Learning Australian English as a second or additional language or dialect is best undertaken through speaking and understanding the language through actual conversations. As your coach, I will provide feedback throughout the sessions, as well as introducing you to the colloquialisms unique to Australia.
Sounds awesome, don’t ya reckon?
As a new speaker of English, you may hear some expressions in your daily conversations that you do not understand — yet. The Conversational Australian English coaching sessions will help you learn these expressions, so not only do you know what a person is saying to you, but that you can use the expression yourself.
You can choose the level of conversation to suit your requirements:
Beginners English — designed for those with limited or no oral language competency
Emerging English — designed for those who have basic oral language competency
Developing English — designed for those who wish to further oral language through engaging conversations
Business English – designed for those who have sound oral language skills and want to better understand language in a business setting
Sessions are organised by theme and relevant to chosen level, for participants to achieve their desired outcomes quickly.
Sessions include: Basic Social Encounters, Greetings, Small Talk, Introductions, Ending a Conversation, Good-Byes, Agreeing, Disagreeing Conversational Encounters, Focusing Attention, Launching the Conversation, Making Friends, Complex Matters, Disputes, Discussion and Resolution, Polite Encounters, Prefaces, Communication Barriers and much more.
Participants are welcome to structure the sessions based on specific requirements.

I see myself as the communications queen having observed for many years that most relationships suffer through lack of sound communication ability.
