Learn English and have fun in New Zealand! ABRAAO, 20 yEARS OLD / BRAZIL “I consider Wellington my new home. There is basically everything I like, beautiful places, parties, lots of activities, all concentrated right in the same place. Everybody should visit the harbour; the suburbs along the beach and the pubs and parties on Courtenay Place. People here are not like people from other capitals. Everyone is so relaxed! After working, people take their bikes, skates or scooters and enjoy the weather which is pretty good during summer and spring. Basically it’s a really cosy place where I can find everything I like.”

ALExANDRA, 23 yEARS OLD / FRANCE “NZLC has a friendly team. The teachers and administration staff are helpful and always have a smile. I think that’s important and helped me in my choice. The school is well situated in Downtown so you have all the commodities around you. The school works with a travel agency so you can easily spend a great weekend in many different places with your friends. The school does everything to make you happy and I really enjoy to be here!”

yUKI, 23 yEARS OLD / JAPAN “Auckland is a big city with many nationalities. People are friendly, it’s easy to make friends. I live with a Kiwi so I speak English a lot which is good for my improvement. Auckland has many yachts and we can go to beautiful places. NZLC is a very good school, there are a lot of courses so I can design my program to meet my goal. All staff are very helpful and there is good nationality mix as well. There are many school activities which is good to make friends and speak English.”

EUN HyE, 22 yEARS OLD / KOREA “I’ve been studying at NZLC Christchurch for 3 months. I’m really enjoying it, especially the after school activities. I have made many friends from other countries. My teacher is very nice, helpful and patient. I will join TESOL when I finish General English. The student services staff have been great at giving me advice about courses available.”

CAMILO, 17 yEARS OLD / COLOMBIA – yOUNG LEARNER “New Zealand is a great place for learning English, as you’ll find a really nice English accent. You can figure out how life is overseas as well as meet people from many different countries. Here there is so much fun and for sure nothing to be afraid of. Being a youngster overseas is not really scary, you meet new people, cultures, things to do and you can always have help from the staff.”
