Are you looking to make Australian and Japanese friends?
Do you love drinking and are looking for drinking partners?

Guidelines for joining:
* Please bring ID.
* Please wear smart/casual clothes.
* Please bring money to buy drinks. It's an alcohol drinking group and you need to be able to buy your own drink at the bar. (If you want to just drink water, sorry, but this is not your group. There are many other wonderful groups in Melbourne where you can do that.)
* Please speak Japanese or English or both.
Beginners in Japanese and English are also welcome.
Looking forward to seeing you there
- Jason and Saya

English Language Learning Directory
on One English Tutoring
Our most popular page is actually a favourite of both teachers and students. One on One tutoring is on the increase. More and more native speakers are leaving their day job and taking up part time private English tutoring. This page gives a few tips and sites on where to get easy lessons and conversation exercises for private tutoring. While the page is mainly for tutors, many students will find these exercises useful.
and Video ESL Podcasts
Our second most popular site lists ESL podcasts, both video and audio. This page is new but has already moved up to the second favourite at Speakoz.
and video English help
Our third overall top page is the audio and video page. Listing links and products for studying English using sound and vision, this page gets a lot of interest all year round.
Language Learning Directory
The English Language Learning Directory page is a brief stop over before going to other pages. As a result, many people find what they want then bookmark it. Even so, this page still ranks as the fourth most popular page at Speakoz.
And finally the 5th most popular page is the IELTS preparation page. This lists sites where students can get information to help them study for the IELTS exam. Another recent page, this moved up to fifth place pretty quickly. An external link we recommend is IELTS Listening Tests
Moving up the ranks suddenly after being forgotten for about 6 years, the English Articles database is a useful resource for discussion topics. Students can print for reading practice and teachers can print to use in pronunciation practice and vocabulary building. Now at 6th place.
A repository of various websites that have since closed. They still contain useful articles and interesting features to help improve your English skills. At 7th place.
