At some point in nearly everybody’s life comes a time when studying or working in another country pops into ones head. This is common practice throughout the world and is a move that can bring much happiness in success.
Whilst moving temporarily or indefinitely to another country is appealing, the idea of taking your belongings to a country that speaks a foreign language is one that is slightly more challenging and one that might require a little more thought.
Many people choose New Zealand as their preferred destination, being that the climate is comfortable, the people are friendly, quality of life is excellent and opportunities are wide spread.
However, before you head over there you’ll want to track down an English school in the town or city you’d like to move to. Deciding where to head to will often come down to your lifestyle preferences, people you know, accessibility and being able to find the best quality institute to carry out your English studies.
Perhaps the best place to learn your new second language is Auckland. The “City of Sails” is by far the biggest city in New Zealand and a city that is very welcoming when it comes to immigrants. If you decide to stay on in Auckland after the completion of your studies, then you can rest easy knowing that there are plenty of opportunities available to you.
Knowing which English school to select is of huge importance. You need to do your research and find out several things, such as the quality of lecturers, surrounding facilities, number of students, costs, nearby accommodation and the overall reputation of that institute.
You’ll also need to establish the date your course commences, how intense it is likely to be, how many breaks you’ll get and when it finishes. A sign of a quality institute that offers English as a second language is one that has a range of varying levels. Basic, specialised intensive, specialised super intensive and one-to-one are all options open to you.
Auckland is rich in culture, meaning you are likely to be among many different nationalities at your new English school. Who knows, you may end up meeting someone from your home town or city, or even your local neighbourhood. Either way, you can be confident that Auckland will make your transition very comfortable and easy.
If possible, you should try to live with someone that speaks English. This will enable you to pick up the language and get to know Auckland so much quicker.
