Domestic Students



Our General English Programme is for students who are preparing to study at an academic institution or for those who want to improve their English for career or personal reasons. 

The course will help you to learn to use the language in everyday situations in New Zealand. During your lessons you will learn new words (vocabulary), improve your grammar, reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. General English is taught at all levels from Beginners to Upper - Intermediate, having groups divided according to students' ongoing individual English achievements.

At NSLS we vary our teaching methods using videos and interesting course books as well as newspapers and magazines in the classroom.
