Whichever course you select, we can guarantee rapid progress through our combination of expert tuition and a friendly atmosphere. Your learning experience will not be limited to the tutorials as we arrange leisure activities and social outings on a regular basis where you will have the chance to put your new language skills into practice and develop your proficiency in the target language.

Our mission is twofold: to provide high quality, affordable language services in a supportive, friendly atmosphere where students come first, whether their goal is academic, professional or personal self improvement, and emphasise the cultural aspect of language learning.

At the same time, we are committed to providing learners with language training that accommodates their needs and prepares them to be part of the society they might travel to, live in, work in or educate their children in.

The curriculum at Language Matters is designed to support this mission by providing learners with the necessary language tools to help them achieve their goals. Language Matters is committed to excellence and service at the highest degree.

Language Matters specialises in language tuition and cross-cultural training in English, German, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.

The services on offer succeed in the market largely because of our determination to consistently deliver on what we promise. Language Matters has gained an excellent reputation amongst leading secondary schools throughout Melbourne and has ongoing contracts with a selection of schools offering the International Baccalaureate.

Private tuition is arranged at times that suit our clients’ schedule and at locations such as their office or at the privacy of their homes within a 20km radius of the CBD. This eliminates travel times and/or set course times for our learners and gives us and advantage over conventional language institutions.

All our tutors are native speakers and not only teach the language of choice but implement cultural understanding with a strong focus on fluency and intercultural awareness.

The premises of Language Matters is located at 804/69-71 Stead Street in South Melbourne, overlooking Albert Park Lake, has tram stops close by and ample parking directly in front of the building.

Private tuition is conducted either at the Language Matters’ premises, or at the learner’s home/office, and tutor visits are arranged within a 20km radius from the CBD, at no extra cost.

Courses are outsourced to community centres and currently take place at the Brighton Recreation Centre in 93 Outer Crescent, Brighton and at the premises of the Temple Society in 152 Tucker Road, Bentleigh.

Language assistance and IB teaching is scheduled and classrooms assigned by the schools using our services. Sessions are incorporated into the schools’ timetable.

Cross-cultural training is conducted at the training room facilities of the relevant company or at business centres throughout Melbourne.

Language Matters operates from Monday to Friday between 8am to 8pm, taking into consideration that most private tutorials are scheduled before, during and after work hours.Under certain conditions such as prior to exams or where only limited time is available to reach a learning outcome, weekend sessions can be offered with a 15% surcharge.
