Spanish ICAO study material

Hello everyone!
I'm not Spanish, but grew up there. I currently hold and English level 5 and Hungarian as it is my native language. I would like to do the Spanish exam to extend my possibilities to get a job when things get normal again (before covid I met Iberia Express' criteria, except the language exam). I found that FTE Jerez does exams, but I can't find any kind of preparation material to study from. Can you help me by sharing some kind of book, or whatever?
Thank you in advance!

When I contacted them back in 2015 I received the following response together with a 9-page pdf-attachment "Spanish ICAO Test Preparation Tips" which also included two YouTube links of aviation events for watching and listening to. I found it adequate as preparatory material ahead of the test which was scheduled about a week later.
Estimado [...], [...]

El Supervisor español -Agencia Estatal de Seguridad Aérea, en adelante AESA- ha aprobado dicha prueba y, como tal, es aceptada en todos los países miembros del entorno EASA.

La prueba tiene una duración aproximada de 35 minutos y consiste en una evaluación presencial. Este examen evalúa todos los niveles lingüísticos ICAO del 1 al 6.

Contenido de la prueba:

1. Preguntas abiertas para ayudar al candidato a relajarse.

2. Describir una fotografía relacionada con la aviación y preguntas relacionadas con este tema.

3. Colacionar instrucciones de radiotelefonía.

4. Identificar errores intencionados en las comunicaciones entre un piloto y un controlador aéreo.

5. Ver un video acerca de un incidente aeronáutico y describir lo visto.

6. Escuchar un informe acerca de un incidente aeronáutico y volver a narrar lo escuchado con las palabras del candidato.

7. Preguntas sobre temas de aviación general.

Tenga en cuenta que debe acudir a nuestro centro de Jerez para realizar la prueba. El test una vez grabado se envía a un examinador experto que es el encargado de evaluarlo.

Cuando lo tengamos calificado, podremos emitir el certificado.

El coste total de la prueba es de 175€. Se puede pagar el mismo día del examen en efectivo o con tarjeta de crédito.

Antes de realizar la evaluación nos tiene que facilitar los siguientes datos personales:

• DNI o número de pasaporte
• Fecha de nacimiento
• Una fotografía tamaño DNI
• Número de licencia de piloto/ controlador
• Dirección postal
• Email
• Número de teléfono móvil


Esperamos que esta información le sirva de ayuda, quedamos a su disposición para responder cualquier pregunta.

Atentamente,

[...]

Assessment Officer
As they were sending recordings away for independant evaluation elsewhere it was two weeks later when I received the result and the certificate. Not sure if Hungary or other non-spanish EASA Member States would include the spanish language proficiency level in the licence, the UK (at the time an EASA Member State) and Ireland would not. In that case you just keep it as a separate document. Would you hold a spanish EASA licence you will be able to proudly show it containing two ICAO language proficiencies!

Thank you for the information! Are you native Spanish speaker?
No they won't include any other in the Hungarian one, but still, it would be useful to have it, and I have time to study until the industry gets a bit better. Can you maybe share that pdf and videos you got?

Nationals of countries with spanish as the official language when taking a flight test in Spain for a spanish licence with a spanish examiner are generally issued the SLP-6 based on that flight test provided the RT has been satisfactorily conducted in the spanish language as judged by the examiner. In that case the SLP will be entered into the spanish licence. Not so in my case, I had to take the test in order to provide official proof of spanish language proficiency (SLP) and I keep the FTE-issued certificate as a separate document.

It is definitively worthwhile to obtain your SLP and it will open up opportunities that you would otherwise find inaccessible.

Check your PMs.
