We are passionate about quality teaching at affordable prices. The term in a group class is still  $330/$299 concession! We only employ qualified teachers with some years of experience who are also native speakers. Katharina Kleiminger, the director of the EMLC, and most of our teachers have been teaching at Monash and Melbourne University and/or other secondary or tertiary institution for many years. We regularily conduct teacher training courses to ensure quality. Our classes are small and cater for individual needs. We also offer private tuition for school and uni students and teach many companies. Furthermore we specialise in Intercultural training. Ask us for your options.

The Language Centre was established in 1989 in Lansdowne Street, East Melbourne trading as the German Language Centre. Due to demand we expanded our services to include the other languages currently offered and so evolved into the German Language Centre/East Melbourne Language Centre, providing the  multi-lingual,multi-cultural learning environment one enjoys today.
