Coromandel Outdoor Language Centre is an English language school combining English learning with outdoor activities, giving learners a uniquely New Zealand outdoors experience. The cornerstone of the PTE is its philosophy of ‘learning by doing’. Learners will typically have their lessons in the morning and then activities in the afternoon. This allows learners to practise their English in everyday situations while enjoying what the Whitianga area has to offer. All the teaching staff have experience teaching overseas and with international learners. There are teachers from the United Kingdom, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. They use up to date methods and techniques to ensure that students make maximum progress and encourage a relaxed atmosphere so everybody feels comfortable speaking English, both in and outside the classroom.
