“I never imagined how incredible my life would be working as a Demi-Pair and studying English in Melbourne. Currently, I live with an Australian family and I feel part of it thanks to the chemistry we have developed. I consider myself “the big sister” because I really enjoy the time I share with them, especially with the two children I take care of. This, along with my General English co?urse, has helped me to improve my English really quickly as I speak with locals at home and with people from all over the world in class. So, I’ve been able to learn a new language, a new culture, new traditions and meet so many interesting people too. Working and studying have not been a job, these are now part of my life and I would recommend everyone experience this in Melbourne”.
I highly recommend Mr. Shahvand’s classes because it helped me a lot in achieving my target score in the PTE examination. He tailored his teaching strategies to our individual needs and weaknesses in the examination. His reverse engineering of the answers from the real PTE exam, I would say, is the one of the greatest reasons why I passed the exam with good scores. Another strategy that I think is very effective about his teaching is the WhatsApp group. It helped the students to overcome their shyness and gain the confidence in speaking English.
I was very pleased with Discover English’s Business English course. The topics used in the textbooks were interesting and the teacher also made sure to include current affairs which made the course even more challenging. We also did daily listening of the live radio news which not only helped me with my listening skills but also gain knowledge of the current news in Australia.
My class had many students from different nationality and it was also interesting learning about their cultures. Communicating in English is not easy but people in Melbourne are very friendly and always tried to understand me. I have gained an exceptional experience of my life!
English Excel has nothing to do with spreadsheets, Microsoft Word or Power Point. This is actually a course that has helped me a lot to remove many of my errors when speaking and writing. It is a great combination of academic English and a much more advanced course. I love this class because it is small, so I get more attention from my teachers and classmates. The nationality mix is amazing! I have had the opportunity to meet students from Brazil, Japan, Colombia, Italy and Korea. The teachers are very experienced; I cannot explain how much I've learned from them. I meant to come here just for a few weeks and now I am extending my studies.
