Chunhua Ye, English Language Training Scheme Student

 

I have been an ESOL student at EIT for 15 months.  With teachers’ help and my positive study attitude, I achieved 7.5 in IELTS.  The most impressive aspects about our language school are the passionate teachers, multimedia teaching style and a warm study atmosphere.  I love EIT and I am proud of being a part of it.  I am definitely sure that what I have learnt here will benefit my whole life.

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.

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
