Studying at a New Zealand high school can be challenging, particularly for students in the senior years. Often the biggest challenge for international students is not the subject content, but the English language environment.
Therefore, once students have started their high school programme it is important for them to continue to improve their English over the course of their entire high school programme.
The High School Holiday is a fixed two-week course run each school holiday break during the academic year. It is run as a part time morning English course and full time programme consisting of morning tuition and afternoon activity programme.
Students study English in the mornings with a focus on academic writing, general communication skills, or preparation for the IELTS examination. In the afternoons, students will join an activity programme which may include museum and art galleries, Weta Workshop, Zealandia, hiking, kayaking, board game cafes, and other fun activities.
While on this course you will:
- Focus on building vocabulary
- Identify any grammar weaknesses
- Improve academic writing skills
- Improve communication skills
- Make international friends and have fun
