EF International Language Schools is a New Zealand branch of a large private educational provider called EF Education First. EF in Auckland is one of 40 EF International Language Schools in 14 different countries delivering programmes using shared curricula and materials. The international headquarters of EF International is in Zurich, Switzerland. EF Auckland has everything you could ask for in a language school: a central location, comfortable modern facilities, an enthusiastic team of English teachers, activities scheduled both during the week and on weekends, and a friendly international student body. Students from over 30 countries attend our language school in Auckland each year, so you can count on studying with people from a range of countries. English language tuition is delivered using a blend of information technology and face-to-face methods. Each course option includes a mix of General English lessons, iLab lessons (involving the use of interactive media including iPads), special interest lessons (SPINs) and lectures. SPIN classes are offered on a six-week cycle and focus on language, culture and arts, exam or academic preparation or career development. Entry to any SPIN choice depends on students’ English proficiency levels. Weekly lectures cover aspects of New Zealand culture, lifestyle and geography.
