Why do I need an Australian teacher?

While there's a lot of choice for an online English teacher - a lot more than there was when we started 10 yrs ago, the fundamental decision though hasn't changed. A student still needs to ask themselves the same basic questions: Why do I need to improve my English? Who am I going to be talking English with? Where will I be speaking English? English compared to other languages is easy to learn (I could be biased😉) but it is a very large language covering many different cultures.

We also thought that teenagers would not have enough self confidence, life experience or attention span and commitment to speak with an adult in a conversational, free flowing manner. Our experience over the last 10 years though has shown us clearly that we were wrong on all of these points! When teenagers have learnt with us they have done just as well if not better than our adult students. So we've tried to think of their specific needs as well as their parents in designing a program...
