English Language

It’s always a good time to study English, and the English Language Centre (ELC) at AIS offers you everything you need to learn this exciting language.

AIS offers a variety of English Language courses to suit every student’s needs, even if you are a beginner. Our classes are designed to help you understand the English language, and our experienced ELC tutors will guide and support you every step of the way.

As well as learning in class, you will also take part in a range of planned activities and outings so you can become skilled at speaking and understanding English in a practical setting.

AIS English Language programmes are registered with the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) under the ‘English for Migrants’ programme for Immigration New Zealand.
