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.
Learning English helps EIT students to find their feet
Starting a new life in a foreign country is never easy. Immigrants have to leave friends and family behind, adapt to new customs and adjust to the basics of everyday life. The biggest issue that newcomers face is the language barrier. Not being able to communicate makes you invisible and affects every area of life.
No doubt, there is no way around learning English if you want to feel at home in New Zealand. EIT students Sandra Sosa-Rivero and Heeya Yun have accepted the challenge and are tackling the intricacies of the English language together. EIT’s English Language programmes have not only increased their language skills, they also created wonderful friendships and opportunities.
