When the tutor has your EASy Report results we will understand your needs and goals this may include accent reduction:
Especially in a university setting, accent reduction may be crucial in order to properly communicate in a group setting. Other foreign students may very well also be present. If you are speaking in a classroom with students from foreign countries other than your own, whom also have their own accents and ways of understanding English, it may be very difficult for them to understand all of your words. Even native Australians may not always understand all of your words if you have an extremely thick accent. Your confidence can quickly evaporate when you see the confused expressions on the faces of your peers. This is why, especially for university English, your accent is just as important as the words themselves. Our tutors can help you to quickly reduce your accent in spoken English.
This is another language component that is especially vital in a university setting. Vocabulary development is essential for listening and understanding your professors and fellow students, as well as for expressing sophisticated points, concepts and theories in required written materials, essays, reports and open discussions.
Grammar is important for every English learner, especially for students at academic English language levels. However, proper grammar is important for more than just academia. Once you transfer into a career, you will need to have a clear understanding of grammar so you can give a great first impression at interviews or any professional setting. Preparing for the real world is part of your university experience, and your speech should reflect all of your hard work and education.
ORAL PRESENTATIONS AND ESSAYS
This is one of the ways we tailor our university English lessons to each student. Emphasis on oral presentations and essay writing is an enormous asset to English language development, especially while taking certain required university courses, often which include speech, comprehensive reading/writing, communications, humanities, and other courses that require a heavy amount of essay writing to determine your marks.
This part of your academic English tutoring is double its value. Many students enlist exam preparation tutors regardless of the language they speak, simply to achieve the best marks possible. With our ESL Tutoring Services, not only do you receive English language lessons but also exam preparation assistance, so you are on par even with native Australian students taking extra exam preparation lessons to get ahead. International students can often earn higher marks than native English speakers, simply because of the extra effort and time they devote.
By the end of your lessons, your IELTS score will improve significantly. If you have never taken the IELTS, we can help you prepare for the different sections of this test. The IELTS is used by universities and corporations alike, to determine language proficiency. As a universal measurement of language knowledge, high scores on the IELTS can certainly be useful when applying to jobs or universities.
