As such, there’s a focus on practical activity-based learning and engaging video-guided lessons, worksheets and workbooks. Brooke focuses on improving your English through skills such as debating, public speaking and drama, instead of tedious tasks from textbooks.

With her wealth of experience and global perspective, Brooke provides English education that is both innovative and based on sound educational theory. You won’t find better English skills education anywhere else online! All you have to do is sign up to The English Room and transform your life!

Testimonials

“Brooke's classes made me feel supported, listened to, encouraged and appreciated. She individually cared for us and catered to our specific learning styles, differentiating her lessons to suit all students. She didn't approach teaching as a one-size-fits-all, and this is something I will implement in my teaching style when I graduate with a Master's of Primary Education this year. I hope my students can feel the same way I did about attending classes with Brooke. She has inspired me to become a teacher and continue the lessons she taught me to future generations.”

“Miss Hardwick is one of the kindest teachers I've ever met, and thanks to her, I was able to enhance my English, including writing and speaking. Through workshops with her, I discovered my drama and public speaking talents. I also learnt logical thinking and how to prepare a speech for numerous events, such as Debating and Speech Day! ”
