I’ve gone through a series of applications and disappointments. I walked-in with Korean Air, JAL, Singapore Airlines, Nok-Air, Air Asia and Bangkok Airways. It felt like I’ve turned airline job applications into a hobby. When you can cut the language barrier, you have more time to spend on other aspects that are equally important when applying for a job in the airline business: your facial expressions, how to make eye contact. It’s also helpful when you’re in a group discussion—you have to show them that you’re great with teamwork by not speaking too much or offer too little opinions.
Wall Street English gave me confidence—nothing is more important than that. When you’re confident then you’re able to express your opinion without the voice in your head telling you that you’re going to make mistakes. It’s unbelievable how you can really rely on your English communication when applying for the cabin crew. You can broaden your networking. Accents are no longer obstacles standing in your way—you can understand and interpret ambiguous messages. This came from Encounter classes where Native English Speaking Teachers coached me and participated in various WSE activities which never fails to enrich my confidence. This makes me feel at ease when I’m speaking English as if it’s my first language.
