Personal Tips on how you can prepare yourself a little bit for the Introduction Part*:
Since the Introduction is oftentimes about yourself (a warm-up) and your career to the test day(date), it would certainly not be a bad idea to maybe prepare some sentences in your mind (or write them down) that you would like to use, or at least think about what you want to say. For example you could say something about your Flight Training.
Just some basic things like …
My name is …. / I’m … years old / I’m (come) from …. / I’m a Pilot and ….
About your career:
I’m currently in training to become a Commercial Pilot /ATP …
‘My Flight Training took place in …’ / ‘I attended a Flight School in/near …’
‘Most of my Flight Training took place in … ‘
A few months ago I accomplished my Flight Training / I finally reached my goal …
‘My training airplane was/is … ‘ / ‘My favourite airplane to date is …’
‘Today I fly for… / Now, I’m a pilot at ….
If you like to talk about two things from the past and want to put it in one sentences instead of two, you can use the Past Perfect! To keep in simple, here is an example:
You did your Private Pilot License before your Instrument Rating.
You can say: ‘First I did my PPL. Then I did my Instrument Rating.’
In order to raise your grammar and/or improve your language skills a little 😉 you could also say this as follows…
‘After I had finished my PPL I started with my Instrument Rating.’
That is a combination of Past Perfect & Simple Past, just in case you care.
Of course you could apply this grammar for other things you would like to tell the examiner(s).
If you are not sure about the grammar just keep it simple. 😉
