We have adopted an Interactive Learning System for all our courses. A classroom is, in effect, a miniaturized society. You listen to what other people say, express your own opinion, compare and examine ideas, agree, disagree or compromise. You will gain indispensable skills to live in an English-speaking country without even realizing it!

We have small classes – a maximum of 12 students.

Our course qualifies for student visas.

We accept students, including those who want to enter a local school, from the age of 14.


The educational system of New Zealand is known for developing in students the power to think for themselves.

It also enhances employment opportunities and acquisition of permanent residency.
