen and paper during the test to jot down things like ATC clearances or ATIS.
