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.
