Head Office

From our HQ, we are able to direct all language courses across Australia and New Zealand, arranging lesson location, billing, as well as administration and teacher staffing thanks to our constantly-updated database of native-speaking qualified language teachers.


Our teachers are all hired locally, so if you want to take, say, a German course in Melbourne, your teacher will live in Melbourne or close by. All teachers have criminal background checks run on them and their references and qualifications are always verified. We only hire teachers who are knowledgeable and have a passion for teaching. Occasionally, if we are unable to find a local native-speaking teacher of your chosen language, we can offer sessions from a non-native teacher, but only if they have native speaker level in the language they will teach.


The directors of Language Trainers have experience in all facets of the language learning industry, from several thousand hours of teaching to running entire schools. They are also linguaphiles themselves, and between them they speak a wide variety of languages.
