Three inevitable trends are changing the face of language education: Personalisation, digitisation and globalisation.

Australia will enjoy the temporary benefits of a more inward facing US/UK but these three trends will shape how international students learn English. When the tide turns, schools that are prepared will flourish as others will struggle to survive.

International students can already learn with a native speaking online tutor from Australia for a fraction of the cost of flying here, and skip the visa.  Online teaching will grow 27% in the next 3 years and will become both an critical market funnel for physical schools and profitable post-enrolment opportunity.

Alex Asher, founder of LearnCube, will share insights on how to succeed online from working closely with dozens of world-leading online language schools, including global leaders Lingoda and Babbel.  His hope is that Australia with its favourable timezone with Asia, qualified teaching pool and strong reputation will become the new online teaching powerhouse.

In this session we’ll go through a simple business blueprint to ensure your school is not blindsided by the wave of opportunity hitting our shores and to future-proof your school.
