  13. Is there any difference in NAATI online class and a face-to-face class?

    The online class is actually better than a regular class.
    The NAATI CCL class does not involve a practical component where you must observe a teacher. You need to practise dialogues and vocabulary, which can be done online as well; there is no difference. We give you dialogues with answers so you can practise independently. For feedbacks there are live online classes and 1-on-1 mock tests.
    The only difference is that online CCL class is much more affordable (less than half) and convenient. Why pay $800-$1,000 when less than $400 gives you more practice materials and classes.
