Our partner school is located in an elegant neo-Georgian building located close to a beautiful public park and not far from the bustling Newmarket District with its many bars, restaurants and shops. Parnell Village and its relaxed atmosphere are just a 5-minute walk away. The City Bus that runs from the school to the centre of Auckland stops right outside the school every 15 minutes. In the course centre, the beautiful garden and the terrace will allow you to make the most of your breaks. The 20 classrooms are large and some of them are equipped with interactive whiteboards. The school’s experienced and dedicated teachers teach English and guide the students in their learning with real enthusiasm. The study centre and the computer room with Wi-Fi Internet access make research work and communication easier for students, who come from all over the world. The library offers a wide choice of books and DVDs. The student lounge is a great place for participants to meet up and chat. Vending machines for snacks and drinks, fridges and microwave ovens are available for students who wish to store or prepare their meals. In addition, vendors selling fresh hot meals visit the school on a daily basis.

Testimonials

Fabio Alberto Quintero Escudero
Fabio Alberto Quintero Escudero

I'm from Bogota, Colombia and I decided to take a course to give my professional life more opportunities abroad. Traveling to New Zealand to improve my English has been the most exciting, rewarding and enjoyable experience of my life. At the begining I couldn’t say no more than a "hello, how are you?” Right now I have an IELTS result of 6.0, I speak fluently and I have a wide vocabulary knowledge, which demonstrate that my trip was fruitful.

Auckland is a city where you can find different recreational plans, such as visiting the Skytower with its beautiful 360 degree view of the city or trying Bungee Jumping from the Auckland Bridge. Also, enjoying a game of Rugby at Eden Park and going to several bars and clubs in the city center where is more amusing to practice the language. Kaplan is an institution committed to the student, attentive at all times and willing to guide you through the academic process, with teachers from around the world. Its infrastructure has two buildings each with cafeteria, computer room and study center where you can find all kinds of tools to practice and improve the language.

The most interesting part is the opportunity to share with people from different cultures, to get to know and live with them is really cool. Besides, you can do strange things that you never thought you would do, and that gives you a different perspective from what you're used to hearing of other countries. Studying at Kaplan-Auckland only involves a risk and that is "wanting to stay." I want to thank ESL for their support before, during and after the trip, without you this dream wouldn’t have come true.

Host family (from 16 years)
Ideal for full immersion in the language, host family accommodation is a very popular option with students. The families are selected with care by our partner school and live around 30-45 minutes away from the course centre by public transport. You will stay in a single room, with half board provided during the week and full board provided at weekends. You can use the family’s laundry facilities. It is a great opportunity to learn everything about the lifestyle of the inhabitants of Auckland!

City Lodge residence (from 18 years)
This residence is suitable for students who wish to be independent. You will stay in a large and light single room (double rooms available on request) and have the use of a private bathroom, a small fridge, Internet access (Wi-Fi) as well as tea and coffee-making facilities. Bedlinen and towels are provided. In the student lounge, you can watch TV together with your international housemates. The communal kitchen is available for use, so are the coin-operated laundry facilities. The residence is located on the campus of Auckland University of Technology, a 20-minute bus ride from the Kaplan language school.

The city of Auckland itself will offer you a wide range of leisure activities, whether sports, cultural visits or evening outings. The beautiful natural surroundings of the city invite you to discover the forest and its hidden waterfalls. Take a ferry in Auckland harbour, visit one of the small neighbouring islands and observe the numerous boats circling the bay. Every week, your school will also offer you a comprehensive programme of activities: city tour, football matches, ice skating, indoor climbing, kayaking… and also movie nights, quiz nights and pizza parties! At weekends, you will go on excursions with your new friends from all over the world and explore, among others, Waiheke Island, some 30 minutes away by boat, or Coromandel and its beautiful beaches, across the Hauraki Gulf. You will have an unforgettable time in this fresh and lively city!
