In the past year, I met three teachers and they are the best education team I have met in my life. I’m Taiwanese learning English in Australia. In the beginning, I wasn’t able to speak even a sentence, but Jessica and Sukin were very patient to us. From my perspective, one of the most important things for junior English learner is to be given confidence by others. I had been taught by two of them from basic English. Finally, when I reached level 5, I met teacher Jayne, she would push us a little bit to learn more. I want to say again that, they are the best education team I have come across. They are so professional that they can be fully trusted.

Yuan Hsu

My tutor Richard was always very encouraging and helped me through the entire process step by step.

I recently completed my certificate 3, I highly recommend it. Supportive & friendly staff, cooking facilities with great hygiene, tidy uniforms, good vibes. My placement was paid and I was promoted from level 2- level 3 in just a few months and received offers from renowned restaurants before graduating. Thanks to my chef Robert & Fiona-they always guided me with clear explanation & full energy.
