Summer English Language Groups

English Language Groups

English Language Partners Wellington's been 'home' to a summer course - where learners can embrace their own and each others' cultures and bond over their shared experiences of living in Aotearoa.

To give a glimpse of the learning that's going on in the classroom, learners asked curious questions about each others' countries, agreed and giggled about what's surprised them about Kiwi culture and learned about their classmates' experiences in New Zealand and around the world.

They've also explored and expanded their knowledge of Kiwi customs and Kiwi English and learned little snippets of each others' languages!
English Language Partners Wellington learners explore their local I-Site.

Learning wasn't limited to the classroom. One sunny day, learners strolled down to the I-Site, where they discovered the must-sees and dos of Wellington. Many got chatting with the friendly staff and some scored great recommendations!

English Language Partners Wellington learners explore Te Papa.

On another occasion learners ventured to Te Papa. They received nuggets of knowledge from an excellent tour guide who introduced the similarities of Polynesian languages and how have connections to South East Asian languages.

One learner, Folo, helped the group pick up some Samoan vocabulary and shared his own knowledge on traditional Samoan tatau (tattoos) while they explored the museum’s new and intriguing Samoan Tatau exhibition.
