Earlier this month ex-NZLC student Nobuhiko Horiuchi contacted one of our staff members to update us on his life back in his home country of Japan.
I came to NZLC in August 2014 and I started a full-time General English course. I learned a lot in my General English classes and then thanks to some advice and counselling from an NZLC staff member I decided to take TESOL too. This gave me the extra challenge I needed and also an amazing qualification to put on my CV!
Although I had studied some English in Japan, living in NZ and speaking it every day made me improve a lot! My speaking confidence especially improved because NZLC classes are really communicative.
I returned to Japan early in 2015 and found a job in a
foreign company using English every day!
get this position simply because I learned English at NZLC and thanks to the
NZLC staff, teachers and friends! Having a good level of English gives us a BIG
advantage when looking for jobs in Japan!
I still keep in touch with my many friends in Brazil, Colombia,
France, Switzerland, Korea, Taiwan, China, Thailand, of course NZ and
I’m sure I will see them again and we are planning
to have a school reunion every two years!
I studied English very hard because it was my purpose but at the same time, I really enjoyed the New Zealand life with my friends. We traveled together on the weekends and planned parties and activities for the weekdays too. I can still remember every moment clearly. Such beautiful days those were.
we graduated, we all went back to our home country but we continually stay in
contact and now we have friends all over the world who we can visit!
