COLC is the FRIENDLIEST Language School in New Zealand.


Coromandel Outdoor Language Centre is a small and unique language school in a beautiful part of New Zealand. 


Whitianga is a SMALL SAFE town by the sea.


This is an awesome place to learn English.  We get great results and you will have a good time here.


We teach communicative English in a way that makes learning fun.   We believe in “Learning by Doing” and have a fantastic “Activity Program”.


We teach English as a second Language, but you will learn a lot more than that when you spend time with us.


Our classes are small, with a maximum of 12, and an average of 8 students per class.  


Every Wednesday night the school runs "Open Night", which is a great way for all students to get to know each other.

Coromandel Outdoor Language Centre is a peaceful family-like school with breath taking scenery around. For me it was the perfect place to prepare myself for the Cambridge First Certificate because I had to study during the week and on Friday afternoon I joined the Activity Class.
