This was my fifth language stay since 2016. It was the best language stay in this time. The class was the biggest. There were 15 students who joined it. It was the most disciplined class of all classes since 2016, so I was able to understand the most. The second oldest class mate was 31 years old. All class mates were very, very nice. The national mix is god. There was each one from Saudi Arabia, Czech Republic, Indonesia, Korea and Thailand and a few of Columbia, Brazil, Japan. The list is not full.The worst discipline was in Edinburgh where were only 8 students in spite of them. 6 of them were polish who screamed in confusion. In Auckland there was the best teacher in the last five years. about the place:New Zealand was not able to present its scenic advantages because the last rain dropped in December. The school is not far from the harbor. There are lots of good restaurants. There are also much restaurants in the city which are called coffee where you can eat very god and very cheap.I have never visited a country that has as friendly people.If you think my English is improvable I will do a second language stay in New Zealand next year.GreetingsJosef

Ich habe viel gelernt während meines vierwöchigen Sprachaufenthaltes. Der Unterricht war interessant und die Lehrer waren sehr kompetent. Ich hätte es toll gefunden, wenn man Wahlfächer gehabt hätte und so seine Lerninhalte selbstständig mitbestimmen könnte. Das war leider an dieser Schule nicht möglich.

Auckland è una città davvero bella, pulita, organizzata e verde. E si trova molto lavoro.In generale è pieno di caffetterie e ristoranti molto pittoreschi, e la sera è assolutamente da stare fuori, le birrerie e i pub sono molto belli, e la città in generale è molto sicura e piena di vita. I professori sono stati tutti eccezionali, e sempre pronti ad aiutare gli studenti se avevano bisogno di qualsiasi cosa, anche fuori dalla scuola. Ci sono un sacco di gite organizzate tra cui scegliere, assieme a studenti e insegnati, sono molto belle e spesso ti portano a visitare posti magnifici.

La escuela y la familia fueron maravillosas. La ciudad, no tanto. Auckland es una ciudad que no casaba nada con mi estilo de vida e intereses. No obstante, la elección de la ciudad fue mía. La familia era maravillosa ^^

I have wanted to study English in an English speaking country for years. In fact, I think immersion is the best way to learn a foreign language. I chose Auckland because I have been to New Zealand several times on holiday and I love this country. Firstly, there are always a lot of exciting and fun things to see. New Zealand is famous for its fantastic scenery and you can discover this country every weekend. Also, Auckland is a cosmopolitan city surrounded by water and volcanoes. Its harbour is beautiful; New Zealanders are very nice and relaxed. I also enjoyed my school NZLC located in Auckland near the harbour – what a beautiful place! I have improved my English lots. The courses were very interesting and the teachers are very helpful. I definitely recommend this school – it was a great experience for me!

Duration: 5 weeks

The past 5 weeks in Auckland have been an unforgettable experience, during which I managed to improve my English significantly and communicate with other people in a more fluent and easy way.

Teachers are competent and always very approachable, especially in case of problems. I felt so comfortable that sometimes I forgot I was at school. The school is well located and offers many different activities after class. I met students from different countries and cultures; we had fun together and today I can call them my friends.

New Zealand is perfect for people who are passionate about sports (rugby, football, basketball…) and nature. I had the chance to admire amazing landscapes! I lived close to the city centre, in a lovely family that took the time to show me their country and their lifestyle. I highly recommend this destination!

I just want to thank you. I have been in New Zealand for 4 weeks and this Friday was my last school day at NZLC. I enjoy every day here. The school is beautiful, I was able to improve my English from intermediate to upper intermediate and even advanced level! The host family you chose for me is certainly the best ever! I am very happy to have booked my stay through you. I am going to stay an extra 3-month in Auckland as from tomorrow on I have a landscape gardener job! Then I have three months left to travel… thanks a lot for your help! If ESL had not been as friendly and helpful during the first contact, who knows where I would be now? ☺Friendly greetings from New Zealand!
