Hi there! This page is all about location, scheduling and fees for face-to-face training in Melbourne, and getting in contact.

Have you already seen our helpful pages about FAQs, our range of services and approach to training, and our clients' feedback?

Note about training during Covid-19 outbreak

Training has been suspended again until (approx) late October. Your enquiry is still welcome.



Training outside Melbourne

If you are interested in face-to-face training in other cities, appointments for intensive training over a number of days can be made, but the client will be required to cover all costs. As most clients can't do that, consider our more narrowly focused online accent reduction program.
