Language Schools - New Zealand


New Zealand is full of good English language schools. The standard of education is very high and you will find good schools in most locations around the country. NTIS New Zealand recommend schools in Nelson, Christchurch, Queenstown, Wellington, Rotorua and Auckland. All of the schools we use are schools recognised as being of a high standard. We only use schools that have an excellent reputation, small classes and good pastoral care of students. You can combine English lessons with other activities such as skiing, cookery, scuba diving or golf. Often the language school itself will arrange after school activities.


Studying at a language school provides good opportunities to make new friends and gain valuable life experience. You will meet students from many countries around the world.

Questions about Studying English

These questions and answers are repeated in our Frequently asked questions page.

How long do I need to progress my English?
This is difficult to answer here as the level and ability of every student varies. This also depends on your enthusiasm. Some hints are given below.


1. Even if you study English for a long time your English will only really improve if you practise what you have learnt. If you spend most of your time overseas socialising with friends of your own nationality your English will not improve as much as if you spend time practising what you have learnt at English school.

2. Before you go to Overseas.
You will have the opportunity to write to your host family before you arrive in New Zealand. This is a good opportunity to practise your English before you even leave home. It will also force you to learn certain words and phrases that you will find useful when you do leave home.

3. At your Homestay
Try to spend your time with your host family rather than  in your room. you will hear more English words and be able to practise English

4. At school
Make an effort in class to speak out. This is difficult for Japanese students but is quite acceptable and indeed encouraged in New Zealand or other English speaking countries. Your teacher will tell you if you are wrong - but in most cases you won't be!

5. After school
Go outside to cafe or go window shopping. You will hear English being spoken. You will learn how to order in a cafe or pub - this is much better than studying at home.

6. When you get home

Keep in touch with your host family and friends you met whilst overseas. Many students return in the future to visit their  host family or friends.
