Ich habe meine Sprachreise sehr genossen. Neuseeland war das perfekte Land für mich und ist während meiner Zeit hier mein zweites Zuhause geworden. Die Menschen hier sind so freundlich und hilfsbereit und man bekommt einen guten Eindruck von der Kultur Meine Familie in Auckland war super freundlich und hilfsbereit, sie haben Ausflüge mit mir unternommen und mich gut in ihre Familie mit eingebunden. Meine Familie in Wellington ist zu meiner Familie in Neuseeland geworden, die haben mich alle super in die Familie integriert und mir Tipps gegeben. Mein Zimmer war Mega gut und persönlich eingerichtet und ich kann es kaum erwarten, zurück zu kommen, um die wieder zu besuchen.Meine Familie in Queenstown war auch richtig gut, ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt und wir haben uns super verstanden

Ma famille d'acceuil était très gentille. Ils ont fait de me mettre a l'aise. Ils cuisinaient des plats différents tous les jours. Ils me laissaient libre de mes activités meme si je rentrait tard. Je me sentais réellement comme un membre de la famille.

Host family
Being immersed in the culture of a country is without a doubt one of the best ways to learn the language. Living with a host family is a great opportunity to discover the New Zealand way of life from the inside, including the customs and cuisine, and to have a very enriching experience. It's also an opportunity to practise English on a daily basis. Chosen with care, the families know the school well. Located approximately 30 minutes from the school, you'll have your own room, half-board during the week and full board at the weekends.

The Setup on Dixon residence
You’ll love the location of this residence! Located in Wellington’s CBD, it’s just a stone’s throw from the vibrant port, a city beach and the language school. Rooms are private and come with a queen bed with free bed linen and towels, plus Wi-Fi, a TV, mini fridge, tea and coffee maker, a desk and chair. (Please note that some rooms may not have windows.) Bathrooms are shared, and common areas include a large kitchen, laundry facilities and a lounge with dining tables and chairs, a TV and comfy sofas to hang out on with your fellow residents.

Cultural, social and sports activities are an important part of NZLC Wellington’s program: they also enable students to practise English outside of the classroom. Whether mountain biking on the Wellington hills discovering the local flora of the city’s parks and surrounding forests or sea kayaking in one of the many bays around the city’s coast, the choice is yours! From skiing to walks through national parks, wine tours to aquatic sports; its impossible to list all that the Wellington region has to offer. After days full of adventure, you can spend your evenings enjoying barbeques, nights at one of the many cinemas or theatres and tasting the best New Zealand wines with your friends.
