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.

Wellington est une ville vraiment geniale pour etudier. Malgres son statut de capitale la ville reste tres petite , tout est organise sur perimetre que l on fait a pied. Il est facile de rencontrer d autres etudiants, l ecole est tres bien situe. Et la population locale tres sympa. Bon compromis entre mer et petite montagne

Mi sono trovata a mio agio! I docenti e il resto del personale sono stati molto accoglienti e disponibili. Durante il mio soggiorno mi sono trovata benissimo. Sue e Michael sono stati molto ospitali e mi hanno fatto sentire come un membro della famiglia. In più occasioni ho avuto l'opportunità di conoscere il vicinato e di partecipare alle loro attività. Il quartiere in cui vivevo era abbastanza fuori dal centro, ma la vista (Karaka Bay) valeva veramente la pena. Spero che altri studenti possano vivere un'esperienza simile nella famiglia Barnett. Mikako (la responsabile delle gite) è sempre stata d'aiuto e molto gentile! Ho apprezzato l'allegria e l'entusiasmo che metteva in ogni attività.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Sì, penso di aver migliorato il mio livello di inglese. Abitare in una famiglia è stata una bellissima esperienza: ho avuto molte più opportunità in confronto ai miei compagni che vivevano in appartamenti di praticare l'inglese. Inoltre, le persone della famiglia erano molto disponibili e pazienti nell'aiutarmi quando avevo difficoltà con la lingua (soprattutto all'inizio). Ho avuto l'occasione di conoscere la cultura kiwi e di imparare espressioni di tutti i giorni che non si studiano sui banchi di scuola.Personalmente ho visto un gran miglioramento nelle mie capacità linguistiche nel corso IELTS. Ho trovato il corso molto stimolante e mi è piaciuto il fatto di avere un feedback settimanale con il professore nel quale discutere i miei progressi e come migliorare nelle categorie in cui avevo più difficoltà. »
Top tips
« Girare e visitare entrambe le due Isole. Ogni posto vale la pena di essere visitato.A Wellington consiglio il museo nazionale Te Papa; è molto interessante, ben fatto e gratis :) »

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.

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.
