Simon Brieger, IELTS Preparation Programme

“I have chosen to study the Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) at EIT . To gain entry I needed to achieve an IELTS score of 7.0 Academic in every band and so I joined the IELTS Preparation course at EIT for 12 weeks. This was excellent and really helped prepare me for the IELTS exam as well as study in a mainstream programme. I had many opportunities to practise my English and I passed the exam with flying colours! I can say the teachers are great and willing to go the extra mile to help students.

Live the Language 

We believe there is more to learning English than just spending time in the classroom.  To encourage students to practise speaking English and to expose them to native speakers in the community, we organise activities within the curriculum to encourage learning in everyday situations.  The activities may include trips to businesses and sites of cultural and historical interest.  Students will bring back information and experiences to share in the classroom.

Because we believe your experiences outside the classroom are also important, we encourage you to join one of the 8 day trips offered by Little Brown Kiwi.  EIT has worked with Little Brown Kiwi to design two trips which we know our students would enjoy – one in the North Island  and one in the South Island. For more general information about Little Brown Kiwi, click here.  (Note that EIT does not organise these trips and you need to contact Little Brown Kiwi yourself.  They will organise a trip for you with some of your new EIT friends.)

IELTS, the International English Language Testing System

IELTS is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication.

EIT is a registered British Council IELTS Centre.
