The first class approach is communicative and learners are encouraged to use and practise the language as much as possible. The teaching methods are skills-based (reading, writing, listening and speaking) with vocabulary and grammar structures introduced around interesting and relevant themes to suit and motivate young learners.
Explore Auckland with fun, cultural and sightseeing activities! Through kayaking in beautiful ocean, sailing in Auckland’s viaduct harbour, meet cute sheep, the iconic kiwi bird and more! Experience life of a typical New Zealand teenager and share such memorable moments with friends from the same class.
