Learn English in Auckland, a lovely, modern city situated on the North Island of New Zealand. Auckland is one of the most diverse cities in the world drawing on Polynesian, Maori, European and South East Asian influences, evidence of which can be found all around the city.  Auckland is positioned between the Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean.  Although Auckland is on the other side of the globe, it really is a wonderful place to visit and the perfect place to develop your English skills whatever your level.
