Furthermore, the tutors’ ESL teaching experience of over 20 years in countries all over the world (including Brazil, Spain, Greece and France) means that they can offer useful advice on a variety of TEFL teaching contexts to those who wish to find work overseas.

Both Melbourne English teacher training centres offer a unique and intimate learning experience which allows the tutors to focus on their students’ specific needs, being the empowering of the TEFL students by boosting their skills, comfort and confidence the main goal for the tutors.

The trainers/tutors are also passionate about foreign languages and embracing multiculturalism. They speak French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish.
