Meet Mohammed, a student from Saudi Arabia

I'm studying English at NMIT in Nelson. Next, I'm going to Palmerston North to study Aviation.

New Zealand really welcomes people from other cultures. There are students at NMIT from lots of different places, even the Middle East.

Learning English here is great, it’s all around you!

The teachers really help you and my host family encourage me to speak English at home, especially at meal times.

What I love about New Zealand

Road trips! You can drive to so many cool places here, getting around is easy. Make sure you bring your camera.

New Zealanders love all kinds of food. I’ve even found some great Middle Eastern restaurants near my school, which makes me feel more at home.

Outside school I love seeing this beautiful country with my friends and living the Kiwi life. I’ve even been skydiving!

Watch the video above to spend a day in the life of Mohammed.
