    Melbourne Language Centre’s online HSP classes were well thought out while many other online classes were failing in their method of teaching during the unprecedented COVID time. My students thoroughly enjoyed the classes and were challenged by the skill level. They had real-time interactions with other students and teachers who worked hard to engage them during the class through the different activities like the presentations every Friday. At first, I had the impression of too many levels in HSP and both of my students were placed at a little lower level than they were because of their limited conversational skills, but it proved to be a source of motivation.  The students were quickly promoted through frequent level tests. I am proud of both of my students who actively participated during classes and asked questions frequently, and I appreciate the teachers who gave them a fun and supported environment even whilst taking place remotely.

    Mr. Paul’s class is so interesting to me! I have liked him since I had his first class. His teaching style is not boring and can always drive the atmosphere of the class. Moreover, under his leadership, I have the courage to try to speak up in debates that are difficult for me. In class, he would lead us to do many interesting activities and contacts, which made me more impressed with the knowledge I learned in class. I can’t remember exactly what happened, but attending Paul’s class was a kind of enjoyment for me and perhaps for my classmates, because we spent every class with happiness and laughter. My grammar has always been not very good, so I don’t like to listen to the teacher talk about the knowledge of grammar. Although I sometimes yawn during Paul’s lectures, I still do the exercises very carefully. In a word, I like Paul’s class so much. I really wish I could be taught by Paul all week, because I like the pleasant classroom atmosphere so much!

    I have been taking classes here for nearly a year, and I have learned a lot of new knowledge. My English writing and listening have improved a lot, and my vocabulary has also improved a lot. I think what I need impove is reading which is very terrible for me, so teachers often help me and tell me how to do the reading questions and teach me the skills. I like Mr. Paul’s class very much, because he not only teach us knowledge, but also he is very funny, often joking with us, often play games to improve our knowledge with us. He is so professional, I think he is the best teacher I have ever seen.

Fortunately, our teacher is kind and they are helpful during I am studying. The atmosphere here is good, we can have a good English study environment. During we are having class, the teacher will use some interesting language games to increase our memory about the knowledge that we learn in the class. They are enthusiastic and optimistic, they will always give us advice and help us become better in English.

    I have been in this class for nearly six months. In these six months, I have learned a lot, especially grammar and my writing. at first, my writing was very bad. After some examinations and exercises, I have learned a lot. The students here are also very good. At the beginning of online class, my classmates and teachers have brought me a lot of help. Teachers are also very good, class is very interesting, can let me feel that even online classes are not so boring

    I learnt a lot in the class, and see the handsome face every day. Just a joke. I spent about 18 weeks with teacher and students. They are very friendly and funny-for some students after class. It was so great to learn here. The teacher some times make some jokes during the class, but that not impact the knowledge we learn. That make the classroom full of fun and everyone like teacher especially Paul. He is a wonderful teacher with handsome face (joke again). I like this class and I wonder the others will like this class.

    It is always having a lot of fun attending Paul’s classes. He is an English teacher with a good sense of humor. I learn useful English here and enjoy his lessons. Group discussion activities and games like Kahoot and Quizlet help us to remember grammar and vocabulary. Also, he is patient when we are not paying attention in class. He is more like our friends in learning English. In the past, I used to think that learning English was difficult. However, I changed my mind now. I think that it is interesting and funny. I am grateful that I met this professional and cute teacher.

    My name is Xiaorong Yang and my English name is Jessica. I have been studying English for about a year at Acknowledge Education. I have been so lucky to have a wonderful study journey here, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic where almost every education organization met a big challenge to provide good quality services for their students. From my perspective, Acknowledge Education did a good job in this aspect.

    I arrived in Melbourne just before the border closed, but I enjoyed my course at MLC very much despite being online.  I loved when the teacher put us in breakout rooms. That way I was still able to make some friends and I am still in touch with them even though my course is finished now. It turns out that online school wasn’t boring at all because we did some  fun activities like quizzes and so forth. Also, my host family arranged by the school was very caring and helpful in many ways. I felt very lucky to live there.

    Through my studies at MLC, I have gained confidence with my English and I recently got a job with IGA supermarket!   I am looking forward to it!

    I started from knowing nothing about OET and it was difficult for me in every part. However, every staff here are very nice and explain step by step until I could understand how to practice and focus in each skill. There are many available materials provided for students to practice. I have a lot of friends here and spent time after class, including weekends to practice listening and speaking with my friends. I had totally attended the class for 2 months before the examination and I could pass at my first attempt. I am very happy to study here. Thank you very much for great teaching!”

    My name is Chhingly. I am studying General English in here now. I study in here for short time but I think it is the best place for me to study English in Melbourne because it is nearly the city so it is easy going to school. The classroom is so comfortable and the teachers are professional because they are good at teaching and have a lot of experience. When I study with them, they make me happy and I want to study here. So I think it is the best school and I love MLC so much.

    “I found that the IELTS Preparation course provided by the Melbourne Language Centre has really come in handy. Not only because the friendly teachers here help improve my English skills but it has also established a multicultural environment for students to have a chance to meet people around the world, to practise and communicate in English. It is a nice place for international students to kick off their education journey in Australia, and I really appreciate all the support given by Melbourne Language Centre.”

    “After searching for and reviewing many schools for my OET, I finally decided to enrol myself at MLC (City Campus). During the course we were trained by wonderful tutors who are well experienced with OET. I learned many useful tactics and tips to assist me to perform well in OET. The course runs with an introduction and acclimatisation to OET in the first two weeks and practices and exam-simulated exercises and tests in last two weeks. Other highlights of the centre include multicultural students from all over the world and a friendly and welcoming environment for all of them. I passed my OET and to my surprise, I even got 3 As and 1 B! In addition to my amazing results, what I have learned from the course is really valuable and useful in my daily practice. Thanks to Melbourne Language Centre, I achieved my required English scores, and I would like to recommend MLC to everyone planning to sit for OET.”

Surprisingly grammar in use is a bit different from Japan so it was hard to understand for me, but thanks to an enthusiastic teacher I have much more interest in it. Actually they are very good at not only teaching but also entertaining us. I am very lucky and happy to study here.”
