  • Just minutes from the city’s stunning harbor is the EF International Language Center.

  • It's a modern, two-story building that’s very close to the heart of the city,

  • just off Queen Streetwhich is the main street where all the shops are.

  • And it's close to the waterfront with the viaduct,

  • where there’s lots of restaurants and nightlife.

  • A great location right in the middle of things.

  • It's my job at the school to look after the students,

  • to help them with their academic studies.

  • We place the students, have ongoing counseling and help them out until they leave.

  • When I arrived I couldn't speak at all.

  • I couldn't speak with anybody.

  • But now it's OK, I can speak about all subjects with everybody.

  • I can understand people from all over the world.

  • While studying at EF Auckland,

  • some students choose to live at the student residence alongside international classmates.

  • Others choose to live with a local host family to get a feel for theKiwiway of life.
