Private English language programmes in Rotorua are less expensive than the larger cities and tend to have smaller class sizes. Because there are fewer students in a class, teachers or instructors have the time to work closely with you.
Parking and petrol are cheaper in Rotorua compared to the larger cities. There is free parking at all schools and many places in the inner city. For older students that gain a New Zealand license, cheaper petrol means you can enjoy cost-effective travel within the district, to surrounding cities and towns or further afield.

Becoming fluent in English gives individuals the means to move beyond their own backyards and explore the outside world. The best way to learn English is to fully immerse yourself. Rotorua is not as multi-cultural as Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch. The advantage of this means that you will practice speaking English more than speaking your own language. We also don't just teach the language, we assist you in becoming articulate English speakers, to have the ability to work, learn and live well in an English speaking environment. learn-wingspan.
