We work closely with local schools to prepare students to settle easily into the New Zealand classroom situation and adapt to a method of study that may be new to them. We have found that our students achieve good results because they have gained confidence in a more sheltered environment. We aim to fully prepare students for study at tertiary level in New Zealand, with a score of Band 6 in the IELTS Test. We recommend a minimum of 12 weeks study. However, the length of study depends on students' entry level and we have found that most students need at least 24 weeks to prepare themselves adequately. Students will study the structure and functions of English language, in preparation for the Listening, Reading, Academic Writing and Speaking tests. Tests will be given at regular intervals so that students can measure their progress on the IELTS scale. New Zealand orientation will also be included in the course. Graduates of Mount Maunganui Language Centre have gone on to successfully study at Auckland Institute of Studies, Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology, Auckland University, AUT, Otago University, and Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand. We accept students from 14 years old, and we have no upper age limit.
