Introduction:

I can help you with Fluency, Listening and Responding quickly to a native speaker

Do you want to speak more fluently in everyday conversation? Want to be able to listen and understand people speaking at native speed? Want to be able to respond to native speakers quickly? If so, then I can help you!

Hi Everyone!
My name is Marellda and I am from Australia.
I have been teaching English for many years in Japan and in Australia and now I am excited to join Skimatalk.

To help you sound more like a native speaker, I'd like to help you with 4 things.
1. Pronunciation
2. Fluency and rhythm
3. I correct your mistakes and teach you how to make your speaking more natural
4. I teach you vocabulary that native speakers use. For example, words like "Brekky", "Maccas", "Arvo" as well as idioms like "I have butterflies in my stomach"

I can also help with the Versant test and IELTS speaking.

I highly recommend these courses on SkimaTalk: English News for Beginners, English News for Intermediate learners & English News for Advanced learners.(I recommend a double lesson for the Advanced news articles)
These news articles are a good way to learn English, we can practice pronunciation, improve your reading skills, learn new vocabulary and have a discussion.

My advice for improving your English skills:
* Practice speaking English regularly. (2 or 3 times a week is good)
* Review words from previous lessons and try to use them.
* Have fun! When you have fun, you will learn more and enjoy it more. So it's important to relax, smile, laugh and have fun!

Let's learn English together. I hope to learn more about your country and teach you about Australia.
I hope to speak to you soon.
