Many teachers use this 2 hour pronunciation course in their classrooms with their students to improve pronunciation. It shows how to teach all the difficult English sounds such as “th”, “l” and “r” and all vowels in 12 lessons. The sounds are explained with hand movements and close-ups and then practised extensively with an easy-to-use workbook.
You will also hear many, sometimes funny, real-life stories about other people who had difficulties with pronunciation. This will help your students avoid the same mistakes.
You will enjoy the great teaching and lots of practice! No preparation, except copying the workbook pages for your students and turn on the video.

“Are you sure they speak English here?”
Having just arrived in Australia, I couldn’t understand anything. As a teacher of English as a Second Language, I have also seen hundreds upon hundreds of people from all over the world and from all cultures grapple with Australian English and our Aussie ways. This book is a culmination of their, and my, views and reactions.

Enjoy this collection of anecdotes and examples of mistakes non-native speakers have made in the process of learning and using English as a second language. These stories have been collected over 25 years in various countries and from numerous nationalities, and include difficulties with vocabulary, pronunciation, writing and culture. All examples have a twist; by making unintentional mistakes, non-native users of English have added a new, humorous dimension to the English language.
If you are an English language teacher, this is also a powerful teaching tool to add to your repertoire. When you select certain student errors to get a point across, you will not need linguistic explanations. Students will get the point quickly and, more importantly, will never forget nor make that mistake themselves. Humour accelerates student learning and the good thing is they supply the examples. Make a note in your order and I'll send you the Teacher's Edition with 10 Teaching Tips.
“Luke Zimmermann uses hilarious stories to make the teaching of language come alive. As the title promises, you will laugh about English.”

A short course in Australian English and culture.
G’day, mate! is a course book for foreign students on tour groups or study tours to Australia, but is also suitable as complementary material for General English courses for overseas students or migrants. It is aimed at Pre-intermediate level; however, since many activities can be adapted to different levels, G’day, mate! is suitable for Elementary to Intermediate levels.
English for study groups to Australia. A short course in Australian English and culture.
This accompanies the student book and includes detailed notes on how to teach the material, answers for all exercises and extra activities.
This course book was written to help foreign students and migrants from all nationalities learn to cope with Australian English and Australian culture. It includes notes and information about Australian English, culture and places that would be superfluous for Australian teachers. However, I have regularly worked with teachers from other English-speaking countries who were not familiar with Australia. The extra information is for their benefit.
