“Hi, I've been in New Zealand more than 1 year and I have a scholarship from my country.
I chose to study at EIT because there are not many people from my country here, so it is a good place to learn English. Also they have lovely and kind teachers who are really helpful to us.When I came here I couldn't speak English but my teachers help me to do that in a short time.
Thank you to everyone at EIT!
Now I am studying at AUT in Auckland but I miss Napier and EIT”
Robin’s love of languages and travel prompted the start of her teaching career in Paris in 1987, followed by work in England and Italy. Soon after her return to NZ in 1993, she started teaching at the newly-opened English Language Centre at EIT. In more recent years, Robin has taken time away from NZ to teach on shorter programmes in China and Thailand.
At EIT's English Language Centre we have a proud reputation for excellence in teaching English to international students and new migrants to New Zealand.
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.)
