Why should I study with ETLC?
ETLC was established after many years of teaching, both in Australia and overseas when I realised that many (sometimes high-level) students were struggling to achieve their IELTS scores. I spent 5 years researching why this was happening and discovered that there were a number of reasons for this problem. Firstly, studying for exams like IELTS was an intimidating experience - often because of the technical, academic language used in the many different resources available. I also found that in General English classrooms, very few students were being taught how to put an essay together often because course schedules did not allow it to be a priority. Based on my conclusion that test preparation did NOT have to be so complicated, I began to write my own lesson content with the focus on KEEPING IT SIMPLE! For those studying OET, it is sometimes difficult to find the appropriate practise materials, so at ETLC, we have formulated our own bank of OET resources to help with your preparation. The teaching methods and resources we use for all ETLC courses are designed to break down the four skills into logical steps and simplify the process to help you achieve the results you want.
Who are the tutors?
ETLC is managed and administered by myself, Wendy G Kearns. While I have some great colleagues who can help with General English, I am passionate about helping international students to achieve their goals and have done so for many years, including teaching both here in Australia and overseas. I consider it an absolute privilege to be a part of their journey and it gives me great joy and pride to be able to make a difference to their future.

How many students are in each class?
Most of our IELTS and OET Preparation classes are now private so we can offer much more specialised, individual attention than is possible in a school classroom, where there is often 15 or more students. However, we also offer group classes for up to 4 students which can be a big help when test time comes around.
