As we move past the shortest day our thoughts are turning to what the better weather of the next New Zealand summer has in store.  We are starting to get inquiries and bookings for English plus Activities, and English plus Environment, both of which will run alongside our General Course this summer.

FCE Exam Course 

We are also providing an FCE Exam course this year, beginning on the 10th of September. This is a 12 week course and will finish in time for the early December exam dates. This is an opportunity to come and do your study and gain a qualification all before the very best summer weather kicks in, in NZ.  Once the exams are done you can either join the Activities course or head off on your travels around our beautiful country.

 COLC classes are fun.

Summer brings all the fun of activities to school and learning English takes on a whole new meaning.  Learning often happens best when we shift the focus away from the language.  Those who have been to COLC know what we mean by “Learning by Doing” and our summer activities programme is the best way to experience it.

English plus Environment gives you a new way to learn.  English lessons in the mornings are mixed with 3 afternoons a week out in the environment taking part in projects that are really making a difference.  We don’t just talk about caring for the environment, we get out there and do it. From helping re-establish Kauri trees on the peninsula, to kiwi protection, and the growing and planting of thousands of native plants. You can come to NZ to learn English, and make a real contribution to nature while you are here.

English plus Environment runs all year round and covers many different sorts of conservation. Different projects may take priority at different times of the year, but you will do a variety of different things while you are here. The world is finally waking up to the fact that we all need to take care of our environment and the COLC Environment Projects are a great way for you to play your part.
