New Zealand Community Education Centres

ESOL July Holiday Programme for Adults - Elementary+ [Fees apply for non-residents].

Learn more English and practise what you already know in a fun, supportive and friendly environment. We’ll focus on building your confidence and skills in interacting with others in English. [Free for NZ citizens and residents - if you're a resident/citizen and the course is full, please contact us!]


This short course (3 days a week for two weeks) for those at elementary - lower intermediate level will get you practising the English language you’ve been learning, so that you don’t forget it during the holidays, but it’s also open to new students. You’ll help to choose the topics and will find out more about life in New Zealand, as well as having the chance to talk with native speakers and learn outside the classroom.

 By the end of the course, you’ll:

  • Be more confident speaking to people, and asking questions in English
  • Know more about NZ culture and customs
  • Have increased your vocabulary and improved your grammar
  • Have met new people and visited some places of interest in Wellington
  • Take away a record of your activities, with stories and photos
