Languages International

English Language School

Languages International is an English language school for adult learners in Auckland, New Zealand. At Languages International, our aim is to be excellent in every aspect of what we are and what we do: our school facilities, our English courses, the training and development of our teachers, support for our students while they are in NZ, and service to our students and their families before they come to our school. Established in 1978, we have welcomed thousands of learners to help them to achieve their educational goals and have an unforgettable life experience. As well as offering General English courses for students at all levels of English competence, we specialize in:

  • English for Academic Purposes - our English for University programme helps students to build the language and study skills they need to enter confidently into higher education in an English-speaking institution. We work with a number of highly regarded institutions in New Zealand to give our students opportunities to qualify for entry to their chosen course via a pathway. We also offer flexible, multi-level preparation for the IELTS test.
  • Cambridge Exams Preparation - we have long been trusted to guide students in their preparation for the internationally renowned First (FCE), Advanced (CAE) and Proficiency (CPE) exams. We offer preparation courses at all three levels, three times a year.
  • Teacher Training - the first New Zealand institution to run the globally-recognised Cambridge CELTA English language teacher training course in 1988, Languages International has since helped over 1,500 trainees to gain their first professional teaching qualification. We also offer in-service teachers the opportunity to gain the Cambridge Delta qualification, and have lead the way in providing other forms of professional development for teachers.
  • Workplace Literacy - since 2009, we have provided literacy support for New Zealand companies and agencies. Beginning with English language support for applicants to the NZ Police, The Literacy Professionals have since helped many New Zealand workers to gain more enjoyment and benefit from their work by improving their key language and literacy skills.

With an irresistible combination of magnificent natural scenery and a vibrant city lifestyle, Auckland is a place of exciting contrasts and endless adventures.

Auckland is New Zealand's largest city and main transport hub. Imagine an urban environment where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails and a dozen enchanting holiday islands. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture and a passion for outstanding food, wine and shopping, and you’re beginning to get the picture of Auckland, our largest and most diverse city.

More than just a city, Auckland is a whole region full of things to see and do. Best of all, with so many experiences close by it’s easy to hop from one adventure to the next.

A stunning natural playground

Auckland’s diverse landscapes provide countless opportunities to get immersed in nature. In the west, lush native rainforest plunges down the hills to meet the sea on dramatic black sand beaches, while the east’s sheltered golden sand beaches are fringed with red-flowering pohutukawa trees. To the north the rolling hills of wine country meet stunning coastlines and in the south you'll find picturesque country gardens, unspoilt forest and tranquil bays to explore.

Shopping and dining

Auckland is a shopaholic's paradise, with everything from top-end designers to open air street markets. Discover the diverse range of cafes and restaurants offering cuisine from around the globe and check out the buzzing nightlife of the central city. Favourite spots include Wynyard Quarter, the Viaduct Harbour, City Works Depot and the Britomart precinct.
Once you've seen the city, head out to one of Auckland's four distinct wine districts where you can sample local wines against the backdrop of vine-covered hills and sparkling ocean.

Hauraki Gulf and Islands

Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf Marine Park encompasses an incredible 1.2 million hectares of coast, sea and islands – and there are so many ways to explore it. 
The jewel of the Hauraki Gulf is Waiheke Island, a haven of beautiful vineyards, olive groves, farm land and golden beaches; and only a 35-minute ferry ride away from downtown Auckland. Sip on award-winning wines at some of the 30 boutique vineyards and wineries, enjoy fine dining and pick up superb local artwork.
Make sure you get out on the water while you're here, whether it’s a relaxing harbour cruise, a fishing charter, whale and dolphin spotting, kayaking or surfing.
