Frequently Asked Questions

Mount Maunganui - that's an unusual name. I’ve never heard of this place before, where is it?

Mount Maunganui is one of New Zealand's best-loved beach resorts - this is where New Zealanders go for summer holidays. Come and find out why!

So this school is not in Auckland?

That's right, we are located about 2.5 hours drive from Auckland International Airport.

This school is by the beach, does that mean it's just for fun, and not for serious study?

Definitely not! Yes we are in a fun location, but our study programmes are serious.

If you want a six-month Academic Preparation course, or if you just want to brush up your English for two weeks, we take your study goals seriously.

And after all that hard work, the beach is the perfect place to relax!

Lots of schools offer General English and Exam Preparation courses, why should I choose yours?

Being a small school means the number of students per class is lower, so you have more chances to speak with your teacher than in a big class.

Our students consistently achieve excellent exam scores in New Zealand in Cambridge and IELTS examinations. Being small means we treat you like a member of our own family and can personalise your study plan for you.

I want a guarantee of quality; can your school give me this?

YES. our school is a member of English New Zealand we are also a member of IALC - the International Association of Language Centres. To be a member of these associations we have to meet higher standards than schools who are not members.

We are registered with the NZQA, the official New Zealand Government body, and have been designated a Category 1 Institution. We are signatories to The Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 (including Amendments 2019)

Am I too old or young to study here?

We accept students from 14 years old, and we have no upper age limit. The average age of our students is 25 years old, but we regularly have students aged in their 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. Any age is a good age to learn English!
