"Nikki is a wonderful teacher who managed to achieve in a short time what others could not. I gained a lot of confidence in my aeronautical English tests, and learnt to make great descriptions of images and videos."

Hi! I'm Nikki, an ICAO Aviation English Examiner & Instructor with over 20 years of teaching experience ‘under my wings’.

I've always had a love for languages, a passion that led me from my home in the UK to Spain in 2002 to immerse myself in learning Spanish. My journey in language education began soon after and I quickly ended up running my own language school alongside being a Cambridge English Examiner.

I was fortunate to be able to merge my love for languages with my enthusiasm for aviation when I became an ICAO Rater at my local flight school. This combination of interests and expertise culminated in the creation of Plane and Simple English, a business dedicated to supporting pilots and air traffic controllers in achieving fluency and confidence in English in an aviation context. I offer specialised aviation English courses, exam preparation, and continuous support, which began face-to-face and is now expanding online.

My thirst for languages continues, and these days I dedicate my free time to studying Korean and dreaming about where I can travel next. My goal is to become a full-time digital nomad and live the dream!
