Host family
Being immersed in the culture of a country is without 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, the customs and cuisine, and to have a very enriching experience. It is also an opportunity to practise English on a daily basis. Chosen with care, the families know the school well. Located a maximum of 30 minutes from the school, you will have your own room, half board during the week and full board on the weekends.

Residence
Prices and information on request.
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.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Oui, je pense avoir fait des progrès. J'ai pu revoir et apprendre du vocabulaire. Et malgré un court séjour, la pratique quotidienne de l'anglais avec des personnes de pays anglophones et autres (fait assez rare dans ma vie de tous les jours) m'a permis de me défaire un peu de ce manque d'assurance que j'avais à l'oral, du fait de mon manque de pratique en situation réelle. »
School highlights
« J'ai aimé la diversité des nationalités présentes dans ma classe. Le personnel était à l'écoute et très sympas! L'ambiance de travail était bonne. »
