You will find out that even the largest cities in New Zealand, like Wellington, are much smaller than other great capitals of the world and the locals are very friendly and laid-back. However, you will still find all the facilities that a big city has to offer. Of the main museums, we recommend the Museum of Wellington City & Seabuilding and Te Papa Tongarewa, where you can learn about the history of New Zealand, from the first Maori colonisation. The centre of Wellington is dotted with bars and nightclubs, along with other tourist attractions such as theatres, cinema production houses and contemporary art museums. There are also parks, botanical gardens and panoramic viewpoints from which you can admire the city views. The school also organises a monthly programme of exciting free time activities.
You can choose from a range of options and find the one that best suits your needs.
Staying with a host family is one of the best ways to experience New Zealand culture and practice your English at the same time. Our families are carefully screened and regularly checked on by our staff. Homes are within easy reach of the school by public transport and travel time varies from 15 to 50 minutes. You will be allocated a single or double room (on request) and can choose either half or full board.
If you are looking for more independence and a handy location, sharing an apartment in town is the perfect solution. Wellington offers a variety of apartments to meet different budget needs. All are within 15 minutes walk of the school. For further information, please contact us at the following address:
