Taupo Language

English Language School

Taupo Language is a smaller school (capacity of 80 students), with a family like atmosphere, where everyone knows everyone. With an average of 7 students in a class and a maximum of 10, you do get A LOT of teacher time. Only English is spoken in the streets of Taupo, so you have to practise your English 24/7. This makes the time spent studying shorter and less expensive. Taupo Language students come from more than 25 different countries, so you will make friends from all over the world! We offer 40+ adventure activities; bungy, tandem skydive, skiing, rafting, hiking, golf, rugby etc. Long-term students are encouraged to join Taupo sports teams while studying. You can stay with one of our friendly homestay families, where there is further opportunity to practise your English.

The beautiful Lake Taupo is about the size of Singapore – more of an inland sea really.

It was created nearly two thousand years ago by a volcanic eruption so big it darkened the skies in Europe and China. Visit the Craters of the Moon and you'll see evidence of the lake's fiery birth in the geysers, steaming craters and boiling mud pools. At some of Lake Taupo's beaches, swimmers and paddlers can enjoy warm, geothermal water currents.

Just north of Lake Taupo you'll find New Zealand's most visited attraction, the magnificent Huka Falls, where more than 220,000 litres of water thunder over the cliff face every second.

Taupo is a great lake for water-skiing, sailing and kayaking. The Māori rock carvings at Mine Bay, which can only be seen from the water, make for a great boat trip or kayaking excursion. The forests surrounding the lake offer hiking and mountain biking to suit all levels of experience.

But what Taupo is really known for is fishing. The town of Turangi has the largest natural trout fishery in the world; this is the place to cast a line and look for the big one. Turangi also happens to provide a convenient base for exploring Tongariro National Park, whether it be walking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing (New Zealand's most popular day walk) or skiing at Whakapapa and Turoa ski fields.

Great Lake Taupo is centrally located in the middle of the North Island, approximately 3 1/2 hours drive from Auckland and 4 1/2 hours drive from Wellington. There's a genuinely friendly culture here and plenty of accommodation – so why not stay awhile?
