Default Textbooks for teaching flight attendants

i need to change the book we use for teaching flight attendants. Does anyone know a decent textbook that uses flight attendant language AND that is a beginner/intermediate level?

thanks

Hi Eric,

I don't know of any textbooks for flight attendants but I could offer to share my experiences: I once worked with three groups of young people who were on a training program for airport service staff. What I did was compile a list of materials relating to their situation such as articles about airport facility management, airport signs etc. Why not do the same for your group? You could read articles about all the situations a flight attendant has to handle. We could start a list with those situations and then do some research to come up with the right materials. Then we can create glossaries and exercises.
Also, if you like you can take a look at the following tests - there is a PDF version of each for you to download:

http://www.english-test.net/esl/lear...0/esl-test.php

Let me know what you think.
Torsten

I really don't know any free online flight attendant textbooks, but if you don't mind purchasing one, you can check out

also
http://www.skygeek.com/asa-wel-abd-3.html (the same book)

Hopefully this will come of some assistance.

Cool, thanks for those. I will probably have another flight attendant class next fall.

Oops, well, you might be able to realise that the above posting was from me. Sometimes I forget to sign in after I'm re-directed from my email.
