I’m very glad I came to New Zealand to study English! This month I’ve been learning  a lot in the school and every time I feel safer when I have conversations in English.

The teachers are very careful to adapt their teaching to the needs and expectations of each student. I’m also learning a lot about the culture and habits kiwis thanks to teachers share their knowledge and answer my questions. The school staff is also very helpful with practical matters within or outside school. Thanks for everything!

Hi there, this is Fiorella. Talking about my own experience studying at New Horizon College – throughout this time I’ve been learning a lot.

I am very thankful to my amazing teachers, they do more than teach English. Besides this the school is in very good condition and the staff is always able to answer any questions you are wondering.

I am so proud of myself because before I came to study I wasn’t able to speak English at all. Now I can say, yes I do.

Hi there.  My name is Lourenco and I’m from Brazil.  I’ve been in New Zealand since 25th November 2015.  I’ve been studying at New Horizon College since 20th June full-time at night.  This school is amazing because it has a mix of nationalities and you can study at three different times – morning, afternoon and evening.  You choose which one you want.  All the classrooms have a comfortable space and there are places to study.  Also, there is a big students’ lounge on the first floor with a snooker table to enjoy with your friends and maybe have a snack at the school’s café.

When I arrived, I went directly to the Intermediate level.  We have experienced teachers and learning is lots of fun.  This makes us rich with knowledge of speaking, listening, reading and writing in English.  Day by day I feel the improvement in my English.  Of course, we need to study and speak English outside school in our real life.

That’s all.  Welcome to New Horizon College.  Come and enjoy learning with us.
