Once upon a time, Acquire Language tutors were just a group of friends who studied, taught and interpreted languages. In short, we were a team of language nerds.
Over just a few years, our small club of language lovers has grown into a huge team of all-Australian language tutors who share a fresh take on language learning. As native English speakers, we have been where you are right now. We have studied, struggled, traveled, and struggled some more, but we have always thrown ourselves into our love for language learning.
We understand what you want from your language tutors. We’ve made the mistakes and we have done the hard work for you.
Most importantly, our team of language tutors can show you how to get the most efficient and effective results in order to get you fluent, fast.
Nicholas was an amazing help to our daughter. He is kind, considerate, and hilarious. My daughter has never had such an easy time getting along with a teacher, and her Spanish is doing great. Each week he leaves our daughter with custom created homework and sheets, and she is more than happy to sit and study after he leaves. Thank you Nicholas for bringing authentic learning to our home!
Aimee taught my two children Japanese while they were studying it at school. Within 2 weeks, their teacher from school had called to tell me that my children were excited, engaged, and thoroughly enjoying the language for the first time. Aimee was always on time, prepared, professional and had a great time with the girls. They can hardly wait to see her each week.
I chose to study with a Japanese tutor from Acquire, because of the incredible flexibility it afforded me. I am self employed and could never before commit to rigid course times. With my tutor (Aimee), I was able to customise my lesson times and schedule every week to fit my schedule, and my tutor was incredible at answering any questions I had outside of lesson times!
My tutor puts 110% effort into making our lessons engaging and entertaining. I never once felt like I was "learning", and Thursdays are now my favourite day of the week! Thanks Tom!
I spent years hoarding textbooks and listening to audiobooks, without ever remembering a thing. 4 months into lessons with Tom and I've never had so much fun or met so many likeminded people- and I finally can hold a real conversation in French!
Coming from a trade background, I never thought that I would get back to learning. That was until I met Nicolas from Acquire Language. The classes are quick, engaging, and a ton of fun. The courses are completely flexible and my tutor is always willing to help me anyway I needed. My Spanish has gone from pathetic to completely comfortable in 3 months.
At Acquire Language, we have extensive training and ongoing education processes.
As part of our hiring process, we require:
After these checks have been conducted and passed, our language tutors then attend regular training sessions throughout their employment. As a team of language tutors at Acquire Language, we believe in on-going education, even for ourselves.
As part of our commitment to excellent language tuition, we are each learning a new language for ourselves. This is because we believe in committing to a goal, and of reminding ourselves of the challenges to language development.
This means that as tutors, our ongoing training and constant education mean we will always be patient, understanding and compassionate about your journey.

With over 10 years experience in learning, teaching, and interpreting Japanese, and another 5 languages under her belt, Aimee has the experience in learning languages that can help you excel.
