You can choose from three locations, with schools in Auckland, Tauranga and Christchurch. Whether you’re looking for a full study package (23 hours per week plus added services) or something more streamlined (20 hours per week), we have it all available for you.
General English – communicate and socialise
Our General English course is great for helping you make your way with confidence in an English speaking country. Our experienced teachers aim to make it fun to learn real-life, everyday English. Classes are 20 to 23 hours per week depending on the location you choose. Lessons include a mix of skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking), as well as language practice.
IELTS Examination Preparation
A solid result in the IELTS examination will make it easier to work, live or study in many English speaking countries. We offer classes at foundation and advanced levels, and our teachers will help you learn strategies and develop the skills needed to perform well in the exam. This course will give you access to the latest resources and your progress will be regularly assessed. Studying in this class will help you make the transition to tertiary studies.
Teaching – English as a second language
Our TESOL Programme is an introductory course for people who have little or no previous English language teaching experience. It will help you improve your language awareness and develop your language-teaching skills. The programme is delivered by a range of qualified and experienced English language teachers and trainers.
Please note this course is subject to demand.
