Are you seeking New Zealand residency?

Have you recently sat and failed your IELTS or PTE test? If you don’t know what these are, there’s no need to read any further! If you do, well then this one is for you.

If you haven’t passed these tests and only have a short time before sitting your next one, then you need help, FAST! However, there’s no need to panic. The quickest way to improve your English is to learn the best technique and practise, practise, practise.

But, how do you know if you are practising the correct technique? That’s exactly why we created the Masterclass Excellence in English course. Here you will learn the correct technique for improving your English efficiently and effectively with the help of the exercises provided so you can practise. Thanks to the short, 3-5 minute videos and the accompanying PDFs, you’ll be well on your way to acing that test in no time.

Lead by Say It Clearly founder and training director, Miriam McKenzie, rest assured, you will be getting the right support from someone who has had nearly 30 years of experience in education and training, as well as post-graduate qualifications from tertiary institutions in New Zealand and the UK. Not to mention the fact she’s incredibly particular about what is right and what is wrong in speech. For example — the word “you” is both singular and plural so there is no need, ever, to add the “s” sound to the end of the word. That’s a big no-no.

When Miriam previously spoke at a Southland Institute of Technology lecture, she received some fantastic feedback that we want to share with you, so that you know you’re in safe hands.


Hi Miriam,

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to speak to my GBE class. Both times you have spoken to the Communications class at SIT I have had great feedback from students. Your really practical exercises have helped them prepare for their presentations and your tips on breathing control and relaxation have been particularly valuable.  Your great style ensured that the classes were engaged and really keen to try out the exercises.  Your material is particularly useful for my student base which is predominantly overseas students who speak English as a second language – your extensive knowledge of speech ensures that you know exactly what they need to do to achieve a certain sound or create clearer speech.

Thanks so much,

Kind regards Fiona Casey, MBA, BSc, SIT Lecturer (2014) 

Clear spoken English isn’t just necessary for passing residency tests, any employer looking for staff will be wanting their employees to have an excellent grasp of English. The Masterclass is just the course to get you speaking English correctly, clearly and confidently. It truly is essential, so what are you waiting for?
