Japanese blogger’s week at Campbell

Ayumi pictures

English New Zealand hosted Japanese blogger Ayumi Murayama at six NZ English Language schools in NZ in August and September. Campbell was lucky to be one of the schools selected for this programme.

While in Wellington Ayumi attended regular classes at Campbell and in the evenings and weekend she was able to experience what makes Wellington the cultural, arts and film capital of New Zealand. Activities included a visit to Te Papa, the world-famous Embassy Theatre, Weta Workshop, The Lux Light Festival, and Wellington Night Markets. Ayumi also ate at restaurants featured as part of Visa Wellington on a Plate, and watched ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ ballet at the St James Theatre. Check out her pictures and blog posts from her trip there.

I love it here! I’m very interested in art and design, and there are so many historical buildings. I like the mix of old western culture and other cultures which have brought somethings to the city. There are lots of very open and artistic people. People here spend a lot of money on art and welcome those artistic minds.

I like Campbell because of the mix of academic and fun aspects of studying the language. I’m not good at making friends, but at Campbell, I’ve made lots of friends!

Campbell has a really welcoming atmosphere.
