Visiting New Zealand and experiencing this great country while learning English would be a dream come true – in fact it is now a reality for Ayumi Maruyama!

Ayumi was recently selected by English New Zealand to be their first Great Study Tour blogger. Currently a student at Musashino Art University, Ayumi will get the opportunity to visit six of New Zealand’s premier English schools and experience what it is like to learn English as an international student.

While she is hosted by these schools in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, Ayumi will have the opportunity to visit some of New Zealand’s more well-known tourist attractions and destinations.

Horseriding, Hobbiton, Rotorua, Taupo, Waitomo and the Bay of Islands are some of the adventures Ayumi will have.  Kiwiana Tours will be providing these activities.
