Just how good are you with English prepositions? Try this quiz and find out!
Hint: A preposition is a word governing, and usually preceding, a noun or pronoun and expressing a relation to another word or element in the clause, as in “the man on the platform,” “she arrived after dinner,” “what did you do it for ?”
Why do so many people fail to reach the final interview stages for cabin crew roles? Well let’s read about your experiences:
She first told me I have a very slim chance of getting through as I my English was not up to the mark. (I am in fact from one of the European countries) as they are more favourable for this job. At first I thought it was not true, and surely some people must get through... but no, only 3 out of 35 made it...
Our first and most important tip: PRACTISE, PRACTISE AND PRACTISE more on your English language proficiency.
You will do a one to one Role play and a group exercise for this interview. If successful with them both then a one to one with the managers. My advice to anyone is look your best but not over the top, walk with grace, do not rehearse your answers, talk to people, maintain eye contact...but above-all, your English speaking, listening and writing skills must be very good.
It does matter how you look, how well you work in a team situation, how well you interact with the managers. But, if your English isn’t good enough, you will be rejected.
Arrived thirty minutes early and all of our documents were checked. Once we had all completed a short form asking about tattoos, and pre booked holidays etc. we were asked in small groups to go and have our height checked and asked to confirm whether we had any tattoos and where they were.
Once everyone had done this we had a short presentation on BA and what a typical roster would look like etc.
After this we were all taken back to the waiting area where we were all called randomly for the group activity or the role play.
I didn’t make it to the group activity stage ☹ They said my spoken English was not good enough.
Think about the time and money these great people invested to get this far in the process only to find their hopes and dreams shattered by a simple failure to communicate effectively in English.

Managing today's busy international airlines...
We had a team of English teachers but the classes were often empty and the costs of the teachers plus employee downtime was very high."
Tangent Training contacted the company and discussed the use of a corporate language strategy. After a few presentations and some live demonstrations, a trial was agreed with 30 cabin crew. They were tested and grouped then given access to the Tangent's virtual classrooms via their tablets and smart phones.
"The trial was very impressive. The cabin crew could go online with their live trainer when they were in hotels on stopovers or turnarounds. They reported that the course was great fun and totally centred around flight attendants' language needs. Not only that, we actually saved money because of the time savings and we didn't need any locally employed teachers."
