PLL theory in English

Hello everyone

Do you guys have suggestions as to how acquire an EASA ppl theory with an English exam these days? Will UK continue to be EASA country in that regard come January?
Asking on behalf of an English speaking - based in Denmark. Denmark do not offer the exams to be taken in English. Sweden perhaps?

Thanks guys

In Poland you can have both training and exams in English language.

Actually many EASA authorities like Austria, Croatia, Poland, Sweden provide English test for PPL (A) Theory exams.

You can contact with Pan Aero for PPL (A) Theory training in English. It is based in Croatia.

As far as I know they provide distance learning as well.

Good luck.

I would advise against doing your PPL theory exams in Poland. I did it in 2016, and while the school gave me all the resources I needed, the questions were translated from Polish with Google Translate. The questions and the available answers did not make sense and the only way to pass the exams was root memorisation. I passed the exams in one day, so it was not hard.

Hopefully, after 4 years, things have changed and the ULC improved their database. For the rest, my experience with the ULC has been very positive.

Banana Joe's comment made me laugh.

Several years ago I got a German PPL based on my FAA certificate. I had to take two of the written tests. I speak German. I studied in German. The test proctor set the test to English "because you're an American..." Awful. I could barely recognize the origin of some of the questions. It wasn't that the translation was all that bad, but the vocabulary choice was definitely not "Aviation English."

Germany has three different radio licenses - VFR in German only, VFR including English, and IFR in German or English. As an instrument rated pilot I was allowed to do the latter as an initial R/T license. I passed the test in both languages. Some native speakers failed, though it was for pilot-knowledge not linguistic issues. I had crammed big time for the test. They knew more about flying in German than me, but I knew more about flying than them. I eventually turned the validated FAA certificate into a real German JAR PPL with a checkride in German. Timing was perfect, on first renewal I turned it into a modern EASA PPL. Did glider and aerobatics in German, too. I miss flying in Europe and the UK.

Language can be a funny thing.
