Education information

New Zealand is an exceptionally calm, picturesque and beautiful country: the standard of living here is high enough, while the cost of living and studying is relatively low. Oakland is constantly on the list of the TOP-10 cities in the world for life, and in general the beauty of the local nature, the diversity and favorable climate attract thousands of students and tourists. 

In addition to quality education and a wide selection of schools and programs, the country offers interesting, fascinating, active leisure and cultural programs for international students. New Zealanders practically live in the open air, so here very popular are sports and active games, picnics, barbecues and hiking and walking tours. You can enjoy a beach holiday on golden sand, or you can go skiing on the slopes of glaciers. Unforgettable national parks (for example, the big Abel Tasman) give an opportunity to get acquainted with various marine animals and fish: fur seals and lions, dolphins and whales are represented here in huge numbers, and many representatives are endemic and are found only in this region.

In the list of TOP-10 language schools, centers and colleges in New Zealand you will find best educational institutions that provide high-quality English courses for adults and teenagers. In addition, SMAPSE experts have placed for you descriptions and prices for programs and courses, students' feedback, so that it would be easier for you to choose the most appropriate option.

TOP language schools in New Zealand for international students

Each educational institution in New Zealand undergoes mandatory state accreditation. As for language schools and centers, the state commission divides each one for 3 categories:

  • the first is the highest
  • second
  • the third.

The highest status of language schools means the best quality of teaching, comfortable classrooms, modern equipment, the availability of additional services and the final level of knowledge of graduates. The second and third groups, respectively, are slightly lower in the indicated parameters, although one should not think that a school of the third category will not give proper education. In any case, the qualifications of New Zealand language teachers are high; according to statistics, the number of successful admission of their graduates to local or European universities is also large.

The methods in New Zealand English schools are different, but everything combines the richness of materials, an innovative approach, the use of modern teaching methods outside of school. For example, the Cambridge OpenMind 6 Level program (6 levels) offers workbooks in MP3 format, access to an online library with audio materials in a set of training materials. Studying English at each level lasts 12 weeks, so you can complete the full course in 72 weeks.

The variety of English programs depends on the purpose of learning the language, entry level, duration of classes, time of visit. It is noteworthy that you can choose a course in the morning, in the afternoon or in the evening. It is possible to combine study and work, which is also useful for active English practice. You can start classes on any Monday, groups are formed year-round. The program lasts from 1 to 72 weeks (if necessary, any course can be extended), the number of lessons per week is from 5 (as a rule, these are individual one-to-one classes) to 45 (Intensive Course). Study groups are formed according to the results of entrance testing of each student. Each lesson lasts 45-50 minutes.

The overview table shows the most popular types of English courses:

Curriculum

Description

Intensive course (most popular):

Part-time (less than half the lessons)

Full-time

The maximum possible number of lessons per week is up to 40. Classes are divided into groups, working with a teacher, self-analysis, preparation for the next lesson; much attention is paid to speaking practice. 

General English

Levels from basic and higher. Low intensity of classes - about 20. 

If necessary, you can add a load by including additional lessons, for example, business English or preparation for language exams. 

For adults 40+

Classes resemble a club of interests - they are built in situational English in a lively environment: for example, during an excursion to a winery, in a museum or on the coast. 

Professional English

Thematic English with the study of terminology, language cliches, scientific abbreviations, reporting rules, writing research papers, etc.

Possible internship in enterprises of the studied orientation. 

Private lessons with a teacher

An opportunity to improve parts of English that are difficult for a particular student. 

Business English

Study of grammar, special vocabulary on texts, tables from real business documents. Working out typical partnership dialogues, building negotiations, writing business letters.

Where are the best English schools located?

Institutions that offer English courses are dispersed throughout the country, and the level does not depend on the size of the city - even in small settlements there are language schools of international class. Most schools are located in the capital of New Zealand - Wellington - as well as in Auckland, Tuarang and other cities. Many schools are located in green areas or, conversely, in the midst of urban life, close to shops, cafes, bars and cinemas. Lovers of break away from the metropolis will appreciate the international English school on the island of Coromandel, located in a small comfortable building: this place is known for its colourful national festivals and extreme races that any foreign student can visit.

Almost all language groups are multinational - here you can make acquaintances with tourists from Thailand and China, Brazil and Cambodia, European countries, Japan, etc. International relations can be useful in the future, and personal communication will be an excellent English practice.

Accommodation conditions in language schools in New Zealand are comfortable and diverse:

  • Residence. Living near the school. Individual accommodation is possible, as well as for 2-3 people, and with group accommodation, school leaders often offer discounts up to 30%
  • Cottage. This option is usually offered by institutions located in rural areas. Accommodation in the cottage is possible in a local family with full language immersion. This is a chance to get acquainted with the way of life of New Zealanders, enjoy the local cuisine
  • Teacher's house. It gives the same opportunities as living in a family cottage + constant communication with your teacher gives an opportunity to ask a maximum of questions
  • Student residence, hostel. An opportunity to save money and actively communicate with like-minded people.
