Are you planning to go to an English speaking university?
Do you need to improve your academic English skills for your tertiary studies?
Smart English Class will teach you how to improve your Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening as well as Grammar. All course material is delivered online and you can repeat lessons at any time.
Learn English anywhere, on any device with lessons designed for students learning alone. You will have unlimited access to all courses you are enrolled in.
The new way forward for teaching English in the classroom.
All students come prepared with their own laptop or tablet or even mobile phone to class and have access to all lessons. No more lost papers and handouts or forgotten text books, it's all in one place on the students' own device. This is the environmentally friendly and productive classroom.
No need to book the library or computer room. Everything you and your students need is right here - the students own computer will be able to deliver the course lessons, access the Internet for research and open up documents to complete all tasks and assignments.

Smart English Class was developed by Carolyn Martin
I live in Perth, Western Australia with my husband and three children. I have a Diploma of Education in English and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
My first job was teaching English in a high school in a far north western town in Australia called Port Hedland over twenty years ago. Since then I have worked in a variety of schools and colleges all over Australia including a summer term teaching the bridging course to students at the University of Melbourne.
Now I am working at the University of Western Australia teaching academic English language to students who are intending to further their studies at university.
My previous written work includes a series of text books published by Pearson Education called English Outcomes 1, English Outcomes 2 and English Outcomes 3.
I developed Smart English Class to modernise the whole learning experience and provide lessons online rather than using the same old text books. This way all students can access all lessons at any time from their own device while being able to research and write all in the same place.
I have a passion for writing and enjoy creating interactive and engaging lessons for all students. I hope you enjoy these online lessons from Australia!
