Ich habe mich 2 Mal angemeldet aber es konnte leider nicht durchgeführt werden wegen dem schlechten Wetter. Schade gab es kein alternativ Programm. Einen Ausflug gab es leider nur am Freitagnachmittag. Von meiner Unterkunft war ich leider nicht so begeistert was ich aber meiner Betreuungsperson schon mitgeteilt habe. Ich war im "The Setup on Dixon-Hostel". Für die 25 Franken pro Nacht weiss ich dass ich eigentlich nicht viel sagen kann und die Lage war perfekt. Nur hatte mein Zimmer und ich glaube auch viele andere nicht ein richtiges Fenster. Also es hatte eines welches man ein wenig öffnen konnte. Dieses Fenster ging aber in einen Innenhof wo noch ganz viele andere Fenster hin gingen. In diesen Innenhof konnte nur durch 2 Fenster welche auch nur ganz ganz wenig geöffnet wurden frische Luft eindringe. Die Luft war demensprechend immer sehr abgestanden und das Zimmer zu jeder Tageszeit stockdunkel wenn man das Licht nicht angeschaltet hat. Im Gang, der Küche und auf der Toilette hatte es auch keine Fenster. Man riechte die schlechte Luft schon im Eingang. Es war allgemein nicht wirklich sauber sei es in der Küche, im Bad oder im Zimmer auch wenn man immer wieder Leute sah die am putzen waren.. Es war für diese 2 Wochen in Ordnung dort zu wohnen, länger hätte ich aber nicht bleiben wollen.

Do you think you've made progress?
« 2 Wochen sind nicht lange aber ich glaube kleine Fortschritte konnte ich machen. Wir haben sehr viel Gespräche geführt in der Schule was mir am meisten gebracht hat und da es sonst keine Schweizer in der Schule hatte habe ich immer schön Englisch gesprochen. »

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.
