Lyrebird Language Centre is proud to have reviews from students:

Eric Krcmar – ★★★★★ a year ago

Great fun our 13 year old enjoys learning Japanese with Elli, anyone who can make learning fun is doing the right job especially for young people

Graeme Hubbard – ★★★★★ a year ago

Our son Tahj has been learning mandarin with Elli now for 3yrs. In this time Tahj has been able to grasp great comprehension of understanding, speaking and writing mandarin. Elli is very kind and loving towards the children whilst keeping them engaged. We also feel its a fun, yet educational  environment  for the children to learn mandarin. We also believe its up to us as parents to also ensure our son does the required homework that Elli provides weekly. We  highly recommend her service.
